    I feel that we need a reminder of the rules of this message board. Here are a few I find important right now:

    "Please Note: This site serves the community in order to bring together people who have a health condition or are a caregiver. The purpose of these chat rooms and message boards are for exchanging ideas, and to offer comforting support to peers. [...] keep any personal information private.

    [...] To protect yourself, and the community, posting email addresses or instant messenger information on the message boards is not allowed. Do not post any other personal contact information such as phone number, address, etc

    [...] No arguing with anyone. Do not openly debate another person or the rules. If you find that a moderator is dealing with you in a matter that is unfair or contrary to these rules, send an email to: techsupport@prohealth.com

    [..] Please note Pro Health does not advocate any information in the chat rooms or message boards to be a reliable source of information. These are tools for community and support. If you plan on trying any treatment please communicate this with a physician or licensed counselor.

    Have y'all ever noticed that when someone posts his or her e-address, it's usually over the weekend when no one is at Tech Support?

    Okay, I'm new here but honestly think I went on this chat a few months back. I then came back and saw that the chatroom was gone. I'm so happy to be here but agree that the chat would be great! So, what happened to it? Did too many people abuse it?

    The issue seems to have been resolved- thank you moderators!! I was starting to get pretty frustrated.

    To answer your question earthdog, the chat board is still here. If you are having trouble finding it, it's located right above the the window for this message board- look for the purple band- the link says "chat" and it's on the left-most side of the purple band.

    Hope that helps.

    Many other boards allow members to post their e-addresses. They come here and don't read the rules and post their e-addresses. I am always suspicious when someone is brand new, claims to have knowledge about treatments which cure or help our illnesses, and then posts an e-address, especially over the weekends. It may be perfectly innocent but it could also be someone trolling websites looking for people to contact him.

    The person who posted his e-address is gone. If y'all see this, just click on the little alert triangle at the lower left-hand area of the post. It will generate e-mails to the moderators so they can address the issue.

    Love, Mikie

    I used to belong here years ago (2-3?) but stopped partially because of such problems. I am glad that you and everyone else is doing their best to make this a pleasant and welcoming place.
