I can think of two exceptions to the good policy of leaving that forum alone, Hopinso...
...New posters who, unknowingly, ask a question there, or suggest some improvement that is not well accepted, and,
...If Dr. Emoto is correct, a single nasty name, affects the person labelled with it. How many would know to re-label themselves immediately, even just after reading a nasty pasted on someone else?
To tell you the truth, I have read very little posted by that gentleman, and I certainly never go to that forum...for I was able to learn about the treatment there from others.
Certainly people from all over the world come here to read, in any of a number of kinds of pain. Some do not read English very well.
I've read a few others who seem to have an odd attitude, outside of that forum.
Probably some avoid posts with my name on them, expecting that my opinion is concilliatory, or even 'Pollyanna-like'. (I determined years ago that it is okay to call people 'Honey', where I think appropriate, simply because those terms are not heard enough in this world.)
I don't mind that there are some who might be avoiding my posts. I know I can't please every point-of-view, and I write my real opinions, nonetheless...as gently as I can, when I feel someone might be hurt.
Maybe we should type in a disclaimer at the top of each post...everyone having their own. Then the reader would have a gist of the content of the post, in advance.
Any abuse of the unwritten rules of courtesy, throws the whole website in the garbage can...destroys the integrity of the majority of posters...and causes the nay-sayers joy, making a happy hunting-ground for flaws.
Still, it isn't our website, though we who post are the ones to build it.
Probably the posts which are the most valuable are the ones that chronicle success stories..."I tried this, and this, and this, and I am healed."
But, if those who are healed left these boards, for whatever reason, long before their success materialized, who is left to tell the tale?
That's the way I see it.
This is certainly not an easy situation to 'cure', is it?
