You know for me anyway, it depends on how the person comes across. If they are a long time poster, or just another patient even, giving a suggestion of something that works for them, I think that's fine. If someone told me about a certain probiotic that I should look in to, talk to my doctor about ect... I'd be good with that. I've gotten a lot of really wonderful advice, and tips over the years from others who have tried different things. But I become VERY wary of anyone claiming something cured them, and they are selling it for a profit themselves. I don't think it's anything to fight over, but I can see why others get upset by people trying to peddle products to the ill. You just gotta be careful, that's the best advice I think.
