Our forum has grown so much it makes new situations appear. It is good that we grow and add many new members and their friends, spouses, or even daughters. But we have to be aware that this means we should post here as we would in a conversation with someone like a 15 year old daughter ~ which we have had here. This post is difficult but necessary. The Moderators and the Admin are not in favor of some recent posts. Overly graphic and/or sometimes insulting to other members. I personally consider this almost juvenile at times. See rule 3 (three ~ spelled out for you) below.
I understand that our disease requires graphic content, but...
When you need to be graphic, PLEASE consider taking the discussion into Email. Help us with a suggestion, also. But think that what you are posting can be viewed by the many children and loved ones we have in our experiences. This forum belongs to ALL OF US.
Any Insults or insinuations will be deleted without further notice.
I find this completely dumb that I have to post this message. C'mon guys. This is not a request for political correctness, but common sense.
This Forum is for ALL in the family of a prostate cancer patient!!!
Please review and make nice your posts. Or we will.
If there are posts you have made, good intention or not, that are questionable, clean it up. Go back and read the rules and ~ Clean it up! Or we may have to for you. Don't get mad at the new Moderators. You can blame me. I can take it. Sorry for the pending deletions. Kind of.
3. No posts that attack, insult, "flame", defame, or abuse members or non-members. Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member or non-member. Decisions about health and well-being are highly personal, individual choices. "Flaming" and insults, however, will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree. This applies to both the forums and chat.
This forum was such a great help to me that I also volunteered my time to help moderate. We have gained many members because of the forum format and we have lost some who don't like the forum rules. That's OK. If we can't keep everyone happy, we can keep those who follow the forum rules.
Please take this notice for it's intent to encourage us all to do the right thing.
