Lyn, i couldnt have put it better- the whole reason i joined HW was the kind, non judgemental, sensitive atmosphere. im sick of people questioning the rules- the rules are what makes this place better than other health forums- its only recently that people have started getting this way, and its putting a dampener on the spirit of this place.
ALSO- the rules are extremely clear cut on what is allowed and what is expected. when i joined up, i agreed to uphold these rules.
i have had a member email me and attack a mod in it- i found it distressing and it made me angry, as i have nothing but time, love and respect for the mods, and this person was beyond out of line.
when i first joined up, there was a feeling of calm and peace about the place. now a few people have taken it upon themselves to be sarcastic and unkind, which is uncalled for as we all suffer and that should bring us together, not divide us.
i have had to physically hesitate before responding to posts, as i am not sure how the people who posted them will respond- when ive tried to be kind and helpful, ive definetly been given a dose of attitude in return, which is so unfair.
hope that made sense, im zonked on painkillers as i have ruptured BOTH eardrums, joy of joys- but yes, lets get that 'family' feelin back!
