Delna! Like bulldog said, there's no need to apologize or feel bad about what you said!!

I was adding my opinion to this observation-just as you decided to add yours. I have benefited from others mentioning alternative meds to my pharmaceutical meds questions (like in one thread I posted below). While some people don't benefit from it, others do.

Although specific boards are for initiating questions about specific topics, conversations evolve to include other topics--all the time. Some people post questions about SSRIs and their health-should they be posted on the 'health' board or the 'med' board? Should we split the post in 2-direct 1/2 of it to one board and 1/2 to the other? If someone wants to talk about changing an herbal remedy to an SSRI, what board should they post on? If they choose to post this delemma on the meds board, should people be restricted from posting comments about the alternative remedy that they were taking?

A person's interest in taking meds can be related to psychology-health-grief, etc. It just doesn't make sense to me to censor all the reponses to a post, segregating thoughts rather than allowing well rounded discussions.

One member recently posted to not have alternative treatments mentioned in their post about meds-I believe everyone honored that persons request.

I guess my main point is that posts evolve, and it doesn't seem, of course just in my opinion, to have utility in restricting another's thoughts about questions and topics initiated by others...when people always have the option of taking or leaving the information presented. What may not be useful for some may be useful for others. IMO, I'd rather have people post things that I don't care to hear about rather than having thought police jump out to censor what others write. I can simply ignore those comments I do not wish to consider.

Nothing to feel bad about, just adding my opinion. Please do not take it personally-it's about the concept of censoring, not the person. I appreciate that you commented about this and please don't let my comment stop you from ever adding how you feel about comments, discussions, or situations. It's always good to hear all angles of perception regarding a subject. I believe that's what discussion and learning is all about. :)
