Guest newbie Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 hi, I have been lurking and reading posts for some time but this will b my first post. It looks like the forum threads are moderated but by who? I see names or id's but are these nurses or doctors? One in particular in the bipolar threads frequently comes across as crass. I do not mean to stir up any problem I am just concerned that there are a lot of well meaning folk on the forum and some are in fragile conditions. "Advice" is being offered as opposed to support. I have seen many occasions where a moderator n particular states she/he is not diagnosing conditions. But then continues to give advice. I also understand that some members here probably have a lot of long time experience with MI issues and such but again my concern is that well meant advice should not be substituted for general support and sharing one's own personal experience. I am bothered by threads that encourage members to try a certain medication or discontinue another one because it didn't work for a member. Please this is not an overall judgement on any one or any moderator. Medication issues and advice by anyone other than a experienced professional can be dangerous. Just concerned. Is there a doctor on board here or are we all just a general support for one another? What exactly is the moderation? Best regards Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
