My apologies to the FOrum

barbar - December 13

I MUST APOLOGIZE TO THE FORUM FOR MY PART IN THE CURRENT DISORDER. I am especially tired of the Larry/Kathy/Helen issues. I'm the one who actually took her advice and sought the solutions she recommended only to find a number of very problematic issues with them. I thought reasoning with him /her would help but you all see what that led to. I surely must apologize to you all for having been part of it. Reasoning doesn't work; evidence doesn't work; pleading doesn't work. We've all made it clear we don't want to be guinea pigs; that our individual needs, medical financial, and personal are very different and must be taken into consideration; that we have the right to disagree; and that sometimes we want to be left alone. None of that has been effective. Let's just him/her go and focus on other things. It's Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa time. Let's celebrate the season and make this a new beginning for us. Most sincerely and lovingly, Barbar

Barbar, you have nothing to apologize for. Anyone can see you were upset. Contrary to what some of you may think I don't even "get" what Larry was talking about. I was never defending his "ideas" I was just trying to make sure EVERYONE had the same right to post their opinion! I would love to tell you all about how well I have been doing since I started working Dr Brady's program, but I know better.... and that's sad, but anyway. At the risk of being attacked yet again (Teresa...) I would like to say one thing and please don't take this the wrong way.... more than HALF of the main page is FULL of this Larry/Kathy BS. Is it necessary to start up new threads over and over again all about the SAME THING? If you want this problem to go away- constantly focusing on it surely won't do the trick! I count 17 topics ONLY about this subject in the top 20 subjects alone on the main page!!! That is just insane! Can't you see that there are newbies coming here asking legitimate questions half a page down that are not getting the time, care or answers that they deserve because the WHOLE page is covered with this crap? For goodness sakes, take a break already.

CArrieLee, We are on the march!!! Let's get to the newbies and their concerns. They may have good information and tips for us all!

Bumping old posts is not the answer either. That is one person trying to control the site for their own agenda. Just don't respond to posts you don't like. Type a legitimate response to those you do (and "bump" is not a legitimate response, imho) and let things fall where they may.

 

CarrieLee - December 13

Actually, bumping the posts is what most sites with this problem will do! My ONLY agenda is to allow the NEWBIES to get some questions answered and the attention they deserve! Do you guys even notice that NONE of these people are even coming back anymore!

I think what you are doing is admirable but unless you are the site moderator, it is inappropriate. If you do not own or moderate this site it is unfair to others to use it to promote a personal agenda. I know that you are trying to refocus the forum, but you may be arbitrarily burying things that you find unimportant but others find important. If there is something that has been lost and you have an answer to their questions, by all means answer it. You could also encourage others to look through old posts to see if they can help some of those whose problems got buried. I think Barbar is sort of doing that. I just say what you guys are doing isn't really that much different than what others were doing when you felt they were promoting their own agendas.

 

CarrieLee - December 13

JJ1 you say that : *it is unfair to others to use it to promote a personal agenda*.... what agenda would that be exactly... I guess its more fair to allow others to promote agendas that encourage fighting and putting people down. Since I bumped some threads up, I have gotten 3 RESPONSES from NEW people whose messages were pretty much buried an hour ago. Sorry.... I just cant say I feel bad about that. I know you were in the midst of fighting it out disproving Harry, Larry, Helen, Whatever, Whoever... sorry to bump all that NEGATIVITY down.... but Im sure you can still find your *Hoax* posts if you really try. Although we really wish you wouldnt.

 

Jeri - December 13

Carrie and Barbar I think its wonderful! u bumped my post (LOL) asking everyone to stop fighting but this is a much better + more effective idea! thanks for pulling up some of my questions. I wasnt getting much response b4. u guys rock!

 

JJ1 - December 13

I am not interested in fighting and I was just trying to make a point. There is nothing of mine that was buried that I feel personally upset about you arbitrarily burying, but I can only speak for myself. I think the people who have been here for some time are equally as important as new posters so to arbitrarily pick and choose posts by new folks does show a bias. There has been some very informative stuff posted by old timers (Larry, Lynn, Barbar, to name a few) but because in-fighting started you personally chose to bury that information and I am just challenging your right to personally decide what is imporatant to everyone posting here and what is not.

 

CarrieLee - December 13

No problem Jeri! Im glad you are getting the attention your queries deserved! And welcome to the forum by the way :)

 

CarrieLee - December 13

OK JJ1... You Win!!! I am a terrible terrible person.... you can pull all that junk back up and continue fighting with Larry.

 

barbar - December 13

CArrieLee, Why are you starting up a new fight here, on this post, which was an apology for the old fighting and move to roll in the cheer of the season? Come on, it's Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa. Let's relax and enjoy the season and each other!

 

Jeri - December 13

I am not fighting, JJ just kept chewing me out. Why can everyone else defend themselves but when I try... to I get jumped on. Geez!

 

CarrieLee - December 13

I dont think she is mad at you. Its me that they are mad at.

 

JJ1 - December 13

I apologize for making a big deal out of this. I was just frustrated because I was trying to read some new postings and as soon as I finished one, what WAS supposed to be the next one got lost two pages back. I know you were just trying to bury the fighting, and that is not necessarily a bad thing, but by pulling up old posts with a "bump" you were burying other things as well. ............................ Jeri, I have only responded to you re. the chest pains today and I am very sorry if you perceived that to be "chewing you out". It was not my intention. I have had similar pains. They are always worrisome, even when I went to the doc and found out everything is supposedly ok. I feel your pain cuz I have it, too.

 

CarrieLee - December 13

I guess I will always be seen as a bad person around here. Sorry for whatever I did wrong this time. I was trying to help since apparently the moderators of this forum dont care how we treat each other. No matter what I do you guys revile me. So much for good intentions. Take care all.
