Hi skip. I don't think I've ever replied to any of your posts directly - but have read many of them.
I think it is important for everyone (old and new posters) to be aware that absolutely NOONE has ALL the answers for everyone on this forum - and that everyone has the freedom to put their point of veiw across without being judged.
This said, I am very aware of a couple of posters (and I'm not even referring to crapshot and the annoymous poster) - that are trying to take advantage of our vulnerability and need for answers, and are trying to subtly sway people into buying products from commercial web sites. To which I have dediced to monitor in my own way - and warn others of if I feel it warrants it.
If your intentions are genuine (and only you will ever know that) - then do not feel the need to be silenced.
I believe a huge part of the blessing of health is to go on and help others, and if this is what you believe you are doing - why stop now?
