There are times in life that people will say something that really irks you and without thinking it out you respond by saying something that is hurtful …well, that’s not a good idea. We want Connect to be a SAFE place, a WELCOMING place, and a LEARNING from each other place. A place where people from all walks of life can meet and share common health concerns. By sharing, we can help each other.
Here’s the deal – it does not help anyone to banter back and forth with another Connect member that you feel has said something out of bounds. It only brings others into the tiff and makes everyone feel bad. We know you may mean well and want to help BUT if someone says something way out of line, send the Groups Moderator a private message or send the person you are having a difference of opinion with a private message. The point being – keep an argument out of the discussions – it will not help anyone and only increases the hurt on both sides.
To send a Connect member a private message, click on the @connectname and then click the Send Private Message link under their name. Please be respectful!
P.S. – Sometimes if everyone ignores a comment that bothers them, it will go away on it’s own. I’m a firm believer in the Toastmasters meeting moto – “keep sex, religion and politics out of the discussion”.
Thanks to each of you for helping keep Connect a safe place to share, learn, and get answers.
Hoping for a pain free day for each of you…and an answer that helps you with your health concerns.
