Does the moderator censor every single thing that is written on this site?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Three times recently I have replied to a post only to have it either witheld or deleted. This last time [today] I did not add a link to a website, just  merely mentioned a man's name. We are meant to be helping each other here by passing on helpful information or so I thought.  Is there really somebody watching my every stroke and if there is then I shall not bother in future. Shame  as I have found it helpful.

    Hi Jane,

    As per my reply elsewhere:

    The problem is there are so many users that spam the forums with advertising and product placement we have to keep a check on things otherwise the forums would get swamped with irrelevant posts. The other issue is users who use the forums to repeatedly post the same comments everywhere and are "campaigning" for their beliefs and forcing their opinions on other users. This includes names, products, references to websites without links etc. Sometimes this means genuine comments are sent for moderation but generally they will be approved fairly quickly.

    There is an FAQ section here

    http://patient.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/topics/59133-discussion-forums that explains things and has details about contacting moderators etc. 

    Regards,

    Alan

      Hi Helen. After that scare I had when I'd just returned from Provence when the readings were all over the place, things do seem to have settled down to an average of <125 5="">. That is averaging over a week.  It's usually higher in the mornings [before breakfast] than at bedtime. I chickened out of going back to the dr afraid that she would just raise my dose and I still just hate the idea of being on meds at all. However - needs must I guess if I don't want to succumb to a stroke or heart attack as i was told originally would happen. It's being so cheerful that keeps the practice nurses going!! 

      Really don't like beetroot juice. Love beetroot cooked hot as a vegetable though a la Jamie Oliver.

    I make a point of never mentioning names of people and names of hospitals only in a General way if they do a certain procedure.
