I'm really glad that we have you here, otherwise we would run blindly into the huge amount of spammers and salesmen in here and would buy just anything they want us to. You know, the average TIMS user is so unfamiliar with forums and internet communication that they just can't distinguish advertising from user posts. I for one asked myself again and again why the newest topics in the left column always stay the same while the ones to the right are constantly changing. Recently I found out that those on the left are google ads, whatever this may be. In addition, I think your guidance is really really needed because most TIMS users are dumb enough to not educate themselves before making any decision and do whatever they are told, and the doctors who post here tell people to go for treatment so constantly! I read this so often that I now want a liberation treatment myself despite the fact that I don't have MS!
And it's such a stupid thing to take the opportunity to talk to specialists when they show up here. Because it might happen that your questions are answered. This just takes the fun out of it, riddling over questions with other patients only and guessing about second-hand information is so much more fun!
So again thank you very much for chaperoning us!

Will the doctors on board ignore these posts??
I can ignore them but I really worry about the possibility of the doctors leaving the board because of posts like scorpion's
I mean the initial post is very disrespectful toward those doctors.
I think scorpion makes a good point and it's one that I already tried to make.thisisms Mission Statement wrote:This is MS is an unbiased, unaffiliated site dedicated to eradicating Multiple Sclerosis.
No one is afraid of you. Post on, but realize that what cah jokingly points out is truth...many people on this board are interested in exploring all of the research going on in MS--not just the pharmacological studies sponsored by MS Societies

Please, continue to be a skeptic. Your point about doctors appearing on this forum has been a bit disconcerting to a few of us...but many people on here like the back and forth with real live experts (not just pretend ones like you and me) so let's live and let live. And your bark is worse than your bite...or sting, or whatever.
