I'm not sure who you are talking to, but if it is me, I was talking to DenverCO. (See, my post starts off by addressing that person by name.) I'm sorry if you thought it was you I was talking to. (If it is me you are referring to.) I was answering Denver's comments that were directed to me a couple of posts ago.
You'll get used to that (i.e. several conversations going on at the same time, and not always to everyone on the thread as a group).
I will warn you, though, that there are some people who do come on this website (we have gotten rid of them before, though) who do deliberately try to demean you and hurt your feelings. I'm not one of them, amelia.
Go back and read Denver's words in his/her last post. S/he is the one who is getting a little bit outside of the word "respectful".
There are many people on here who are wonderful. We are a very good group (with the exception of just a person now and again who pops in to try to ruin the site, insult us members, etc.), but that usually doesn't last long.
Please..........nothing was directed to you at all. And we certainly do welcome you to the site. (But again, I will let you know that some conversations under some categories will sometimes get a little "rough". My feelings have been hurt many times.)
Hang in there! And welcome, again!
EDIT: But I will stand up for myself if someone attempts to insult me PERSONALLY, which is what is transpiring between me and DenverCO. I'm not attempting to sway anyone's opinion about Tysabri or Biogen. I'm attempting to prove that I form my OWN opinions from detailed research, etc., not that I'm full of crap, like Denver is boldly saying. That is a "personal" insult to a member of this Board. I would just as quickly stick up for you, also, if someone attempted to attack you "personally".
Just as there are MANY people who LOVE Biogen and Tysabri, there are a couple of us who don't. It's still a little uneven (pro-Biogen's versus anti-Biogen's), but personal "potshots" should not happen here. If it is thought by anyone that I am "lying", than they should keep that "personal" opinion to themselves. That's what I mean by "respect".
Again, nothing is directed to you or to you personally at all.
