A reminder of LBDA Forum Guidelines
Dear Forum Members,
The LBDA Discussion Forums were established to create a place for the LBD community to gather and share their personal experiences and information relevant to Lewy body dementia. And we are glad that you have all come to this forum, as nobody should have to face LBD alone!
Having said that, all communities, whether physical or virtual, need guidelines or rules, and it seems this is a good time to remind everyone of one of them.
While we encourage forum members to provide each other with emotional support, the forum has been organized to be topic-based and we ask that all posts remain relevant to the topic where they are posted. In order to keep our forums easy for users to find the information they need most, the moderator from time to time may request that certain discussions be taken offline. The moderator may also move threads to different topical areas so that the content is organized efficiently.
Your help in ensuring our community remains a welcoming place for all LBD caregivers is greatly appreciated. To that end, Iâd like to highlight one section of our forum guidelines. The following excerpt comes from our forum guidelines posted at http://community.lbda.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=947
Derogatory messages will not be tolerated. Derogatory messages include, but are not limited to, the following:
Personal insinuations/attacks about other online community members
Complaints about other online community members
Sexually inappropriate comments
Disrespecting the wishes of others
If members are engaging in any of these behaviors, their posts will be deleted. If the behavior continues, the individual may be banned from the community. Decisions around the deletion of posts and removal from the community are at the discretion of the site administrators.
As this thread has veered off topic and some of the posts violate our guidelines, I am locking this thread and deleting select messages.
Thank you for your understanding. Please feel free to email me directly at ataylor @lbda.org with any questions or concerns you may have.
