    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Ads / SPAM

    Dear WebMD:

    I do not enjoy seeing ads and SPAM in any area of the internet. I have an ad blocker and a SPAM filter in my browser so I do not have to see such things. Yes, I come to a message board I have been active in for over a decade only to daily find ads and SPAM not authorized by WebMD and against the Terms Of Use. We members report them, but they are not being deleted as quickly as they were when these communities had moderators.

    Please, for all our enjoyment and continued participation, do something about the ads and SPAM that is daily appearing in many communities. If you can not implement effective filters, then please be more vigilant in you manual processes of monitoring the boards and deleting these posts.

    Thank you very much.
