    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

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    Please be careful about such comments here. Keep in mind that half the country voted one way or the other and to speak so generally or negatively about those who chose to vote differently than you for their own valid reasons is unnecessary.

    Wait, people shouldn't be able to come on a public forum and speak their minds about last night's vote or about a politician because it's "unnecessary"? Interesting.......

    OTW,

    I see it more as this being a support forum, and that a political discussion can be "heated" and not considered supportive. To me DDT's statement was more of a reflection of frustrations and not about the election... hence why I put, I agree...

    Hugs Dear Woman...

    MandyCake replied to Caprice_WebMD_Staff's response:
    Ummm... my perception and comment had nothing to do with voting... I was agree as a generalization to frustrations of all things here in America... Perhaps I should have elaborated?...

    Sorry Caprice and to anyone else who may have seen this differently.

    Hugs and LOVE to you all...

    When I read this I had to smile at the "Dumb bunnies" because all that popped into my head was Trix are for kids and then I wanted a bowl of Trix... (which I do not have here)...

    When I read caprice's response I thought she was referring to the entire thread that DD started. And maybe she was but I can see now how she might have been speaking to the anonymous response though I do think "dumb bunnies" is pretty mild name calling and I laughed too because I'm pretty sure I know who posted it and that she meant no harm in it. The fact of the matter is that entirely too many Americans, regardless of who they voted for, go to the polling booths extremely uninformed. But what can you do about it?

    Well if it doesn't belong here then the thread should just be deleted rather than publicly reprimanding (and probably really upsetting) an individual poster for staring her opinion on the matter.

    But frankly to me, any moderation on this thread takes a political tone, including the initial moderation. Which is why I commented on it to begin with.

    Allow me to clear this up before blows are exchanged.

    First off that post is missing the authors name. He's like that. He just thinks you all will know him via his vileness. Alex wrote that.

    Secondly to further clarify, He is 15 years old and doesn't care one nano about the presidential race. That comment is referring to the passing of two states bill legalizing marijuana.

    Thirdly I hate politic in general so this is as much into this conversation as I want to go.

    Kate_Te replied to off_the_wall's response:
    I agree with Caprice that this isn't really the place for political conversations. People can be fully informed on the issues & for their own beliefs, vote one way or the other. My brother & I are on opposite sides of the political fence, but we are both news junkies - we just read it differently & have different priorities. Both men running for President love this country & believe their path is the right one for the country.

    The country is very split (50/50) on the right path for us to take. Just because you don't agree with the other side, doesn't mean they don't know, care & vehemently believe in their principles.

    On one point I totally agree with the sentiment of Anon. Too many people vote who do not pay attention to the issues & vote like it's an episode of America's got talent or something; because they vote who they think is prettier or has the best hair, or some other stupid reason.

    Sorry, just my 2 cents.
