    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

    After all this time, I just learned why our moderators are no longer with us? They were fired. Fired??? For what??? They were the best!!! They helped keep these boards poppin!!! Since they have been gone, everything has died!!! Sure, a lot of the boards died a slow death, but die they did! Now days, I can't find anyone posting any more, any where?!


    BRING THEM BACK, BRING OUR MODERATORS BACK!!!


    Caprice, Chrissy, every one of them!!! We want them back! Help us revive these boards, bring the moderators back!!! We want these boards more active, and the moderators, bless their hearts, kept it that way!!!


    BRING THEM BACK!!! BRING THEM BACK!!! BRING THEM BACK!!! HEAR MY PLEA, BRING THEM BACK!!!


    HELP ME, IF YOU REMEMBER HOW THESE BOARDS ONCE WERE, HELP ME BRING THEM BACK?!

    One of the modifiers on another board said (a while back) that she was moving on to new responsabilities. So maybe they weren't all fired, perhaps some were simply moved to other jobs.

    Have you noticed that nearly all the experts have gone too?
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    Yes, that's just it!!! Where has everyone gone off to???


    I really miss them! They always came up with a real decent topic to discuss, always!!!


    Sometimes, people do bad things for different reasons? They (Web. M.D.) must have had some reason? We just don't know what it is?!


    I don't know what else to say, and if I keep on, I will just start cussing them out?! So, off to another post!!!


    Take care, fcl, I wish you good fortune in this new year!!!

    Why, that is what I want to know? Why???


    Why would they deliberately sabotage a great sight like Web.M.D.??? For what purpose???


    Where are the BIG CHIEF'S ??? What have they to say for themselves???

    I was here before the big change to, "exchanges"...whatever that means. I thought they were useless. However, the big reason the forums have dwindled is the reorganization that made it difficult to follow threads or specific themes you were interested in.


    I don't fault WebMD in any case. They're following the money, and that isn't us.

    Hi Kram,


    Exchanges are where people can go to exchange ideas, thoughts, feelings, whatever the topic.


    I think you are right?! Its always about the money, never the people!!! Just ask Washington, D.C.?!!!

    kramer1961 replied to dfromspencer's response:
    Calling them exchanges is just marketing bs. Its a discussion website. What they did was change the organization so that more was lumped in together and it was more difficult to find threads you wanted to follow. The moderators never made any difference at all.

    Look at the one entry from a moderator on this "exchange"; "What turns you on". That's a nice subtle way to chum the waters, eh? Is the suedo-moderator really interested in the answer? Why?

    The only people that matter here are the ones asking the questions, and answering them.

    I beg to differ!


    The moderators were like friends to all of us?! When there was a lull, they would fill it with any thing they could come up with, that would stimulate conversation?! The ones that I had intercourse with, always seemed very interested in our answers, and that showed in their responses?!


    We all have our own opinions, and that is great! Its what makes the world go round!


    Take care, Kram!

    Complete madness to fire them. Also I notice very few of the boards have doctors posting to them any more. They were one of the reasons why I joined WebMD.

    dfromspencer replied to jss123's response:
    Yes, that is exactly right!!! I think we all have noticed this? That was a huge no-no, if you ask me??? Its has to be all about the money, I guess? When will enough, be enough? Never!!!


    A poor man with love in his heart, has more wealth than someone alone, that has bajillions!!!
    True dat!!!

    It is actually what separated WebMD from the rest of the sites.

    As much as I like getting responses from other members, sometimes a doctor's response is what you really need.
