An Open letter to the Diabetes Connect Administration and Members
Lately there have been many threads that have gotten way out of control for many reasons. Most are started with complete disregard for the feelings of our large family here. There is no faster way to stir the feelings of people then come into the room shouting and screaming. When a poster thinks they are the only one here to be depressed and mad at the world, said poster should think again. At one time or another we all reach that point with the many thing going on in our lives, be it Diabetes, other health concerns for us and our family, money woes or personal family problems
We are all here to learn from and if we can help each other through the trials and tribulations of this thing we call Diabetes. The book says there are several types of Diabetes, but to me it makes little difference in us, we all have to answer to the meter to plan our days.
We do not need any member acting as a self appointed moderator trying to police the conversations I know I can be sharp tonged and insulting in some of my come backs but only when it was asked for. I have made many friends here, and one very special friend that I will always thank DC for. If anyone of my friends wants me to change I will try but not totally
We wonder why there are so many one time posters here, my personal thoughts are they are bombarded with follow requests before they get a chance to know anyone. I realize that some of you do it to make the new here feel at home, but from a shy person's prospective give them a little room to ask or find what they are looking for.
The member whom has been coming in after the dust has settled a posting as Anonymous and stirring everything back up by arguing with him/her self does no good at all but make their self a fool.
R ember there will always be as many opinions on any given idea as there are active members posted, and if it starts to bet out of hand its the administrators that should come in and find a common ground in the thread or lock it down. Try to post the way you want to be treated and you should be treated the same way. When it comes to giving advise no one answer is the best answer but a mixing of all answers will give something that will work for most of us.
Take care My Friends we are all in the same boat for the cruise, try not to rock the boat too hard, it might be you whom falls overboard…
