I thought this might be a good message board to join, but given the personal attacks I am out of here! I give my answer to a question and get called Idiotic!

Hello… I just joined and you were the first one to respond to what I wrote!! I found what you had to say, to be very helpful and I saw you as a caring and loving dad towards your son and all he was going through… Actually your comments touched me, and your son is extremly lucky to have some-one like you in his corner… Don't listen to other people comments, you can only be you and you were only trying to express yourself, and not every-one is going to always like what we have to say. However, people need to remember, they need to agree to disagree some-times, that is only fair… Lisa KEEP UP YOUR LOVING HEART FOR YOUR SON, CHIN UP, YOUR A GREAT, LOVING DAD WHOM ONLY WANTS THE BEST FOR HIS SON, AND FAMILY TO BOOT!!! Lisa Smile…

Lets face it we are all here to help one another, not to attack people…we get help from the people on this site by asking questions, we may not like their answers but we are asking for advice from them..everyone has been very helpful to me because of my own diabetes, but my young son was recently diagnosed I recieved so much support from everyone and I truly appreciate everyone…

Neil,I have debated with myself as to wether I should say anything here..and I decided to follow my heart and say what I find there.
My sincere apologies if you felt I was calling you Idiotic..I was not,and it was never my intention for you to take my words in that manner.I honestly felt your re-buff of my discussion response was not constructive, and I felt hurt by it…so, I let my emotions get the better of me..and for this I apologize, I usually have a cooler head and try to see what people say as their opinion and leave it at that.
Please do not leave because of some silly this is a wonderful site,with a great deal of useful info and alot of Helpful,Loving,Careing,People!! I am only one small voice here,and really not worth your leaving over..again my sincere apologies.

I'm sorry that you're upset by what has happened. Online forums do tend to run into trouble from time to time because of misunderstandings. I think if you'll stick around a little longer, you'll see that this really a great place with many, many helpful people.

We do our best to monitor the site and keep any threads from becoming too heated or offensive.

So, of course, you have the freedom to leave if that's what you feel is best. But please realize that we do try out best to make everyone feel welcome.

I just followed the your threads and answers and found the thread you are refering to. Im sorry you feel you have to leave. You were not called an idiot. Your suggestiong that age has no bearing on treatment was called idiotic.
Doesnt matter that an 81 year old man won an iron man marathon.
DOnt take this wrong, but you attacked first. of course, that is just what we can see since you have since edited your original responses about 30 minutes ago. We are all human. We are all expressing our opinion. Its just our opinion. DOesnt make it right nor wrong. Its all worth less than 2 cents. it doesnt cost anyone anyting to listen to it, so that is what its worth. You are human, have a mind. you can accept to read it and accept it or not accept it. We will be sorry to loose you.
