I personally do not agree with many of Daniel's views as expressed here & I realize that his forcefully-worded statements are upsetting to several posters. Nevertheless, a great deal of good has come out of the discussion so far & we don't like to censor free speech if it can be avoided.
That said, I urge Daniel to be aware of the fact that quite a number of posters have come out & frankly stated that they take medications to help them cope with cult-related trauma or other physical illnesses. They are dependent upon them for their mental & physical well-being so this is not a mere academic discussion for them, but serious, personal concerns which they have given a great deal of thought & research to.
Although you have the right to hold strong & controversial views on the subject, I urge you to be sensitive to other readers & word your posts accordingly. If you truly wish to help others with health advice, take a tip from how Porceleindoll presents natural health remedies on NDN & on this board.
In closing, I would like to remind you of this board's rules:
Insensitivity will not be tolerated. We will make provision for inevitable unintentional misunderstandings and marked differences of opinion that can arise from interaction between posters, but deliberate and repeated hurtful or abrasive behavior will result in being banned.
Lively discussions are encouraged as long as a certain level of civility is maintained. Please donít make it personal.
