Every once in a while, several discussions go off topic from what the originator poster intended. No question, that only mentioning the word Opioids brings all sorts of
feelings. Over a year ago, we created the new forum category War on Opioids. Considering the nature of the subject , in general the discussions and comments have been reasonable and well thought out. There are times when someone wants to use that avenue as their personal soapbox to ridicule the government, the medical system and all the horrors they bring.
We always encourage healthy discussions, we do not like heated arguments, one member pitted against another member, stating facts that can not be validated, or just try to create some sort of disruption. It is my responsibility and that of all of my moderators to monitor this to make sure we dont have serious problems. There have been times, when a member stepped way over any respectable boundary, and we removed their access to any Veritas-Health Forums. Sometimes, we even see those same member names on other forums that will allow badgering, bashing, knocking, and taking down any sense of fair play.
That is not Veritas-Health
I think it would be worthwhile for every member to read Veritas Health Terms of Service
As we monitor, I am happy to say that our general member community adheres to the rules and Terms of service. But unfortunately, there are always some they do not.
