Do you know that details your private life and/or ilness is Public knowledge? - PARTICULARLY ON THIS BOARD.
Some time ago I left messages on the 'cluster headache' message board detailing my medical condition.
Some time later I went to Yahoo and typed in my name 'anthony chappell' and was horrified to see that of some 5,000 'web sites found' my personal and private details were at the TOP of the list!- IT CAME FROM THIS BOARD !!!
Is it the same with you?
Somehow, 'cluster headache' have/ or by accident are putting highly confidential medical disclosures about people on 'Yahoo' and - even worse - you appear at the TOP of a search on your name.
It means that anybody who wants to 'check you out' can discover at least one of your medical ailments.
That must be a violation of our rights.
For what it's worth, I am trying to find out what is going on - and see if it can be stopped.
Please let me know what you think - and if you are angry about this public disclosure of a part of your confidential and private medical details please contact me as a small group of enraged 'cluster headache' sufferers are furious about it and are helping me.
This needs a TEAM.
You can always call me on (UK) +44 1373 831439 or from the UK 01373 831444
My apologies for bringing this to your attention.
If you go to Yahoo and type in your name you may well see for yourself.
