It's obvious that migraineurs and others visiting here don't read the front page, about this being a cluster headaches site.
It's also pretty obvious that they wouldn't read anything if you actually put it at the top of the message board.
Could you not put a starting message in the textbox where we put our messages, which disappears when you start typing. Then there is no conceivable reason why someone could claim they didn't know.
"Before posting here for the first time, please take the cluster quiz to see whether you actually have ch or not. Anyone who does will be more than welcome, but if you obviously do not, please do not expect too much tolerance of your inability to read this simple message. It is also a good idea to read through the site a little before plunging in.
In case anyone thinks that's rude, the reasoning could be explained by the side of the box.
