I'll admit I'm one of the first ones to tell people to use the search button. But you're right. I'm talking to people in pain that need answers and not search engines. I hope I remember this the next time. But I doubt it. Nonetheless, you're right.
As far as #5? That's the place I think of the newbies. You get someone in here peddling crap... you know. Like Daniel.... And worry that someone will come here for the first time and buy into it. Well, you just don't want that to happen. I found this site about a month ago (maybe a couple of years) because I heard of surgery that will stop my pain for good. I would be cured! And this wasn't spam. This was from someone who believed it. So, I came here and found this place. I asked questions. I got answers. I stuck around and got beaten up. I stayed. I learned that I shouldn't do any surgery and found a family. OK. I didn't find a family. But I learned I shouldn't go through the surgery.
We are a different group now. If we don't answer the bullshit as soon as it's addressed some people will find it and get abused by it. It's not a matter of taking what you need, anymore. It's a matter of giving what you learned too.
OK Melissa. That was my last cup.
