    I think you have been here for years and haven't made any strange posts... Maybe we need a deciding board?
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    I actually had thought we had a requirement of a certain number of posts? I guess I got it mixed up.

    But Quimby, I would think if some got pulled, it would be the single digit posters. I know we have a lot of people who come for a while, then get caught up with their lives and come back. I would think once you were here and posting enough to be accepted, you could be here for good.

    I am sure you can make 20 post quickly as that I can't believe you have only 80 posts.

    Wise, I agree that we need to be very careful on admitting women too quickly to this group. I hadn't expressed my opinion on this before, but I am still reeling from the whole Mark/Annie betrayal, and at the very least I would like new members to have to stick with the group for awhile before being granted access to this particular group. I also am worried that curious, possibly predatory males can simply say they are women and ask for entry, which is nothing any of want to deal with. We have learned a very tough lesson in internet fraud this last week, and I am feeling an increased need for knowing someone is who they say they are. Thank you.

    Thanks!

    Certain amount of posts sounds good.


    But at the very, very least fill out your profile.
    Eileen you're right no way to know if they're a woman if they don' even fill out their profile.

    Sorry I'm not meaning to pic on you personally.
    You probably didn't know what was expected before entering.

    Maybe the decision should be left to the womens forum, like a poll or something posted for 24 hours and then deleted once the decision is made that way if the vote was yes but there were some who said no the person granted access won't see who said no and have bad feelings towards that person.

    As I recall, the minimum amount of posts was originally 30 and or contact with a female moderator for approval.

    Our desire is not to intentionally exclude anyone except MALE members. If you have a female medical issue, you can always contact one of the female nurses like KLD. The Women's Forum is not a place for a popularity vote to allow admission--voting to admit a member could be too divisive.
    I do understand however your suggestion MSWIFE and don't think you were trying to keep anyone out, you just want some assusrances.

    If you are Looking for a safe forum to post in, Life and new SCI as well as Care are good places to start.

    Wise, perhaps we can visit this in the Moderators Forum and come up with clear guidelines. Once they are decided upon, we can post them here in a sticky.
    Every day I wake up is a good one

    Cheesecake - thank you for understanding. No I was not trying to keep any one in particular out. Just merely offering a suggestion.
