Reporting An Abuser

10 posts in this topic

We have a feature here on the board where you can report a person who abuses the board. Maybe they might post something offensive etc. HOWEVER, lately I have gotten several emails reguarding posts that are NOT offensive at all. I am not sure why they are being reported!! Possibly people are hitting the wrong buttons?!? So what I am asking is PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be careful of what you are doing. I have to read each and everyone of those, and they have been nothing!! So thanks and be careful in your posts!

When a person hits the "report" button, does it automatically send you a notification of which post the user was reading at the time, or does the person actually have to type in a complaint and send it off? I'm just curious; I know that I DID accidentally hit the "report" button once, and I apologize if it created a nuisance for the moderators. I'll certainly try to be more careful in the future!

If you click the "Report" button on a post it will automatically send the post to a moderator for review. It is a formal complaint against that post, and you are claiming that it has violated the board's rules at:

Take care,

Would it be possible to change the layout so the report button is in its own place, some distance away from all other buttons? This would probably take care of the accidental reporting problem. I'm not saying that it has to be done immediately, but if you decide to fiddle with the appearance of the board at all, that would be a good time to address this.

I have limited control of this, so I suppose the answer is no...sorry!

This has happened a few times recently and I just wanted to bring this string of posts back up so people would see that they need to be careful.

Please do not hit the REPORT button unless there is something in the post that is offensive or someone is abusing the board. Thank you.

God bless,

Mariann :)

    • You are right, the tests could be invalid.   All the celiac tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.  It is up to you to decide if you want to go gluten free.  You can do it.  Believe me, I know.  Hubby is not officially diagnosed.  He went gluten-free 15 years ago, based on the rather poor advice from my allergist and his GP.  It worked though.  But he would be the first to tell you that I have had way more support in terms of family and medical.    We think he has it.  Both of our families are riddled with autoimmine disorders.  I am the first to be diagnosed.   My Aunt went gluten free per the advice of her Chiropractor.  Her other doctors never suspected celiac disease.  The diet obviously worked for her.  Her daughter (my cousin) is a nurse.  She had an endoscopy but they did not check for celiac disease.  She chose to go gluten-free too since it worked for her mom.  Both will not do a gluten challenge.  However, my diagnosis has helped them get proper medical treatment.  My Aunt is very active in a celiac support group.    Now everyone in my family knows about celiac disease.  My own niece was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but her GI did test and will continue to test her for celiac disease.  You can develop additional autoimmune disorders at any time.   So far, a few other members have been tested.  No one else had had a celiac disease diagnosis yet.  Time will tell.  If I can save someone from the misery of struggling to get a diagnosis, then I can feel good.   Now, an official diagnosis will help you adhere to the diet .  You can get follow-up care.  Get checked for other things like SIBO, H. Pylori and cancer.  But ultimately, it is up to you.   Whatever you decided to do, please consider a family health history chart.  You might someday help a grandchild.   The stool tests?  In all my research, leading celiac experts do not recommend them.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/ gene testing?  Some 30% of the poulation carries the celiac genes.  It just tells you that you have the chance to develop celiac disease.  It can not diagnose you.    
    • The procedure is a breeze. You will go in, be sedated and go to sleep for a short nap and then it's over. Some people will have a bit of a sore throat but not everyone does. For me the hardest part of the endo was not being able to drink coffee when I got up. You seem to have been back on gluten for long enough to have the test but as CLady said there is a good chance your blood work may be negative. In your case you may want to continue eating gluten after the biopsy at least until you get your blood results. If they are negative consider going a bit longer and getting them redone.
    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
