I think we have all been attacked or ignored at some time or other on this site. I know when I was first on here I was ignored, then attacked, and at one point I almost left the board. But the majority of people are great and the information and discussions are worth while.

I am with the others when they say to start something with "I have heard, I was told, Could you tell me, Does anyone know..." All of those are a good way to start especially when it applies to things that may or may not contain gluten.

I recently found this site via surfing for Johnny Rivers links. I couldn't figure out why his name was associated with Gluten free until I read it was a post from Dingogirl about him.

I think there are a lot of people who post on this board with really dumb ideas or really stupid things they are planning to do, but come on. How many of us, before a diagnosis, would have thought cutting out a major food group would be a good idea?

People come up with the most ridiculous ways to treat their ailments, but if they work, what's the problem? They only things I take issue with are when people insist that their potentially harmful viewpoint is the only one. If you choose to avoid all products with msg, that is different from saying that everyone needs to avoid all products with msg. (OK, that's not potentially harmful, but it would be very restrictive.)

Also, this board is very cliquish (although there are also many people who are not). I agree that camaraderie is essential to healing, but it would be nice if new people showing up weren't wondering how long they have to be a member before they are allowed to get a little red title at the bottom of their name.

Okay, it's gone (red title)

I'd hate to think it alienated anyone :( (newbie or otherwise) and to be honest I forgot all about it.

Actually after I posted that I kinda looked and realized that most people had removed them already.

The titles were kind of cute, but I remember at least one topic asking what "Rachelville" was.

I guess you could just change them to "self proclaimed".

What's interesting in all this is how insidious cliques can be. I have felt *slightly* left out of the board because I'm not a part of it. I'm not a part of most PMing things that go on, the friending thing that started when our board got upgraded, and lots of the other clique-y things. But that's because I don't participate in it myself. (Ok, it could be my personality too, but I don't even get a "nice try" because I don't really 'try'. :P:lol::P) You can't get into a social circle without time and effort, and some of us choose not to spend our time that way. (I never could get into the 'in crowd' anyway. :P)

Shut, I spent a great deal of time in high school trying to get into the in-crowd. As I expect that most of us did. I arrived as a Senior. I looked around and said to myself, "for this?"

It sent me on a new road when I went to college, just to be myself. I have some life long friends.

I definitely just laughed out loud to that one. Its a good thing no one was around :D You are too funny. Everytime I see the quote in your signature from your ex-allergist, I have to smile.

Tiffany: no matter if you are part of a clique or cool or any of those things, I think what is important --- to me --- is the time, effort, and thoughtful answers that you provide. You have a wealth of information about Celiac - and other topics - that is so appreciated by me and many others. Plus, you are continually a trustworthy poster, which is so important. The board benefits from you, and you benefit from it in the way you choose, and I think that's all that matters. (by the way: You know you are a Celiac when you think someone is REALLY cool because they know so much about Celiac) B)

That is very true! And there's NOTHING wrong with it! You are you and those that like and respect you will continue to do so regardless; those that don't, eh, it's their problem.

I'm really unhappy with the whole star "Rate Me" thing. I think it's being used as a way of being mean. And there's no clarification on what we're supposed to rate people on. Like I said before, I feel like it's ratemyprofessor.com and pretty soon people will bea able to click on a little chili pepper next to your name to show whether you're hot or not. :blink::P :P :ph34r:
