Forum Pet Peeves

Does any one have any forum pet peeves? My biggest pet peeve is when people post their topics in blatantly wrong sections.While it can be hard to figure out if something goes in post dx or coping with, since they can overlap. I'm talking about posts that are asking for recipes that are posted to the coping section. It's really not that hard to scroll to recipes and post it there. Yes the mods do move posts like that to the correct section. But that only bugs me a little less because the moved label attracts my attention.

Does anyone else have any forum pet peeves?

Are the limited to this forum or all forums?

If I catch a recipe in the Tech section shortly after posting, I don't put the moved thing on it. I find those irritating, too. If its been there awhile & is getting answers, then I feel I have to explain where it went to the folks following it.

Here's my pet peeve: Mini-trolls. People who sign up for 5 minutes to post something , usually in an old thread, that is negative and usually blatantly false. They never come back but have tried to start trouble.

I don't do alot of other forums but my son says these mini-trolls appear even on the Ford Ranger forum. They are happily discussing the best way to apply stripe stickers around a curved part and some idiot will post that some brand of oil is bad. :angry:

At least mini trolls go away quick. In another forum I belong to we had a consistent troll for several months. But it is an unmoderated forum so it's harder for action to be taken. But, they were banned then found a new way in... It was actually quite sad because the forum lost several members and it really scared off the new members. Since the troll was mean and insulting.

Every now and then some weirdness happens and everyone is just crabby.

It is hard to communicate without facial expressions, tone of voice, and hand gestures. Sorry I grew up in an Italian neighborhood, something you just have to use your hands. ;)

One of the things that bothers me about all forums is when young people use texting jargon. You know, things like "R U going 2 B home?" Instead of "Are you going to be home?" It takes a fraction of a second longer to type out the real words, and it is SO much easier to read!

Ohhhh . . . that's a good one!! Having issues with that here at home. One of my kids will say "BRB" as they leave the room and I yell after them . . . "USE YOUR WORDS" like I'm talking to a 2-year old <_<

The only pet peeve I really have is the folks that come on one time to revive a tread that may be years old about an unsafe item and post that it is in reality safe for us for because it tests out at such and such a level so it doesn't matter that they use barley etc in it.

Or the ones that announce they have found some 'miracle' cure that will allow us to eat whatever we want if we take some companies preperation.

I guess technically that is two peeves.

I don't like how the forums on this board don't have "stickies" at the top with the most commonly asked questions. This is something I see used in most other forums and is EXTREMELY helpful. It helps all users, especially new ones, quickly find information, and avoids a million people asking the same question over and over instead of assisting them in benefiting from previous conversations about the same topic.

Threads that start with the declaration "fill in the blank" is NOT gluton free, with no more justification than "it had to be because everything else I ate yesterday was safe". And the product clearly contains no gluten ingredients.

Another one. "The person on the phone wouldn't confirm it was gluten-free". So it must have gluten, right?

best regards, lm

YES!!!!!!!! I asked one mod about this, but she did not know why there wasn't a FAQ section. It would save a lot of time.

I feel like I am a less effective communicator without my hands (I tried sitting on them while teaching an Interpersonal Communication class to prove my point to the students) It was really difficult and frustrating.

Without hand gestures, facial expressions and voice inflection, we are often misunderstood. :rolleyes:

That is one of my irritants as well.

And finally, people who start new topics about the fries at McDonalds. As if the hundred or so we already have had since 2006 haven't addressed all the questions. :(:angry: :angry:

    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.  
    • Exactly what are your allergy symptoms?  Were they IgG or IgE?  Allergy testing as a whole is not super accurate -- especially the IgG.  Were you on any H1 or H2 antihistamines for the last five days  when you were tested?   As far as celiac testing, four days without consuming gluten probably would not impact testing.  
    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way.
