If you wondering what happened to my earlier post re Dr Prasad, a post that you are now unable to access, stay cool and let me explain. It was there for a few days and there were lots of interesting discussions, comments and useful feedback but on May 7 (Saturday), Vesa from the admin emailed to me to say that she is removing the post following the complaint of someone who reported that it was an “advert” and that I had sub-posted a negative remark, both of which she deemed as sufficient reasons to remove the ENTIRE blog.
I wrote at length to Vesa to explain that the Dr Prasad post was made in response to some members of the HU community who specifically asked for details about Dr Prasad's clinic - address, website address, phone no. etc., which first appeared in the post of Rahim1958. So it was not really an advert as there was, on my part, no express attempt to promote this Dr Prasad beyond merely providing basic info on contact details. Plus I have no previous contact or knowledge of this gentleman.
My only lead was Rahim1958’s positive feedback following his enrolment and doing the therapy course of Dr Prasad. Rahim’s feedback would have easily yielded very interesting and lively discussion in the HU forum and offered another healing pathway for those who are perhaps not so attracted to, say, the incessant and overinflated A D V E R T I S I N G O F L C H F and what not, or those may have found that this or that didn’t work and/or have little or no BG-lowering effects.
So far, Vesa has not responded - this may be a good thing as she may still be considering reinstating the post, or she may not be in the office owing to the weekend break, or whatever. During this time, members of course can write to her and give their honest feedback about the removal of the ENTIRE. I suspect the complainant was Anup because when I retorted, in a subpost, to his constant attack on members postings and subpostings with the obnoxious expletive: “HOGWASH”, I got Vesa’s response email very shortly after submitted this subpost.
I feel Vesa doen’t appear to realize how insulting this word is to Muslims, for a hog is a pig, and to make it worse, we have here the added insult - droppings of a pig? Isn't this cultural, religious intolerance? For me, it is not just politically incorrect, it is also insulting, hurtful and disrespectful. Question: why is admin allowing someone like him to continue ADVERTISING his own personal grievances? Notice that I said I only “suspect” it was Anup – this is my own belief which may be incorrect. But-
you can always ask him yourself, and I also believe he won’t shy away from the telling you the honest-to-God truth too.
In my reply to Vesa, I suggested that the SUBPOST could be removed, if it be deemed negative to her. There is no need to delete the entire post for that would be like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It would be unfair to other members who have contributed to the discussion and deleting all the valuable information relating to Dr Prasad would be sheer waste. Anyway, people themselves can also google up for Dr Prasad and check out his work, program, theory, etc and that the subject will continue to be discussed in posts and subposts. So what’s admin going to do about this. Ban that too?
And let’s not forget that censoring or prohibiting info and literature won’t work generally for the forbidden fruit tastes sweeter – yes, it sounds like a weird and wonderful twist to attempting to suppress info. The more one tries to prevent an “advert” (censored stuff) from reaching the masses, the more and greater attention it will generate plus the tons of advertising publicity it will also reap via other media channels, like some unexpected bonus.
There is no end to human ingenuity when they are thwarted or blocked or their stuff censored, suppressed. So why not leave my run-of-the-mill ‘advert’ alone and let Nature take its course! If HealthUnblocked had not taken the trouble to ADVERTISE itself on the web, would it have attracted drop-bys and get any subscribed members, I wonder?
