Dear HIV Partners Community Members,
You may have noticed that there have been a number of postings recently from people who are worried about getting HIV after they have taken part in very low risk sexual behaviour, they then do not accept the results of numerous negative HIV tests and keep posting to our community.
When I helped set up this community it was to support people who are living with HIV not the worried well.
Although I tend to take a very hands off approach in how this community develops preferring instead to see it grow organically I do have very strong views about these postings from people who are not living with HIV.
I have been and will continue to remove these postings from the worried well as I feel they are a distraction from the main aims of this community which is to help support each other in living well with HIV.
I know a few of our community have responded to the afore mentioned posts and I give a huge hats off to them for their efforts. I am open to hearing other peoples point of view on my decision to remove these postings and restricting the person who made the post.
I have taken quite some time before posting this message so I have not come to this conclusion lightly but I do feel that my decision is in the best interest of this community as a whole.
If you would prefer to contact me privately on this (or any other topic) please feel free to email me directly using firstname.lastname@example.org
With the kindest regards,
