We have recently received some allegations of various things being sent through private messages on HealthUnlocked.
Sending messages containing spam
Sending abusive messages
‘Naming and shaming’ other forum users, for example discussing other forum users in an identifiable manner, whether their name is specifically mentioned or not
Giving medical advice
Our intention has always been for HealthUnlocked to be a safe place, for people to speak freely about their condition with other like-minded and sympathetic forum users. It would be very sad if anyone is receiving upsetting private messages and we hope this reassures you that you can do something about it if this happens to you.
