Unacceptable use of this website

The administrators and myself are receiving an increasing number of complaints about people using blogs for self-promotion or advertising.

This form of usage is not acceptable. Action taken will be in the form of warnings or, if we deem it necessary, a straightforward ban. Persistent use beyond that point, such as registering again under different names, may be subject to further action.

It would be a pity if the actions of a tiny minority had consequences for the entire community.

This website is provided for patients to exchange views and opinions. It is not to provide free advertising.

I am in 100% agreement. Thank you for your diligence.

I totally agree especially those claiming "cures" giving false hope to those who do not fully understand the complexity of the syndrome.

I use 'syndrome' as I feel it better covers Parkinson's as a medical term as opposed to 'disease'.

i agee - syndrome is a much better and more disripitive way of descibing it

I quite agree. There are quite a number of these advertisements creeping in. Thanks Drew. I also hate the word disease and couldn't think of an alternative. I will use 'syndrome' in future.

Helpful hints and suggestions from other patients are great. When someone is profiting from their own post should not be allowed. Let them buy an ad on FB. :)

I need an editor :D (delete 'when' 'is')

Thank you for your continued effort to keep this an honest blog site. It's nice not to be "targeted" by advertisements.

I agree too, it is very recent that I have come back to a blog, I gave up for a year because of targeting and dare I say bullying of others
