We reserve the right to remove any material posted on this board for any reason, or for no reason at all, at our sole discretion, and without explanation. This includes material that we consider to be disruptive, abusive, offensive, illegal, vulgar, tasteless, or pornographic; or any other material.

How do I participate in the Support Group? Do I have to register or log-in?
No registration is necessary for reading or posting. And, your post will appear as soon as you click the Post Message button. (Unlike other support groups, your posts don’t have to be approved before they appear.)
If you wish to add a reply to someone’s existing topic, go to that topic and click on the Reply tab at the top right or bottom right of the page.
If you want to start your own topic, go to the main page of our Support Group and click on the New Topic tab at the top right or bottom right of the main page. You’ll be taken to another page where you will enter your New Topic in the Message Subject line.
Whether you want to add a reply to an existing topic or start a new one, the remaining entries are the same on both forms.
- In the Your Name space, we recommend that you use an easy-to-remember alias instead of your real name. This will help protect your privacy. In fact most of our posters use aliases.
- Even though there is a space for your email address, that’s entirely optional. About half of our posters add their email address. If you are concerned about your privacy, I would leave the email address space blank.
If you add a reply to an existing topic, your reply will appear as the last item on the last page of the topic. However, if you start a New Topic, it will appear in the middle the front page of the board. TIP: Most posters prefer to start a New Topic. That way, everyone’s replies to your topic are in one convenient place.
