The Taboo Subjects

I believe anyone that has followed any online forum would agree that there are two topics that can raise more than one eyebrow.

Religion & Politics

Not because they arent topics that mean something, its just that you can never get agreement on people's viewpoints.
There really is no wrong or right when it comes to these subjects, its a matter of personal beliefs.
Because of that, we do try our best to avoid these subjects in members posts, signature lines, etc.

This site is open for everyone, its an international site and we accept and want people of all different religions, creeds, races, and more.
So if one sector tries to impose their beliefs on another, we try to stop that in its track.

Today, there are a few members who use their signature line to express their religious beliefs. That should not be done on this site. Its one thing if you sign with a phrase about your beliefs and where you get your strengths from, but its a totally different picture when you get paragraphs of religious beliefs.

I am asking everyone, not to stop what is being done, but instead to think about your audience. Spine-Health reaches out to so many different countries, where there are so many different beliefs regarding religion. So, out of respect for all of these people, what I would ask is understanding in your fellow man. If they walk a different walk then you do, so be it, If they worship something that you dont, thats ok.

Please take this into consideration when you make your posts and when you put words into your signature line.
Everyone's help and understanding of what I have just communicated would be very much appreciated.
