I know that many people have had questions on how the Moderator team and myself monitor and handle different situations.
Let me first start off by saying that all of us are human and we use our best judgment. In addition, we always try to run a situation amongst ourselves to have a agreement on what actions should be taken.

Do we make mistakes from time to time? Sure

At times do we show favoritism to one member vs another member? Yes, that can happen, but its more in the fact that we may know one member more and have a track record, which helps in making decisions

If you question some of our decisions, by all means you can contact us and we would be glad to provide some information.
However, we will not do this out on the public forums. This is something that will be handled by personal messages only.

Spine-Health is growing and growing. When I joined the member list was around 3,000, today we have over 11,000 members. It was becoming more and more difficult for the moderator team to handle everything.

That was the driving force in putting together the Authority team. That group has proven their value to Spine-Health and also they always demonstrate fairness in their views.

Last, but I am not sure how many people really know.

Myself, all the Moderators, the Authority team are volunteers. We do this because we believe in Spine-Health and we understand the value it has. We have also seen how this site has helped so many people.

Many times I have received a message or read a post that says this new Spine-Health is NOT the same as the old Spine-Health. Yes, that is true. With so many people registered from many different countries, there is bound to be disagreements. There is no problem in that, but we all need to remember that Spine-Health is here for all of us and it is a valuable tool for all spine patients.

Bottom line, we all love Spine-Health and are willing to do what is necessary to keep it the best online site for spinal related problems.

Thank you
