Daytime Spine-Health CHATs > better than Daytime

Serials and better than Judge Judy

I really applaud Dave (Metalneck) for starting the initiative into making this happen. CHAT has always been a very important part of Spine-Health. It provides an instant response in talking with other members. Its a chance to un wide, take off your shoes, have some fun and even for just a little bit, forget about your medical conditions.

That is why, when we saw CHAT having problems with Trolls, Spammers and people who just want to be nasty to others, we had to clamp down. I am happy to say, these problems seem to be in the past now, sure, it may come up time to time, but I have faith in our member community.

So getting CHAT moving day and night is a great idea. I have seen the overall 'feel and touch' of Spine-Health moving more and more to the positive, friendly and want-to-be-here atmosphere. We all want to see this continue to grow and become even stronger.

When I first joined Spine-Health in 2006, the tone was all members watched for each others back, members cared about other members, members were always looking to help other members and the introduction to new people was amazing. Sure, back then there were only about 2,200 members and now we are over 11,000. But the objectives of Spine-Health has never changed.

The major reason for this pleasant environment is due to the member community. I have been around long enough to realize that people take care of people. And to me, right now this is what I am seeing.

Thanks from my entire team and I know without asking them, thanks from the owners of Spine-Health.

  • It is an awesome little group we have here! I know most days (well, nights mostly) I'm in chat, I've left feeling better than when I got there. I don't know what I'd do without having the people I've "met" here in my life!

    That is really the biggest blemish CHAT has. The Trolls and those that want to cause problems.
    Chat has been a vehicle that so many people have come to enjoy and benefit from. It is a shame that there is a small minority that want to disrupt that.

    We try to do what we can to make sure Chat is a safe and enjoyable place for everyone.
