Here is a list of the types of posts that will be flagged as immediate Forum Violations:

1 Providing Medical Advise to other Members This includes what/how to tell your doctor to do something (order a MRI, give you a higher dosage of a medication), What exercises you should do, etc

2 Listing specific doctor names and/or specifics institutes

3 Post any thing that contains solicitation If a site you are posting has even one item for sale, that is considered solicitation and is not permitted.

4 Bashing of doctors or others in the medical field Its one thing that you may be unhappy with your experiences, but you still can not call out any of those in the medical field in a negative manner.

5 Bash or make deliberate fun of another member Many of us here have a good sense of humor, so there is some harmless ribbing, but it is a violation to attack another member.

6 Impersonate another member. Under no circumstances is any permitted to try to fool other members by trying to be who they are not.

7 Requesting information for a poll or survey

8 The use of Dr, Doctor, MD, chiro, etc in a member name
