Welcome to the POZ Community Forums, a round-the-clock discussion area for people with HIV/AIDS, their friends/family/caregivers, and others concerned about HIV/AIDS.  Click on the links below to browse our various forums; scroll down for a glance at the most recent posts; or join in the conversation yourself by registering on the left side of this page.

Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • The information shared in these forums, by moderators and members, is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between an individual and his/her own physician.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

Well after being publicly slapped down over a post, I was prepared to gracefully retreat. However, to receive this message from one of the mods, I'm sad to say I'm out of here:

Another dollbaby who can brighten a room by leaving it, Peter.

Seems like there's a lotta that goin' around...



If that is the kind of contempt mods feel towards posters who cross their perceived lines, then this isn't much of a community.  Nice to know things are so black and white in mod land.  I often wondered why posters generally seem to come and go so quickly here, perhaps this is why.

See you all, good luck in your struggles with HIV and thank you for those who have been so helpful and supportive.

Northern, you're absolutely right to be offended. You have my complete apology. I can only say I had mixed up two separate circumstances when I wrote this comment in haste. It was  after a long day of appointments when I was trying to hurridley trying catch up on e mails.

That's only by way of explanation and not an excuse. You would understandably have been hurt by such a remark. If you know my communications in general you know I am actually quite consistently respectful in my comments.

Nevertheless this was a huge dumb on my part. Mea culpa and I hope you will accept my sincere apology.
