Welcome

To all living with HIV
« on: September 19, 2012, 02:45:29 PM »
Hello all, I have been reading and following these forums for a while.

Although I am HIV negative, my thoughts are with all those who have to live and deal with this virus.  You guys and gals are truly amazing individuals, I urge you all to hang in there and I wish you all happy and healthy lives.

No, this site clearly states in the Welcome section which everyone sees when they first register a user name that:

At any rate, do you honestly think anyone is going to identify you with a user name of "Pricho01"?

hivaware,

As someone who is NOT hiv positive, you are NOT permitted to post outside the Am I Infected? forum or the Off Topic forum. Keep in mind that the Off Topic forum is only for subjects that have nothing to do with hiv. You are also permitted to post in the Someone I Care About forum, but only if you have a significant other, close friend or family member who is living with hiv.

I deleted a post you left in a thread in the Just Tested forum, as you had no responses to that one. I'm only leaving this thread up because you've had responses.

If you persist in posting where you're not permitted to post, you risk being given a Time Out or even a permanent ban. Thank you for your cooperation and adherence to our posting rules.

Ann

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

BTW, I've decided to lock this thread, so hivaware isn't tempted to respond to the comments he's had thus far.
