Lassie, I don't see the intention as an attempt to push you out of the Forum. But I am not going to pull any punches in commenting. Before the dustup started, (and misdirected attention away from the original thread) you were essentially well wishing the person who started the thread since you acknowledged you didn't really know the answer.

Sometimes that kind of support can be useful. In this instance the writer had a specific question which needed to be answered and however well intentioned you weren't doing that. You know there is no sin in not knowing an answer. And sometimes the wiser thing is to step aside when you don't know something and let others handle it.

If your intention is to be helpful overtime you will find appropriate occasions to do that. Please don't allow this to become an occasion for more back and forth which as I said only distracts from the original purpose of the thread.

Cheers,

Andy I was 99.99999 percent sure I was right, having discussed it at various times during my sexal health classes for my job or for THT too

I dont think I made a mistake or did anything wrong, but if this is tne case I will gladly stop posting and go elsewhere

 :)

Andy Velez:
Leaving the Forums is totally up to you, Lassie. My comments were not made to cause you to do that, so as far as I am concerned the door remains open to you.

scotslassie:
thank you andy

I more meant as I was told off for posting in a wrong forum as well, so I kind of thought maybe I should leave

Ill stick around and hopefully Ill learn over time- but in the meantime, I guess there will be times I maybe think I know an answer. TBH do any of us truly know the answers, or are we just going on the majority of health prfessionals thoughts and is that enough? Just a thought :)

Yes, we do know the answers.   Until, you are sure of the answers perhaps it would be best not to offer advice.   The quote above is an example of that which may cause doubt in the minds of other posters.  This site relies on it's thorough credibility and cross-checking responses to make sure no incorrect information is given.   Just a thought
