Again, someone doesn't need to be a member here to read a lot of the threads. I just went to DH's computer and was able to view threads on parenting, homebirth, gentle discipline, etc. These forums are open to everyone with an internet connection. The exceptions are PAP and TAO. (IIRC) I could even see MamitaM's post about mods in Q&S. I typed kathymuggle and birth into google and came up with your profile (first hit), a thread about socialized medicine (4th hit), etc. It is all out there, in the open.
I hear you. I am grateful for the message actually. I think a lot of good has come out of this thread.
Now - birth and my username? My youngest is 8 and I have do not remember ever being in a birth discussion. Neat - will check out! As per socialised medicine, heck yeah. I am Canadian, lol.
edited to add: kathymuggle and birth had over 3000 posts. Good Lord. I guess nothing ever disappears in cyber world. I can assure you I am not a super-special snowflake in the world of birth.
