Kathy, I wasn't even that active of a member when my daughter as a little, and I knew about TWWS way back then from learning about it on MDC. While there is no advisory about it, it's not like the information has been suppressed. I'm not saying you knew back then too, but from what I gather, you've know about it for quite some time. If you felt strongly about people knowing, why wait till now to bring it up? Why not PM people or bring it up sooner. This kind of reminds me of when I bring something up with my husband I'm irritated about at the moment and turns the conversation around about something I did like three weeks ago so we don't have to talk about the subject at hand.
I have brought it up, repeatedly. You alluded to the fact I brought up before upthread. I have pmed people. I genuinely feel people have a right to know. I do think more people now know - primarily because of the troll thread, but also because other people have told them.
Let's do a bit of a timline here:
-ssm made a winky
-you interpretted it as a joke
-I said I was pretty sure the winky was alluding to TWWS or other pro-vax sites
-Stik came on and said we should not discuss TWWS - which I could not let pass. The nerve of saying we should not discuss TWWS when they have spent years discussing us behind our backs!
…and it snowballed from there. I did not bring it up as some sort of PSA - the topic arose pretty organically.
I will say I have done my fair share of posting on this thread about TWWS (I feel pretty strongly about it) - but I am hardly the only one. I have even tried to drop the topic (mostly because I am getting repetitive) but people keep bringing it up, lol. It takes two to tango.
