Posters who are critical of vaccine skepticism are given plenty of leeway in stretching the limits of the forum guidelines with respect to personal attacks, etc, but vax questioners are walking on eggshells.
Recently, a slew of posters encouraged by troll sites launched a campaign to derail threads in the vax forum. Their posts were eventually stopped and deleted, but the official response from moderators was to loosen the guidelines to ALLOW more aggressive behavior.
Will someone please explain what mothering's official stance on this controversy is currently? Is the site funded by pharmaceutical advertisers, and bound by some restrictions as to what criticisms of drug products can be allowed? When will the locked threads be addressed?
There are a good number of concerned posters who would like some answers, and would like to feel that we have a place where we can discuss these issues.
