There seems to be some attempts at humor that I don't understand but let me remind everyone that the INV forum is a support-only forum for those making the decision to not vaccinate. It is NOT intended to be a safe-haven for making fun of other members or other choices about vaccination. Especially, considering that they are not welcome to post a response. If any of these posts are intended to be a dig on another member, their posts on another thread, or anything of that nature, they will need to be edited. If you have a PM from me you will need to edit before continuing to post.

I guess I read this a little differently that you did , ICM.

 

Serenbat asked if PSM had changed sides.  I suspect it was in jest, but it could have been a real question.  If it was in jest, on a scale of of 1-5, with 5 being the most mean spirited, I give it a 1 or 1.5.  

 

I added that we have cookies over here.  It was not an inside joke or anything like that - just a fun way of saying, yes PSM - come join us - we have cookies over here.  (Not true, sadly, unless people are hiding cookies from me! )

 

I like to think that if I wandered over to mindful vax, and someone said "what are you doing here?  Come join us!  We have chocolate!"  that I would be able to accept it as playful ribbing and respond that I have better chocolate over on INV, or decline their offer of food graciously, or some such thing…..I also know that there is a somewhat adversarial  relationship between many on INV and MV, so maybe on some days I  would not have been able to shrug it off.  I hope I would have been able to.  

 

PSM, if you are reading, I hope your feelings were not hurt.  That was not my intent.

That's exactly how I read those early posts, KM, and they are fine and do not need edits. A subsequent post went over the line, IMO, and that posts is what prompted me to post to the thread. That post has been edited and I thank the member who chose to do that. We're all good. And, thank you very much for your clarification and kind words.

I also think that a lot of things have to do with the outcome and not just the lack of vaccines. I think that parents that choose not to vaccinate generally tend to make healthier choices in general, like eating healthy, avoiding toxins, and exercising. These things all can account for the reduction in infection rates.

As this is the INV forum, I would think that the majority of posters and readers here begin with assumption that vaccines can compromise health. Of course there are many factors involved the health of the individual child, but by far the most impact is likely to come from vaccines. Children, now get 49 to 51 vaccines during the first 6 years of life, that is a huge hit to the immune system.

I dont vaccinate, but I also think I make a valid point regarding the "study".
