"It is difficult to discuss such threads on general terms as it is impossible to see exactly what happened on a thread that caused it to be removed."
That's true. I guess what many of us were surprised at was that while some threads having to do with involuntary FF and questioning some of the reasoning behind not vaccinating (which is not to recommend vaccination, much less mandatory vaccination) were removed, we never do see those which are outright recommending mandatory vaccination or formula feeding. Perhaps they are removed more quickly?
I take your word for it that these threads are occuring but I do support the following amendments:
1) The formula-feeding rule be amended to something like "elective formula feeding" or better, "formula feeding as anything but a worst-case scenario last resort".
2) In terms of threads, maybe a special sticky thread on low-supply issues, located in the breastfeeding challenges board, could allow short-term discussions of formula issues for the small but real percentage of women who need it (i.e. those whose milk never comes in, those for whom sufficient milk never came in, those who must, for their own survival, take medication that could seriously harm their newborn baby, and all of whom at the same time do not have access to breastmilk without having to spend so much that they would be forced into alternative housing... the last of which, considering the cost of breast milk is unfortunately a large percentage
A special disclaimer could be put in that thread as well, along with links to the threads on increasing supply, getting around thrush and food sensitivities, etc.
