Can we discuss when it is appropriate for a non-beleiver to post to a subforum?

 

Example:  can pro-vaxxers post on the non-vax forum, and vice versa?

 

Can a poster let it be known she only wishes to talk to those she is in basic agreement with?  (such as - can a poster on mindful vax say she only wishes to talk to those who also consider themselves mindfully vaccinating).  If they can, they should do so (IMHO) in the OP before others become invested in the thread.


There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

The Mindful Vaccination and I'm Not Vaccinating forums are support only. We have pretty clear guidelines posted. Here: http://www.mothering.com/community/a/vaccination-forum-guidelines

 

We don;t absolutely restrict people from posting based on belief. We do require everyone to post in support for the specific forum focus.

I am still a little confused.  

 

I don't wish to break the guidelines, so, seeking clarification…..

 

May I, a non-vaxxer, post on the mindfull vax forums if I do not advocate non-vax on that thread?

 

May I correct a mindful vaxxer on the mindful vax forum if they say something that is categorically and verifiably wrong incorrect? (example:  50 000 kids dies of measles last year in the USA)

 

TIA!

If your post is to actively seek information and understanding and take part in the discussion because you are trying to decide whether or not to take a specific vaccine then your post would be fine. But if you are simply posting to disagree, disprove, or argue an opinion or information stated as someone who is not vaccinating then your post is inappropriate in the forum. 

 

Does that help clarify it a bit?
