And that is exactly the point , why we should have an  " I vax " forum . MC is not about critizising others for the choices they make , but for giving us a chance to explore our options and make educated choices for ourselves and our kids , but it does not help me , if I post a vacc question just somewhere , because there is no special forum for it and get slammed with " this is , why you shouldn´t vacc ....."

I am past that , I want to be able to exchange views with other like - minded parents and get THEIR view about for example , which vacc and when , and not the low-down about , why others , who do not vacc , feel the way , they do !

The S&D vax forum guidelines specifically state:
This forum is not a place to argue against selective or delayed vaccination or debate vaccination in general. Such discussions are already hosted in the main Vaccinations forum and posts in that vein are most welcome and appropriate there. Our purpose for this forum is to provide information that is helpful for parents who have made the decision to vaccinate and are not seeking discussion against their decision but rather support and information to help them proceed in the best manner.
Sounds like that's exactly what you're looking for!

I don't personally see the need...there are already plenty of places online for that. However I like it open to all...provided all sides can be respectful, which I know does not always happen. Once it starts getting snarky with either side I take off for a while.
