As has already been quoted, the CLW forum exists upon, but is not necessarily limited to, these guidelines:

1. Education and Awareness for members who don't know about CLW or who only have limited, biased information about it.

2. Support for those who are currently practicing CLW. Society is not very supportive or encouraging of CLW and this is a place where those dealing with the many challenges CLW presents can come to find encouragement and support from others who either have or are practicing CLW.

3. Sense of Community for those who post here. But not to the point of exclusion or posting threads that do not apply directly to CLW. For example, threads like "what is your favourite nursing name" must be placed within the Breastfeeding forum or the Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy forum, as applicable to the thread topic. It's great to form a sense of sisterhood amoung CLW mama's but its very important that threads in CLW are specifically about CLW.
I realize that members who are devoted to this forum would like to see what they regard as support only posting here. But we also need to keep a door open to those "who only have limited, biased information" about CLW and who express that in their posts here. While we certainly will not tolerate someone's advocacy to speak out againt CLW, we can make room for posts that express their thoughts and feelings. Why? So you can use the chance to educate and inform them.

So when someone posts expressing things that reflect their bias or misinformation
grab the opportunity to educate them. If a post is rude or insulting report it but don't address it in your reply in a manner that will cause more deterioration of the discussion.

I'll also point out that this thread was started to discuss a discussion at another online community which is against our rules. Bring a subject for discussion but in a general manner without referring to it stemming from another community.
