I understand not every Web Chat is Specific to every Forum Disorder.

Many times we have loved ones or care takers that the Topics may involve.

That's why we post them on every Forum.

I really hope you have a great night,

Tracy Z.


I am the Director of Member Services for Ben's Friends. I also am a Rare Disorder Member &

Multi Forum Moderator & lead the fight on Ben's Friends against Spammers.

I have been very respectful in every word I have written to you.

Under the circumstances I am giving you the benefit of doubt due to your misplaced anger.

I understanding your frustration.

My purpose for posting the Health Chats is they are incredibly informative about an array of medical topics and beneficial to Members.

You are the only Member out of 40,000 that has said a word negatively about the Web Chats or the Cleveland Clinic.

I know not every experience with ever facility & doctor is positive.

It took me 52 Specialists and almost four years to get a correct diagnosis and I was hours away from becoming a quadriplegic when I had an emergency 16 hour Brain and C Spine Surgeries.

I have had many negative experiences from facilities and medical providers.

My main concern is always Ben's Friends Members.

As much as I would like to leave your previous posts so everyone would understand your input it does go against Ben's Friends Guidelines, so both have to be deleted. I must advise you.If you continue to make negative comments about a facility or medical provider by name you will be suspended from this Forum for a limited time. If you continue to break Ben's Friends Guidelines, which are located on the middle of the Main Page, you will be banned from the community permanently. I just want you aware so there are not any misunderstandings.

Not that anyone wants you to leave & I am not being rude. I am just stating the facts.

Ben's Friends Forum Guidelines:

  1. No Personal attacks
  2. No Offensive content (profanity, sexual references, illegal activity subject matter, pornographic material or photos)
  3. No Profanity, sexual references and illegal activity subject matter are not allowed in the Chat Room.
  4. Specific doctor or hospitial names mentioned in a negative context, for legal reasons.
  5. Specific doctor or hospital names in a positive context are welcome.
I am sorry you left me a message on MY Page. I am not notified I have a My Page Message post and since I work on every Forum it is much better if you leave me a Private Message, which you can do if you are friends or not with another Member by going to their My Page. I have updated My Page to advise anyone that wants to leave me a message to send me a private Message.
Please accept my apology for not responding.
I am sorry our correspondence had to take this tone & hope you understand I am only deleting your posts to protect Ben's Friends and you from unwanted and unneeded lawsuits.
