There are times when new posters who don't understand the purpose of this forum, which is to provide a safe, comfortable, non-judgmental space for posters who are or were caregivers to share experiences and techniques needed for caregiving an elder, start in with rude discourse on non- careging topics.
We need to maintain civil discourse and not get derailed into politics or name-calling. If someone provokes, go silent.
Report provocative posts.
Email the moderators and tell them not to stand for provoking posters.
Let's keep our forum polite and on topic.
