I would like to know if there is a way to respond to advise and answers from a question I asked. Is that possible?

Please give us the ability to edit our own posts. The mistakes are hard to find even for those of us who proofread until we post it and its more spread out.

I agree, i wish I could delete some posts too, but we can't at this time. If you feel you said something wrong to someone...send them a hug and explain it. Most will understand. Or go to the original posting and restate what you meant to say. AC is really great at moderating this site and they have been very good in responding to me when I have posted about something that may need to be corrected. Of course I don't expect them to correct something specifically for me..but in time they will make changes as more people have issues with a certain thing. As Jeanne said, this site is free...full of info that we all benefit from and contribute to.

FaceBook is free but it's bombarded with advertisements. They have even admitted that nothing is private - even if you want privacy. They sell your private info to these advertising companies. That's how FaceBook makes a profit. Yet, people still flock to FB and post everything in their lives. I once applied for emails from the Alzheimer site. I got fed up when almost every email from them was solicitations. So, I unsubscribed. At least Agingcare is Not sending those kinds of email to me. And yes, I will admit that those advertisements irritate me since I keep accidentally opening it when I'm using my finger to scroll up to the top page. But, that's their income. Just like radio shows have advertisements in between the show breaks. Those advertisements keep that radio show alive and running on the air. It's the reality of life.

I have asked only one time since I've been posting here for close to 2 years (?) for the AC admin to please delete my post. I included a copy of the site (top page ..www.agingcare.com/.." Actually, I sent several emails to them in a panic - it was a long holiday weekend. They did follow through and deleted my post.

Amen to what Jeanne said. Aging Care is a business that provides this group as a nicety to caregivers. If you want a group that isn't a business, you might find one on Yahoo. My only complaint about AC is that occasionally a person comes in with such a nasty attitude that it poisons the threads. It makes me wish that we had an "ignore" button so we aren't tempted to read what these negative Nancy's write. I'm glad that we have such a great support group as AC.

This is a completely legit site.

Running a site like this is expensive. AgingCare accepts advertising to pay for this, and, I suppose, to make a profit. No user of the site is required to even read the ads, let alone purchase something.

Anyone who feels suckered in should certainly apply for their registrations fee back -- oh wait, the site is free, isn't it? Well, then, anyone who feels suckered in can just leave.

I'd like to see a feature that allows edits, at least within a certain time of posting. I have said as much in surveys. There are other features I'd like, too. But I can't see the lack of the features I'd like as evidence of lack of integrity!

I've done a search on founder Joe Buckheit, and I certainly didn't uncover anything sinister or shady. He is a businessman. That works for me.

If this site is not meeting your needs, whether it is run by a business or a non-profit organization, then certainly you should find a site that suits you better.

(By the way some of my favorite recipe sites are offered by for-profit businesses. What I care about is the quality of the recipes, not how the site is paid for or if they make a profit.)

This is the reason I'm cautious about posting anymore.

i did have some misgivings about this site but was pretty desperate to find an online support group for caregivers. Does anyone know of any sites that are completely legit?

Me too! One feels so stupid having to read through typos and left out words.

I left personal info in an answer, tried to go back & delete or edit it out & couldn't.
There was another question that raised some painful memories buried for years with my own family. I really think my time has come to leave aging care. I did think it was a good site for these kinds of things but when you can't edit words here & there it is dangerous.

We should have the option of editing or deleting post. I hope this feature will be added soon.

I agree with you debmath. I have written comments while not in the best of moods and sorry I said what I said..It sure would have been nice if I could delete..

We need to be able to make edits and also delete comments entirely.

I made a comment this morning and after I read it "on the big screen," I realized I'd left out one critical word in the topic sentence. The rest of the post is confusing without it. It's hard to write cohesively in these tiny boxes.

I'm also sure there are others who have posted comments to others' questions they wish they could delete completely instead of leaving them floating in cyberspace forever. The conversations here are HIGHLY sensitive and often evoke great emotion, sometimes impulsive and negative. For that reason alone, we should be able to edit or delete.

If you sent them a personal message you can delete that. Just go to your News feed then activity find the message click on it and you'll see delete in bottom right corner.

I have actually looked for a delete button because I have made a comment here and there that I would like to remove and I can't find a way .. they should change that.
