1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    What fantastic news the two brave medics have recovered from Ebola.

    This is a milestone in treatment, not including the experimental drug they received, but what the doctors have learnt during the time treating these two people.

    The doctors working in a excellent clinical environment will have discovered and developed treatment protocols that quite simply couldn't have been materialised in the African theatre.

    This is a major step forward.

    Very good news. Working with such a deadly invisible enemy with little high tech back up is proper bravery.

    It's strange how this disease crops up every few years and the seems to disappear. The potential for spread is truly frightening as the movement of people becomes greater every year.

    Is this new drug / treatment something that will be able to be used in Africa once it is properly understood or does it require western hospitals?

    Cheers Andy

    Who knows Andy, but from what I've read it's a single dose and was given in situ, thing is, it's so experimental, getting large enough doses is pipe dream, I don't think it should be considered the silver bullet though.

    The CDC are being very coy about it, quite rightly, my professional (but uneducated in this field) is that the care given, in expert environment is the key, monitoring patients haematology, organ function, electrolyte balance etc and reacting symptomatically has been the key to survival, life support.

    This groundbreaking info has such a level of translatable clinical relevance, in African clinics dealing with this infection the laboratory services must be negligible, but if a treatment protocol is developed, given 'stat', similar to other treatment plans this could see the morbidity change dramatically.

    Fantastic stuff.

    I thought Ebola was infectious up to 2 months after recovery (for the lucky few :eek: ) Why have they been discharged so soon? :confused:
