    I did actually, think I even thanked you for it.

    You've obviously not been here long enough to see why we have different sections, problem is ever since they've been created this had been a huge issue for the pro non vaxxing section.

    What about the other day when someone posted asking for icecream maker recipes and some wierdo posted a couple of times how she didn't like icecream makers. Then became annoyed because I called her on it.

So if you're making choices that go against the grain, especially when those choices can so severely impact others who have no choice and rely on herd immunity, you might just have to also accept the fact that most people are going to disagree with you. Nobody here has disrespected you, or name-called, or been abusive. They've just disagreed, strongly.
    So because pro-non vaxxers are the minority they don't deserve the same boundaries as the majority?

    I didn't see that... Was it in the pro-ice cream making section?

    Oh I know why the separate sections are here. Because:
    1) people aren't overly respectful of others parenting styles
    2) people are far too sensitive to what other people say...

    I realise that. I haven't bashed anyone or their opinion, and was sticking up for a PP who put forward a strongly worded yes, but articulate opinion that was backed up by a frightening personal anecdote. I don't believe her response was "bashing" anyone either.

    @VicParkthese threads that MM and I are talking about are never moderated well and are usually deleted because admin cant keep up because grown women on a parenting forum cant respect other choices to not vaccinate as they can for breastfeeding or formula feeding.
