In recent posts on our forum people have been asked to disclose personal information, such as facebook page identity.
The terms and conditions for the Dystonia Society forum discourage people from encouraging other users to disclose personal information and this is for a very good reason.
If you attend a group and meet someone face to face then you can decide to swap information with people based on meeting them, and making a face to face assessment. However, on the forum users can put anythning down about their identity and you do not have a valid way as a fellow user of checking this out.
What people have in common on the forum is that they share the same neurological condition and this can mean that people who would otherwise be self aware drop their normal guard and may find themselves disclosing information they would nor normally think of doing in other circumstances.
This is definitely not allowed on the Dystonia Society Forum and people who continue to do this will not be able to be part of the forum in future.
