HealthBoards

HealthBoards

9/7/14

I have been a member of many support sites, and a moderator on one for a British medical charity. I was astonished at the way admin on Healthboards treat the members, they are terribly bad mannered, and they ban for whatever they like. It seems that the rules are open to their own interpretation and they can do no wrong. Any outside site even research from Pubmed seems to be off limits which is ridiculous on a 'so called' healthboard. It is far too restrictive to be of help to people.
They also appear to dislike people who are well informed and able to advise people as much as admin can... jealousy? There is something really wrong with this board and I would advise all with any medical condition to find a forum elsewhere, probably it is best to find one dedicated to the condition they have.

If you do get banned, save your time writing to admin (the message tells you to do this). I didn't even get a reply and I tried twice.
My advice, avoid, they seem to have some agenda, what kind I have no idea, but bet it involves money. Especially if they are now selling an app. Glad I didn't spend any money to find out how bad the forum was.

Tip for consumers: Just receive info, don't try to support anyone as it is so difficult to do without breaching their minefield of rules.

Have ordered for years as prices and dose sizes where much better than in the UK. However we so have to stay under a certain price or the postage and customs charges double the overall price. Lately a worrying feature is that certain items are 'Restricted in this region or country'. For some reason we cannot order fish oil, gelatin or dhea? I am sure there are many more that I haven't come across yet but it isn't like that at other US supplement companies. This reflects badly on them for all the years I have used them for all my supplement needs. I will consider going elsewhere now as lots of companies are giving equally good prices, service and not restricting.
