I'm all for the free exchange of ideas, but out of respect for myself and other users, I do ask that people do not post:

- Personal attacks.
- Attempts at religious conversion (though believers are invited to participate).
- Promotion of "alternative" medicines, pseudo-science or "woo," unless paired with treatments based in science.
- Discussion of life expectancy. Given how inaccurate those figures tend to be, especially with the speed at which cancer research has progressed, I find it needlessly depressing.
