This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
If I Have Interacted With You In This Forum This Message May be of Interest to You
As previously indicated on YANA I am authoring a book based on my personal experience with PCa. The first "half" of the book will be a verbatim rendering of my on line journal. The second "half" will be my interactions with select YANA participants. My plan is to use only the initials of such participants not their full names.
One of my advisors expressed concern about my intent to quote YANA participants without their consent which in her opinion could lead to legal consequences. I would very much appreciate your thoughts on her concern.
More importantly let me know if you interacted with me on YANA and would prefer not to be quoted in my upcoming book.
Hope all is well with you and yours.
