Pete Lost at Sea

edited April 2014 in Colorectal Cancer #1

I have been following his blog. He posted today that he really wants to come back and will behave himself. I know that even I have had my differences with him due to his harsh comments but if you read the entries into his blogs he is just very passionate about beating cancer as we all are but has trouble expressing his passion in a way that is not offensive to some. I think he should be given another chance here and you can all blame me if he gets out of line again. I have expressed my wish for him to be unblocked to CSN as well.

    Blocked

    Didn't realize that he had been blocked.  Everyone has their opinions, and although his at times become very strong, he does it from his heart.  I'd never go through what he does, but if that is what he wants he has every right.  Hope he will be able to come back.  He was very encouraging to people when he wasn't pushing his agenda.

    Won't do any good

    Even after several people who disagreed with my friend changed their views and sent her apologies, then she apologized to TPTB at CSN and offered to never post a Bible verse again, she didn't even get a reply. 

    Pete's a good guy and is fighting to live because of his children and other situations which were shared privately.  I vote for him to be allowed to return.

     

    Where's John23?  Is he banned too?

    Was he blocked?

    I had no problem with his posts. 

    Each to his own, I would say.  

    I know he tipped the apple cart a bit, but if we don't care for his posts, theres nothing saying we have to open them up and read them. 

    I hope he posts again, seeing his name means that he's still in the fight, and that is a good thing.

    He is doing well. Just google

    He is doing well. Just google [content removed by site administrator] and his blog will come up if you are interested.

    Jay:

    Sorry I can't go along with you on this one.  I checked out his blog after your post and he says "USA is a joke as far as I am concerned" and goes on about having lunch with Obama and changing the cancer world.  Huh?  Credentials? 

    Jay, at one time, a few years ago, when I had posted that George was starting his second line of chemotherapy Pete had posted that patients should consider death before taking this combo.  He changed his title after I protested.  It was horribly hurtful, still is. 

    People are fighting for their lives, to be on this earth as long as possible, and telling them to consider death is an unacceptable response in my humble opinion.  From then on I stayed away from his posts, I had enough heartache and didn't need more from a stranger.

    Take care - Tina

    Why should anyone be banned for posting a scripture?

    I don't understand why anyone should be banned for posting scriptures. I understand that not everyone is a Christian or have religious beliefs, but like I said below, if we know a certain forum member posts ideas or thoughts that we don't like or agree with, then lets not open up their posts and read them.

    I also remember hearing that there was a special forum for Christians (I think). But why? I don't want to go to several forums, I don't have the time or the energy, I want to post here. I like the people I have met here, I don't think I should have to go to a sepereate forum just to meet Christians.

    Is there a forum for Muslims, Jews, Wiccans? 

    We're all on here for a reason, to get advice, information, support and comfort. To share advice, information, support and comfort.

    I just wish we could all get on.

    Just my two pennies worth of thoughts.

    Not sure

    I have to say I am not sure about Pete coming back to CSN

    I have no problem with him sharing his personal treatment plans or philosophies.  Each peron must find what works best for them physically and emotionally.

    Unfortunately, Pete has made some very inflammatory remarks in the past about treatment options and people who don't see things his way or who express differing opinions.

    Pete is definately passionate about his choices.  I am glad for any level of success it brings him.  I just don't want to see him being any less tolerant of the path others choose to take.

    Insensitive

    Ah, this is very different. 

    Posting insensitive replies is totally unacceptable. 

    Does CSN not have active moderators? Posts like that should be deleted immedietely. 

    I know you can flag a post. How quickly are they taken care of?

    No one has the right to ban.

    No one has the right to ban other than CSN. Don't read his post If they hurt you or make you angry.    Many people left this forum due to not being able to talk about prayer, they were shoved off by members.    Despicable.   

     

    Come on folks we have cancer, forgive, even if you can't forget.

    CSN rules of conduct

    You are right, only CSN can ban someone from the site for not following the rules they have set forth.  The one that particularly comes to mind is:

     

    No User shall use the Service to advise or to attempt to influence the views, beliefs, or decisions of other Users about their medical care, their religious practices, or their politics.

    This particular rule goes on to describe situations in more detail.

    Certainly one always has the option of not opening posts on a given topic or by a given user, but that is not the point.  The point is that we are all expected to abide by the rules we agreed to when we joined.

    The ultimate decisions are those of the Administrator.

    From what I was told,

    the blocking was in part because he has a financial relationship with the Hallwang clinic (gets a discount on tx for every person he gets to go there).  He didn't disclose that here, although he did finally fess up on the Colon Club.  He is basically a shill for that clinic, so I guess if we want a salesperson here working on getting his commissions, that would be up to CSN.  I for one was glad to see him gone.  One can be called a "sheep" and "heroin addict" (heroin=sugar) only so many times.  And I believe that the Hallwang clinic is very suspect in many ways, so I don't think it's good for this board to have someone here who is willing to give it glowing reviews while encouraging others to use their life insurance policies to get access to these so-called "miraculous" German therapies.

    And if anyone wants to read yet another heart-breaking case of how Hallwang operates, check out the thread at the CC "Long but final words".

    ETA that the real point is that he was blatantly breaking the CSN rule about influencing others in their medical care, all so he could keep getting those treatments for himself.  Not cool.

    Most of us have terminal

    Most of us have terminal cancer, get over it, don't go where you don't want to go. You are in control of your options. 

     

    Cancer  can cause insanity, depression, craziness, no excuse for his state of mind, but move on. 

     

    Forgiver as I was raised, no one is in charge of my motivation, emotions, thoughts, but me. 

     

    Good day.

    He went beyond sharing and caring

    If he personally "attacked" Tina about George's treatment choices, I would say that is abuse of the rules on here.  Tina should not have to feel bad about it still.  I, for one, do not understand most of his posts and I know English is not his first language.

    Well I have to change my opinion.  Did he really call people names?  I had no idea.  When all of this was going on I was recovering from surgery so I missed what actually happened.  I posted my comment before I read yours.  I don't so much have a problem with the influencing as I never really bothered to read what he was posting except about his progress but resorting to calling people names because you disagree with them is just plain not nice as a human being.

    I think this is a very healthy discussion.  We all care to check on each other, including Pete and so it is good to express thoughts and feelings about banning and posts.

    Wait they're blocking people

    I took my comment off after reading more on the subject.  Calling someone a heroine addict is extreme.  However, I will leave up that I have absolutely no problem with people praying or posting Bible verses.  I'm not a religious person but I do respect that others who are should get support on here.
