Topic: Advertising/Marketing

We're becoming concerned that sales reps and pharmaceutical companies are using our discussion groups as a method to advertise their products. 

Over the last few weeks a surprising number of posts have appeared all with the same general information, all sounding too good to be true and all ending with "I don't work for the company." 

I don't want to delete these posts because a)maybe their legitimate, b)maybe someone can benefit from these posts and c)we're all adults here, we can see through blatant marketing messages.   

But if these posts start appearing in every discussion group I will be forced to delete them.  Advertising on this site is inappropriate and providing false hope of a "cure, with no side effects" is just plain wrong. 

This is meant to be a warning to those of you looking to advertise on this site and for everyone else reading these posts, take them with a grain of salt.

If there are any problems, concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to email me at rick@cholangiocarcinoma.org.

Thanks.
