Welcome! The HearingLikeMe forums are built to provide inspiration, connection and information to anyone touched by hearing loss. We believe that respect and kindness are key elements of this goal, and so we ask all visitors to let those qualities guide their forum behavior.
Here, people share their stories, and sometimes even bare their souls. Our rules for comments and discussions honor this sharing:
1. Be respectful – even if you disagree with someone else’s point of view.
2. No personal attacks.
3. Stay on topic.
4. Add value; don’t take it away.
These rules are designed to be simple and easily understood. They will help insure that we -- HearingLikeMe editors, readers and commenters -- create the most productive community possible.
Comments and commenters that do not follow these rules will be deleted and/or blocked from the site. You will know if you’ve stepped out-of-line when other members call you out for something you’ve said. We will know, too, and take appropriate action.
If you’re wondering whether or not you should post something borderline ask yourself: “What would my mother (or grandmother) think of me if I did this?” Then make the right choice.
One more thing. HearingLikeMe forums exist to facilitate conversations and understanding. To that end, comments should reflect the topic being discussed. Do not use the comment threads purely to promote your own site, product or business.
HearingLikeMe is about helping people, and we work hard every day to carry out this mission. Please join us.
