I am not infected. But I would like to point out that you are making it sound as if you are against anyone that is inflicted with it. This is a place for people to come and make friends, and be comfortable doing it. So why would they want to reply and take the chance of being criticized, ridiculed, or just plain put on the spot?

Ahhhhh....now I understand. I apologize if it seemed like I was "bashing" you for what you posted, because I honestly wasn't. I just wanted to point out the possiblility of people taking it the wrong way. I feel for you and your dear friend. It must be very painful for her and for you as well. Again, I apologize, and hope you understand why I said what I did, and I hope you'll forgive my bluntness.

Whether or not a person is infected with HIV is a very personal issue which they do not have to disclose on an International forum or to anyone except an intimate partner. You are way out of line with this post, or at least with the wording you chose to use. If you wanted to discuss a particular aspect of being infected with HIV, I'm sure that you could have used some imagination and shown some sensitivity in choosing your wording so that you would get a response. Use your common sense here. Out of over 72.000 people, many of whom are from the areas of the world which have the highest rates of HIV/AIDS worldwide, it is logical to assume that a lot of people here are HIV positive. That doesn't mean that they would be responsive to this post. Maybe you should do some reading and educate yourself about the disease and about sensitivity towards those who are infected and the social stigma that is associated with disclosure of HIV status.

Maybe people aren't replying because they are put off by you spelling. Your statement about replying by the way is just horrible. Ever hear of mind your own business?
