@Bradford had requested a while ago that we specifically discuss what makes us different. I had originally thought that we should add it in one of our other documents, but, having gone through them all, I don’t see it fitting well anywhere, so I think we should just write it up on its own.
What makes us different?
We are self-managed, self-moderated and self-driven
We want to be a long-term home for any person with diabetes who wants it to be so.
We expect our members to take on community projects, and we are ready to support our members’ own initiatives to fight diabetes
We believe in aggressively fighting diabetes. We are not content with the status quo. We want to do more and better. We experiment and try new techniques. We pool our knowledge to find new and better ways to deal with diabetes.
What do you think?
[EDIT] @Bradford originally wrote: “FUDiabetes is a place that encourages conversations from all view points–even unpopular ones”. I may not agree with you but I will defend your right to disagree. Unlike highly manicured and strictly censored diabetes forums, FUDiabetes allow all respectful view points to flourish, ect, ect.
