I wanted to reply to your comment about reads versus replies.
When you see a whole lot of reads, that does NOT necessarily mean that people here are reading your posts.
Robots scan every website around the world...continuously!
For every word in your post, a different robot will hit on the thread/post and list it in search engines such as Google.
Without these robots, you would never be able to type in a symptom, an illness, in fact any topic at all, and come up with sites for you to go to look into.
These robots are the mainframe of our search engines and necessary to keep the Internet alive.
So...... if you see 65 reads or 265, it may have only been 1 or 2 humans that read a particular post. One can never assume the number of reads equals the number of members to have read your post.
This subject comes up from time to time, so I hope this clarifies the topic for you.
