In terms of this site and how it compares to others i found the following to be true with some contradictions on the way
The site is on average more pro med than others
There is a large user base that post frequently
The feed back system is about right ( likes , etc)
On average the users tend to be dealing with their dx for quite a while
Users have largely their own opinion on matters , more bubly than other forums.
However for such a pro med site , i find that people post less on meds and more on philosophical and religious matters. I find sites that are more anti meds do not post no where as much on these matters. Thats not a criticisim just an observation. Other sites tend to post more on practical matters yet have a generally unscientific outlook on the illness. Seems like a contradiction.
