> > I'm certain everyone is not careful or deliberative of how they use what they learn. I'm not sure how you account for that however. Medlib is correct in her statement that extended exposure to the board gives you a better sense of who knows what they're talking about. However, if your ability to understand the science of psychoparmacology is as limited as mine is, then the board is still very valuable but only for limited well defined purposes. e.g. the sharing of experiences, the gathering of enough information to help you formulate questions for your own physician etc. The person who hands out incorrect info and passes that off as fact is dangerous and I've seen lots of examples of where others try to bring those people to task. However, misinformation or incomplete information or misleading information is not going to always be picked up on and unless you want to become an information policemen, the best that you can do may be to make people understand the limitations of the board.
