Title: RLR's Absence
Post by bigcountry on Jul 12th, 2013, 9:56am

Many people have stated their concerns about the viability of this forum without RLR and I just wanted to say something...

If you have been checked out by your doctor and been given a clean bill of health as far as your heart then you are suffering from benign palpitations....IF THIS IS THE CASE....then this site, staffed by RLR or not in its current state is a TREASURE TROVE of information that can help you TREMENDOUSLY if you are willing to take the time to go back and read his post!!!  This site has MANY MANY years of him responding to posts.  If you read back and truly understand what RLR is trying to say it will help you more than you can imagine!!

One of the problems of people who suffer from anxiety is that they want a quick fix and will not see that their actions are most likely causing their symptoms....if you take the time to TRULY READ AND DIGEST what RLR states time and time again you will be able to live your life in the manner you once did!

But to say this website has no value without him at the helm is just utter nonsense!!!!!

who said this site has no value without RLR?

It does.
The only thing some people want to know is what is wrong with him and why suddenly people made admin and by who'm and for what reason..

and that some people please understand not everything is benign or anxiety..and we cant make that call ..
even for RLR this was tough..

Good post, this is an important note for every new member on the forum. I believe that whether or not RLR is here, his words of wisdom will remain forever. All people need to do is search the forum and have a little patience. There are so many posts by Dr. Rane that I'm sure he's covered everything there is to know about palpitations, their causes and various concerns relating, as well as a lot more.

The forum will continue on and we will make sure that even if RLR cannot respond, we keep his words alive for the new members. He helped me overcome much of my troubles, and I think this is the last chance for our community thread. The doctor said we don't need his participation in that thread, let's keep it alive.

No word from RLR on my end. There are 2 moderators now for one purpose only; to delete spam messages from the forum. There are no new admins only 2 new MODERATORS. This is temporary until RLR returns or the forum is shut down (put into read only mode). If the persons who are moderators do not wish to do this, let me know and I will change your status.

Thank you,

David

Dear David

One thing I just dont get.
The speculation about RLR is based on the fact he hasnt been online here for months. Being a 93 yr old (thats what he told us) that could lead to a possible reason what is wrong and why he is no longer active? Offcourse we dont know. But if even you guys dont know who or where he is, we will probably never know. Or do you guys accept anyone as a MD or GP on your forums claiming to be a doctor? ( please do read and understand this last line as I mean it...I think you guys would have had at least some contact and info on/of/with RLR)?

I also dont get why some people are made moderators ( sorry i called them admins. ..they are mods.. ::) :P) without people knowing what or why in the 1st place. I mean..now you posted a very short message, but imo this message again raises issues. I mean you state..There are 2 moderators now for one purpose only; to delete spam messages from the forum. There are no new admins only 2 new MODERATORS. This is temporary until RLR returns or the forum is shut down (put into read only mode).

How do you know when or if RLR will return?
Why would you shut the forum down into read mode.?

I dont know why any speculation on RLR isolated on one thread would and could have been a problem?


Because I cant answer anything anymore.. i will use this way to answer your post David.
IMO its strange the forum is set in read only mode.  YOU dont operate it. Chemicalforums doesnt but still YOU put the side in Read only mode... WHY

Everyone here shouldnt speculate aboute RLR absence.. but you guys seem te know more or speculate also. otherwise why put the side in read only mode? and just a few eeks ago give people Moderator roles out of nowhere?
Something is very strange here and it is a very unmannerly way to suddenly change things here without any explanation of whatsoever.?
Nothing happened out of the ordinary in RLR's absence.. Only the absence is strange. and the way no one seems to know anything.
Not the way people used the forum afterwards.

Its not RLR who have give you this request ... so who decides this read only mode..?  ....and its a free side so who cares?

This is not my forum nor is it operated by chemicalforums. It is operated soley by RLR. I lend technical assistance to RLR for free. Chemicalforums supplied free hosting as a favor to me. The forum will be put into read only mode because RLR is not here to operate it.

Hi all
I'm a moderator on here (not sure why I still am, as I no longer visit regularly, but only drop by from time to time to see all is well).

To fill you in, I have no contact with rlr outside of the forum so I am as in the dark as you all. But whatever is the situation, what I do know is that rlr's words are always here for you to read, and you are not alone. rlr's straight talking and informative replies from all his previous postings are a valuable resource even if he is not here to talk to us today or tomorrow, or in future. (Of course we hope he will be!)

Just about every question you have ever had about funny heartbeats, palpitations, odd feelings in the chest - I guarantee you are not the first person to have that fear, that feeling, that concern. There is an absolute treasure trove of information and support to read through on this site. It's just a matter of believing it.

I've come a long way with my palpitations - I get ectopics every day, every minute, and perhaps they will never go away. I also have an irregular heartbeat (permanent t-wave inversion - no-one knows why) and I no longer let these things get to me. Okay, I have my moments, and I get that they are uncomfortable and not very nice, but I really don't care about them most of the time. And if I can get to that stage, so can you! :)
