  1. Did you join? I am willing to join almost any network, but this scares me! Not because of privacy, but I would get hypochondriac by talking with people about illness. I am sticking with doctors.

  2. LOL. Sticking to doctors sounds reasonable :) Yet, social hypochondriacs is probably the best group of people to consult with after medical doctors. It's a known fact that in our brave new world avid medic readers can sometimes leverage their cross-subject understanding and come up with some directions normal doctors can never know about. I think I'll start using this network next time I'll be after some "latest" medic info. Yet, my username will of course remain private... :)
