Zero Tolerance On Spamming And Advertising Of Products On This Board by chaircover: 11:24am On Nov 16, 2012
This is the health board and as the name suggests a place where people can visit to learn about their illnesses discuss with other people who are suffering the same illness and exchange ideas etc. This is NOT a market place for herbal products, services, medical devices etc etc

It is also a place where people can hear/learn about breakthroughs in medicine and science, and generally broaden their knowledge on what is happening in the medical world today.

I am tired of hiding posts and appealing to people to stop spamming the board with all sorts of "so called miracle herbal drugs, services and medical devices etc" and the moderators, admin and the spambot will start banning people who insist on doing this.

People should stop playing on peoples vulnerability & helplessness just because they are ill and desperate for a cure . . . . .(I am sure that no one here will pray that a loved one is ripped off too)

. . . . . and people suffering from various aliments too should get wise and visit their doctor/local hospital/do proper research before falling for these so called "herbal one table cures all miracles".

The mods on this section are committed to keeping this board clean and to protect vulnerable people from loosing any money on things that dont work, have not been tested or are not safe.

If as a seller you are sure of your product, then please take it to the Nairaland Adverts section and not here.

Thank you for your co operation.

This thread is long overdue. I've been meaning to start something similar myself. The number of scammers that prowl this section is quite disturbing. The mods and spambots can't ban/hide all of the posts of these offenders. Some still manage to getaway with their quackery, duping unsuspecting people in the process.
I've recieved numerous complaints from people on how they were conned or how theIr conditions worsened as a result of using these medications. I still don't know how some people sleep at night.

Dear health section posters, it all lies in your hands. Don't let your desperation cloud your judgement. We can only stop the scammers that are within our grasp. Some of them fly under our rader and are able to achieve their wicked purpose because YOU let them.! Please please and please, if by any means you want to contact anybody here for cure for your aliment, do as much background research as possible. Ask as many questions as possible and don't pay money to anybody's account unless you've had some level of physical contact. Most importantly, DON'T patronise these people! 90% of them are quacks and the remaining 10% will recommend you to a doctor if its beyond their control.

our well-being is very important. We should help one another in areas where we can and not see anybody's plight as a meal ticket.

We can also use this thread as a meduim to share experiences with these so-called health experts. Could be positive or negative. This way, We can seperate those that are for real from the charlatans. Would have shared some of the complaints i recieved(with complainant's anonymity) but can't access my mail for now.

Cheers

Thank you to those who have respected the forum rules, however there are still a few diehards who still insist on advertising their one minute wonder drugs.

We will continue to hide them and its just a waste of everyones time.
Re: Zero Tolerance On Spamming And Advertising Of Products On This Board by healthcons: 3:47am On Dec 16, 2012
what if someone recomends a product for one particular illness. Is it allowed? because most of my posts were hide just because i recomend a product from GNLD. I believe Gnld is a well known company. There product is effective and NAFDAC approved. So why do you need to hide my posts.
Re: Zero Tolerance On Spamming And Advertising Of Products On This Board by chaircover: 6:39am On Dec 16, 2012
There is an advert section on NL where people who want to sell their products can advertise. The health section is not a marketplace.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Thank you for your co-operation.
People post on the health section just for them to know the solution to their illness. If it is true that you want to help them, you only hide post if only the recomend products were not from a well known company or not NAFDAC approved.
Pls, don't joke with people's life, time and money.
Re: Zero Tolerance On Spamming And Advertising Of Products On This Board by dominique(f): 2:11pm On Dec 16, 2012
^^^ even the doctors on this board don't just recommend medication anyhow. people come here mostly to seek advice and broaden their knowledge. There's no way to verify the autenticity of medicines advertised here, its safer if those adverts are hidden or removed. I absolutely agree with you on not joking with peoples lives.

how can people take medication 'recommended' from a non medical person, everybody's body is different - i'm not allergic to penicillin but my daughter is - u get the point i am trying to make.

if we had a proper health service in nigeria people wouldn't have green light to be advertising their rubbish here

Thank you, chaircover. I hope that the usually obstinate nairalanders will listen.
Re: Zero Tolerance On Spamming And Advertising Of Products On This Board by chaircover: 7:44am On Jan 02, 2013
They are gradually getting the message. They spend 10 minutes writing out a post/thread and I use 5 seconds to delete them lipsrsealed

There are many avoidable deaths in Nigeria today because people dont take responsible care of their health and by the time they seek proper medical attention its sometimes too late and the money they are running away from spending, they will end up spending 10 times more at the end of the day.

U better be coming here and sharing your medical knowledge here instead of fighting all your NL rivals on the family section who keep on trying to snatch saga, cooger & OAM4Allgirls from you.

You will be more appreciated here and no one will steal 48 pack agaba from you here. Dont worry I will ban anyone who dares flash eyelashes at agaba grin

Look forward to reading your posts kiss

I dont really understand what you are trying to say! but from what I gather from your previous posts, You sell herbal drugs so I am assuming that you are saying that not all drugs are fake which I agree with, however I am sure that you agree with me also that a lot of these advertised drugs dont work and people are not only just wasting their money but also risking thier lives too.

Nice one...I once did 'bebeto' by posting b4 i read the rules, but thank God I wasn't rude to the mod who I complained too- and she was tactful in her replies...I respect that a lot, and I since have an esteemed image of her.

I think anyone who wants to advertise shud use the adverts section as they've stated earlier.. Sometimes Paid Advertising is better for ur Bottom line than free ads, besides all u get with free oftentimes is just a little publicity, which seldom brings in the $$.

If U are serious about ur business, follow the rules.

Moderator you say zero tolerance on spamming. So why dont you permanently ban the oduduwa spambot that goes about spamming the health board with different ids?

You hide his posts then ban him for two days then after those two days the virus is back spamming again!
