The PBCers chat room is NOT moderated, but we do have at least
one volunteer host in our room during scheduled chats.
Chat room hosts are PBC patients, NOT medical professionals.
Discussions are based on chatters personal experiences and views.
All scheduled chats are Eastern Time.
Please join chat room with your Name and State initials or
Country outside US (such as Mary-KY, JuneCa, Alice-Canada). This allows us
to get to know one another. Changing nicknames in the chat room causes confusion,
so please refrain from doing this.
The chat room is open 24/7. Although our chat room host is
only there during scheduled chats, the room is available during nonschedule
times for private, committee and other chats.
We hope to maintain a friendly environment where we offer help,
support and friendship to PBCers, family members or friends.
Maintain communication of mutual respect, being polite and
respectful to others as if you were talking in person.
Although our chat room is mainly to discuss
PBC, we also encourage other PBC related topics and having fun. Laughter
can be the best medicine. We do not
discuss Politics, Religion, Race or Sexual Preference.
Please read the PBCers Organization
Any questions, problems, or requests for assistance to gain
access to the PBCers Chat room, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks to our chat room hosts who give their time and
energy to help other PBCers.
