      Umm..Jim.. I do believe everything she talked about was entirely on topic.

      I mean, over on the OTBB, we talk about sweet 16 parties and imaginary superpowers and ..dogs, both hot dogs and labradoodles.

      There is hardly a better place on the web to discuss the emotional fallout of a melanoma diagnosis than right here. And that emotional fallout occurs for patients of all stages, and all of their loved ones.

      I can only imagine, that you yourself have been experiencing a bit of such fallout, which might go a little ways toward explaining your response.

      But the off topic board is hardly the place to discuss how to cope with a diagnosis.

      It's more like the place to go to discuss Jimmy Johnson being on the next season of Survivor..
