      GUIDELINES FOR MESSAGE BOARD, CHAT & BLOGS. **RELIGIOUS/POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED**   11/02/2007

      Please Follow The Power Surge Message Board, Insta-Chat And Blog Guidelines   This is the newest of numerous Power Surge message boards. The board is divided into individual subjects or Forums. We recommend you first look around, familiarize yourself with the new format and features. Select subjects of interest to you and post to your heart's content, but please read these guidelines before posting.   When you registered for these boards, the "default" was set to leave your E.mail address "private." We do so for your privacy and protection. However, if you chose to make your E.mail address public, you do so at your own discretion. Should you decide to make your E.mail address private, click on MY CONTROLS on the menu at the top of each screen and under Options select E.mail Settings.You can change the option to keep your E.mail address public or private. Should you desire to get in touch with someone whose E.mail is private, you can send them a Private Message or "PM" by clicking on "PM" at the bottom left (under their user name) of that person's posted messages.   Under NO circumstances will Power Surge EVER give out anyone's E.mail address or personal information. Please read Privacy Statement.   Guidelines:   1) This is a public forum. Please conduct yourself in the same courteous, respectful manner you would in any public arena.   2) MESSAGES AND/OR MEMBER PROFILES LINKING TO COMMERCIAL, RELIGIOUS, E-COMMERCE, PORNOGRAPHIC, OTHER MENOPAUSE SITES AND/OR ANY OFFENSIVE SITES ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED AND WILL BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY.   3) NO ADVERTISING. Messages advertising products, or linking to Web sites selling these products and services are not permitted - including other menopause sites. This means not only blatant advertising, but the advertising that seeks out women in need of help, endears them to the poster (seller) with their guarantees for success with a product. Beware of those asking you to E.mail them for more information.   4) Messages requesting participation in and information for books, newspaper, magazine articles, school papers, surveys or theses are not permitted.   5) Profanity and/or crude language are not permitted on the board, in insta-chat and in the blogs, nor are links to sites containing pornography or anything offensive. Anything deemed to be inappropriate or harmful for viewing by children will be removed from these boards immediately. There have often been children or young relatives of women going through menopause looking for information to better understand, or to find information for relatives who may not be on the Internet.   6) Please do not harass or attack other participants. Messages of a confrontational manner are not permitted and will be removed at the discretion of the Board Administrator. Continual harassment of any other member will result in the termination of your username. If you take issue with the nature or theory of a message, address the theory, but do not attack the person proposing the theory.   7) Multiple member names are not permitted use on these message boards. Masquerading as more than one person, or as a person of the opposite gender is strictly prohibited. User names with "Doctor," "Dr." or "M.D." are not permitted to post on this board. Unless Power Surge is associated with a doctor or other health care practitioner, we have no way of knowing if you actually are a doctor, who you are and/or what your medical credentials or beliefs are. Our health care practitioners can be found in Ask The Experts, in the Transcript Library, and in articles in the Educate Your Body area of the Web site. If you are a doctor who wishes to be associated with Power Surge, please contact us at this link. Thank you.   8) Those found to be harvesting E.mail addresses from these message boards for the purpose of selling products or sending out spam will have their account/username terminated immediately. Power Surge does not share E.mail addresses of our members with anyone. We do not sell or share your E.mail address or any information you provide during registration with anyone else.   9) This is not a religious site nor political site. This is a non-sectarian and non-partisan community. We are women from every ethnic background. This community respects everyone's personal beliefs; however, discussions about, references to and proselytizing (i.e., "Turn to God, he will heal you," "In the name of Jesus Christ, amen," etc.), about religion and links to religious sites are prohibited. The same holds true for political discussions.   10) Messages which do not comply with the Power Surge Message Board Guidelines will be removed at the discretion of the Board Administrator and members who disregard our guidelines may be banned from future participation without notice.   11) This message board can be read by anyone. It is also indexed by the various search engines. Avoid posting anything too personal, such as real name, address, telephone number, or anything you wouldn't want someone to read on the Internet.color>   12) When new members sign up for the message boards, they are automatically sent an E.mail validation letter from Power Surge. E.mail addresses must be validated, or the member won't have access to many features on the board including the inability to post. If the E.mail address they registered with is not a valid one, their username will be deleted.   13) It is strictly prohibited to reproduce or reprint copyright material -- articles, images (photos, avatars, icons), poetry, or any other copyrighted material from any Web site, newspaper, magazine, newsletter or any other written format. Any such reproductions will be removed by the board administrator. This constitutes copyright infringement.   14)Do not hotlink to images on other Web sites. Hotlinking is posting a URL to an image on another site in order for that image to appear on Power Surge. Even the alleged "free" clipart Web sites have their own terms and conditions -- one of which is: DO NOT LINK TO IMAGES ON OUR WEB SITE. Be sure to read the Terms of Use on ANY site that claims their images are free, including royalty free.   15) It is strictly prohibited to reproduce or reprint any material found on Power Surge on another Web site, in any newsletters, newspapers, magazines, or any written format, or at any public menopause groups, seminars, meetings without the express permission of Power Surge. Doing so without permission constitutes copyright infringement and will be dealt with legally.   16) Men are welcome in Power Surge and may post messages and start topics in the forum created especially for them, Men, This One Is For You! Since this is a site for women, and many women have expressed their discomfort with men interjecting comments into their personal discussions as many of their discussions may be regarding very personal and intimate issues they don't openly choose to discuss with the men in their lives, or any men, please post only in the above forum. Since men can read anything on the board, if there's a forum discussing a particular subject you'd like to comment on, feel free to create a similar topic in the forum specifically created for men. Thank you.   17) If anyone takes exception to these guidelines, please do not discuss it on the boards or in insta-chat. Messages of such nature will be removed at the discretion of the board administrator. If you wish to comment on these guidelines, you can contact us through the contact page.   18) Power Surge reserves the right to edit or delete any message that violates the guidelines of this board.   If you have any questions about these guidelines or how these message boards work, first check out the HELP area at the top of every page. If you can't find an answer to your question, visit the Board/Site Info, Questions, Problems topic or Contact Us Here and INCLUDE YOUR USERNAME AND THE SPECIFIC NATURE OF YOUR PROBLEM.   Thank you for your cooperation. We hope you enjoy the Power Surge Message Board. For newsletters, guest transcripts, FAQ's, resources, polls, Ask The Experts and a whole host more, be sure to visit the entire Power Surge Web site. To get back to the Main Board at any time, click on Power-Surge Forums on the menu at the top of each page.   We'd love to meet you, so do stop by and introduce yourself on our Welcome, Introduce Yourself topic.   This Web site and these boards are a haven for support and friendship. They are NOT for salespeople pushing products. ADVERTISING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED ON THIS MESSAGE BOARD, IN THE CHAT AREAS, IN THE BLOGS AND IN YOUR PROFILES/PERSONAL SIGNATURES. color>   Thank you!

Answers Your Questions about Revival Soycolor>color>

Director of Physicians Laboratories, developers of
Revival Soy Protein,
doctor developed phytoestrogen treatment for menopause, hot flashes, fatigue, heart and bone health and cancer.

Menopause is part of the natural aging process for women. Decreasing levels of estrogen production by the ovaries as women age cause many unpleasant symptoms, most commonly hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain and vaginal dryness.

Lack of estrogen also predisposes a woman to heart disease, osteoporosis (bone loss) and memory problems. Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the replacement of the body's lost estrogen with prescription estrogens derived from a variety of sources including equine (horse), plant-based and lab synthesized compounds.

HRT has been shown to decrease menopausal symptoms, reduce risk of heart disease and help keep bones strong. Unfortunately, numerous studies have also shown that HRT increases risk of breast cancer, endometrial (uterine) cancer and blood clots, and has numerous side-effects like weight gain, bloating, irritability and nausea.

Over 85% of American women refuse to start or continue HRT for fear of increased cancer risks. ?Breast cancer survivors can't take HRT either.

This has left millions of women looking for alternatives.

Many medical doctors are now recommending soy protein as a safe, effective alternative to alleviate menopausal symptoms, protect the heart and maintain bone health, without increasing the risk of breast cancer, endometrial cancer or blood clots. In fact, many women healthcare leaders are calling soy the "perfect alternative" to HRT.

Soy Protein and isoflavones are recommended by theThe American Heart Association and theFood and Drug Administration

Soy is a viable alternative to hormone Replacement Therapy.Soy works in the same manner as estrogen therapy.There are no risks involved in using soy phytoestrogens!

You can elimate hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings,depression, fatigue, anxiety, vaginal dryness, lowercholesterol, provide heart and bone health andprotect you from breast and endometrial cancer.

How do I get into the Chats? ?I type my name and password but I get a message saying my password is incorrect. ?I did change it from the original and the new one has worked to get onto the Boards. ?I don't know what my old one was otherwise I would have tried that too.:confused:Thanks.

I too had trouble... I got in,  but was unable to see, or read anything. And I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do when I wanted to leave?

I've never participated in chats before, so it was probably something I was doing wrong.

Hi Jean, No I haven't been in a "chat" before either but I was obviously doing something wrong. ?I couldn't get past first base. ?Is there somewhere we should "register" first since my password was not accepted? ?Hope Alice reads this so she can assist us.:confused:

Barbie, if you had never been in a chat before, you wouldn't have to type a password in at all. ?So, any password that you would have used would have been "wrong" because the chat software expected a blank there.

However, and this is a BIG however...with a community as big as Power Surge, someone else may have already registered the name Barbie so that they, and they alone, could use that name. ?They would have a password for that name and they would be "Barbie" whenever they logged in with the correct name/password combo.

Next time you want to go to the chat - or you can try now, if you want - try just Barbie with no password at all. ?If you get in, YOU can register the name if you want, then have the password of your choice.

If you don't get in, you'll have to choose another name.

To register your name/password, you need to be in the chatroom. ?Click on "Members" on the left, then choose your profile. ?The software will ask you if you want to register your name or not. Type in the password that you want - and remember it ?I don't think that there's any of retrieving it if you forget like there is here on the boards.

I hope that this is semi-clear :biggrin:

Hi

I have never been able to enter a chat. A message comes on that says "This application requires Java support". I take it, this means my computer is too old.  Since I cannot upgrade yet....i'll have to wait for the transcripts. We will be able to view the transcripts on this new board, I hope?   :confused:

Thanks MaryO. ?You were right, I checked it out and a lady called Barbara has registered as Barbie. ?It would have been nice to use my own name :( (yes, strange but true). ?Will people think it's me if she asks a question? ?Oh well, at least I know how to get into the Chat Room, thanks again. :)

I know that I answered the part about the transcripts before.

It's possible that someone just turned off the Java on your computer.  What version of Internet Explorer or Netscape are you running?  (Or something else?)  I know that it supposedly runs better with IE, but I always use Netscape with no trouble at all.

If you're running an older copy of a browser, all it might take is downloading (FREE!) a newer copy with Java running.  If it's a newer version already, it's probably just turned off or never enabled.

Barbie, do you read your E.mail? I sent mail to the E.mail address you gave when you registered for these message boards. After reading your message, I checked out the chat room member registry, created a new name and password for you to get into the chats with and E.mailed you the information.

Kindly advise if you received the E.mail.

Kari, I can't imagine that your computer is so old that you can't upgrade your browser. I've been using Internet Explorer and Netscape (plus AOL's browser) for years - even with older computers and was always able to use JAVA. Most of the new browsers automatically come with JAVA enabled.

Just out of curiosity, on the menu bar of your browser, you'll find the word "HELP" -- please click it on and then click on "ABOUT" and tell me which version of the browser you are using.

If it were me, I'd download a newer browser or call Microsoft or Netscape and find out how to resolve the problem. You can go to www.downloads.com (where I download all my software). Under Internet select ?browsersand you can choose from Internet Explorer or Netscape (depending upon which one you use).

Dearest and MaryO

Thank you both for all the tech help. I had my daughter read both of your posts (since i'm not that computer savvy) and she figured out what to do. She told me to stay off the computer while she downloaded Java for me....and now I can get into the chat room!  Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  :biggrin:   :biggrin:Thanks much!!!
