    on the issue of vaccines I like to see a diary dedicated  to  family first hand experiences with vaccines; which would not allow judgmental comments of any kind;

    simple the stories from parents narrating their children's experience;  

    and if the diary requested that the comments not include DRAWING conclusions about the vaccines .....

    but imply relate first hand experiential information  THAT would be an interesting diary;

    I recall other parents I knew with children similar in age to mine so I've heard some first hand stories....

    but a diary without reactions and controversy... a plain diary of experiences would be helpful.... the amount of vaccines went up dramatically over the years since I had a young family and I'd like to know from parents what happened in their families ;

    •  If it were responded to proportionally (0+ / 0-)

      it would be 95% "my kid got all his vaccines on time, more or less, and there was no drama whatsoever but for the crying".

      Most of the rest would be people who didn't vaccinate.

        what I've suggested is a diary for people who did vaccinate - their first hand experience... no judgmental comments.... no conclusions from parents - just experience

        that have been missing from internet discussion of vaccination;

        the forums and diaries are controversy arguments tit for tat.....

        one diary with absolutely no tit for tat and only first hand experiences....

        that is needed IMV

        •  What I was trying to imply ... (0+ / 0-)

          is that no such thing is really possible.  People who vaccinated their kids with no ensuing drama whatsoever -- like myself and literally everyone I know -- have nothing to talk about.

          People who did have problems or believe that they did have everything to talk about.  You wind up with a huge circle-jerk where both problems that exist and problems that are only imagined are blown up out of all proportion and the vast majority of "ho hum, got the kid his shots, nothing more to say" never even turn up to speak.  It's an impossible thing you are asking.

          •  not really (0+ / 0-)

            you are calling collected narrative family stories 'knee jerk circle'

            that's why you do seem to understand the usefulness of a diary with no judgement, no put downs, no insults  - - only experiential stories;

              you do NOT understand the purpose of non judgement diary about vaccines for experiential narratives only
