Members are allowed to place their Instant Messaging information (Yahoo, MSN, ICQ) in their profiles. The CancerForum *discourages* the use of IMs to ask questions that would better serve our community if asked on the board so that many others could answer and/or benefit from the answers. However, we recognize the community building value of Instant Messages.

There is a danger of Instant Messaging to be a source of spam. In order to minimize that danger, if you try to contact another member or administrator, please, in you first message, give you username of CF so that we will know that you are not spamming.
