A few key things to remember when posting:

  • Talk about the people on the show as the individuals they are.  That is, do not extrapolate their actions or behaviors onto any other assumed or actual like groups.  The participants do not represent all obese people or any other group that they may be part of.  They are unique unto themselves.  
  • Should they be revealed to have specific health conditions or receive any form of government assistance this may be discussed solely as it applies to them and only if it applies to them.  Do not assume they receive benefits unless it is stated explicitly on the show. We're here to talk about a TV show only. 
  • Say what you like about the folks on the show, but try to avoid comments that use terms that are often thrown at fat (or not really fat) persons.  Many people heard these terms throughout their lives.  Let's limit collateral damage.  
  • In line with the point above, do not compare the show participants to animals or dehumanize them.  They are people.  Again, there is collateral damage. 
  • As always, no politics and be civil to your fellow posters. 

If you have questions regarding these directives, please PM the forum Mod @PrincessPurrsALot.
