Distracting ADD / ADHD Debates and Arguments

I have a request to my fellow Bloggers, and other people with an online presence in the ADD / ADHD Community! 

Before you post something that stirs up controversy or sparks a debate can you PLEASE think about how distracting this can be to your audience. Those of us affected by ADD / ADHD have enough distractions to fight off already! We also have enough negativity in our lives already too!

So please, the next time you send out a newsletter, write a blog post, post a Facebook Update or Tweet something, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ask yourself how the content is really going to affect your audience! 

Thank You!

    Good reminder, Tara. Its important to try to keep things respectful and as positive as can be, and to try to stay away from being purposefully inflammatory.
    I hope you can find time to post some practical hints on how readers may filter out distracting internet content. I think ADHD blogs, no matter how respectful and careful they may be, always will contain content that is distressing and distracting to some, depending on previous life experiences.
    I will start with the one I can think of, which is: Don’t feed trolls.
