Our Forum Guidelines require that we not mention any narcotic pain relievers. The purpose of the guideline is to avoid mention of drugs that are sought by drug addicts, and pain medication (as well as narcotic-like substances, e.g., pain medication) often fall into that realm. Some drug abusers frequent message boards like ours trying to find members who are on "good" drugs so that they can befriend them and perhaps make an interesting purchase or a surprise burglary. So we just skip around the topic by discussing pain medication in generic terms only.

We no longer allow medication lists in forum signatures, as it is both a privacy and safety issue.
