At the same time I think a thread like this is valuable. Disagreements are terrific when they lead to a dialogue instead of an arguement; A good discussion with a few different views and opinions on the topic in the long run is helpful to everyone.
While some will choose to keep their problems a secret, and see how it plays out, hopefully they'll also see how important it is to have health and travel insurance when traveling abroad.
