    A natural friendly off-topic is o.k. with me. Usually when things stray back into the "forbidden topics" like "..........well if everyone had a BSN this wouldn't be an issue....." is when we scream to get back on topic.

    I whole heartedly agree with that this sight would be horribly boring if we all agreed. But wouldn't it be great if when we disagree we can somehow communicate that disagreement by disagreeing with the ideas and not flaming the individual and by allowing them to be who they are with their own thoughts and ideas as crazy as they are? It's an art unfortunately not everyone who registers here has. As much as we want to say..........."you stupid arrogant SOB, you are wrong wrong and more wrong.........", we just can't.

    I'm with you guys who love the hot topics. I can't tell you how many times I've been one of those "dang.........just when it's getting good they close it." There have been a few times a thread was being closed while I was typing a long response only to not be able to get my last two cents in.........grrrrr.
    Another good hot topic is 'Importing milions and trillions of foreign nurses into the country'-thats always a good debate. I have to tie my hands behind my back and use a fire extinugisher on the key board becasue I am typing too fast..........................then I remember I am moderator and I am sure a few of those expressions may get me banned

    I'm no mod but I don't trust myself to reply well to that topic either, I usually steer well clear!

    I think a BSN should be a mandatory entry to practice for Moderators. What do y'all think? :trout: :smackingf

    Excellent idea. Also I think we need more male moderators, the reason there's problems with the moderators is because they are so catty because they are female, and they eat their young.

    Men do tend to think more logically...I've liked every male supervisor I've had much better than any female supervisor I've ever had...you just might be on to something.

    No way. I've never liked men supervisors. They're too egotistical. I can deal with catty, give me catty any day.

    No, moderators such as myself can not read private PMs. The owner and administrators however can, a right they rarely exercise, if at all, and only with good reason.

    Your brother sounds cool.
