It is With Sadness I Write This - page 3

It is with sadness I post this thread, for the time has come when some nurse siblings are acting with emotion instead of their heads. We are a family of professionals me and you, and I enjoy posting... Read More

    I come here to see what others are thinking and often disagree, but that is OK, because everyone's opinion is of equal value here. I think it is great we have this board to express ourselves. I try to temper angry responses and when I fail, I appreciate and respect our mods' intervention. They do an awesome job in allowing this board to remain stimulating enough to hold interest without squashing indvidual opinion.

    sbic,

    Just so we come to an understanding; I have no objection whatsoever to a debate. In fact another board member who we all know very well can testify to that. She and I had differences of opinion on another website we both belong to, and both appreciated the knowledge gained from it. The key is to not attack the individual. That is what was happening here, and is the reason I wrote my message in the first place.

    May we all live in peace and harmony.
    Written with love,

    Sometimes it is hard to address an opinion without bringing the individual into it.

    I think also different people are of different sensibilities. Personally I haven't been bothered very much at all by the "attacking" I've seen here. In fact I haven't seen that much at all, compared to the literally hundreds of posts here. But perhaps I'm too thick skinned having spent my childhood and adolences as an outcast. You, being the on the sensitive side are saddened.

    Maybe you should look at how you are judging the board, trying to make it something it's not, are you not subtly under the guise of "love" attacking the bb and certain people in it? This bb is not, nor ever will be, a happy loving place. Too many people from diverse background, too many hot topics to discuss.

    Relax. Don't be sad.

    Respectfully,

    As a newer member, I have been reading quite a bit, but refrained from posting too much until I get to know the people here better. I have seen some negativity here, but I have seen a great deal more kindness and support. There are negative people in our lives, here, at work, and in our social circles. We cannot change these people, only the way we react to them. If I am upset by something that is said here, Iit is my choice to respond or ignore it.
