I personally think that trolls would appear to be the least of the worries. You can ignore them or whatever. Seems like it's fellow nurses we should all be scared of.
    Well in those two examples, they WERE fellow nurses yes, but I was only using that as evidence that identifying users here and being held to what you say here CAN effect your "non-cyber" life, because some people were poo-pooing that idea as paranoia.

    Yes, we as nurses can do that do each other, so don't you think that NON nurses would be just as, if not, more willing?

    I'm very confused by all of this.

    Do I have this straight....someone (or maybe more) posted on this bb and was fired for what he/she said?? Is that right?

    If so, how did the employer figure out who said what? Did the poster talk at work? Did the poster sign his/her real name? Did the poster discuss a patient by name?

    As for tracking any poster by their e-mail address. That information could only be provided by the server. I know AOL doesn't give out that information without a subpoena.

    So how did this all happen?

    Then why don't you allow other users to email or PM you? Spammers? Um, yeah.

    You obviously don't know the people that got burned here, so the how's and why's aren't really relevant to you. You ask lots of questions.

    I smell a ratfink.

    you know, if there is one thing i have come to know about big daddy is that he does not tolerate blatant displays of unprofessional behavior on this board.
    i'm confident that any lurkers and undesirables will be dealt with swiftly and professionally.... that is if we don't get to them first....
    how does that one song go......."tell it like it is......let your conscience be your guide.......tell it like it is....." :chuckle

    Hmmmm. I'm not your dear.

    You asked a question that I don't feel the answer to is any of your business. I'm hostile because the place and the people I hold dear are being threatened, and I'm angry about it.

    I think it's a shame that we have to be so paranoid here, but I'm glad to see that we're getting good at sniffing these people out. I haven't checked so many profiles and read so many old posts since I've been here!
