So I have been on allnurses now since may ,but have always been a behind the scenes lurker lol(I was too lazy to make an account). It is so sickening to me to see the SAME users attacking others. Whether it's about the PVT or just someone merely trying to calm their nerves by asking a question that may very well be dumb(it's their right). I have started really disliking this forum. We are supposed to be on here to uplift one another and support each other. Instead all I see are cyber cliques and internet buddies who use ALL NURSES as a platform to throw their "CYBER"weight around and discourage others. I am 100 % sure they know who they are and exactly what they are doing. This is the only place they can get attention and it makes them feel uber important/popular. This forum is like high school. EXCEPT we don't get to see the yearbook pictures lol. In other words,I notice the RUDEST,MOST DISRESPECTFUL, members have no real profile pics. I totally get it. I see you bullies and if you think this post is about you,YOU'RE RIGHT!

Just because we have different opinions doesn't mean we're rude.

Using caps locks (which is screaming) however, is considered rude.

I have seen bullies on AllNurses. I have also seen experienced, wise, and helpful individuals. It appears that many times when one disagrees with the OP with sage advice, there is a knee-jerk reaction that results in the OP accusing these "nay-sayers" of being ignorant, a bully, a disgrace to the human race, and many more insults. This has been the case more recently.

When the OP starts to hurl insults at individuals and make assumptions about their profession, that's when the OP finds the sarcastic responses. Respect is something that can be easily lost with a few immature, harsh insults. Just my opinion. Sorry that you have had a negative experience on AN. We do have great individuals lurking on the site.

Lol being that I am not aware of proper "cyber etiquette", nor do I consider myself a "cyber bully" all caps is like a cyber highlighter. My reply to the rest is A HIT DOG USUALLY HOLLERS THE LOUDEST.(No screaming lol,but I'm sure you catch my drift).And I'm pretty sure more will respond. This is a forum and I am merely saying what a ton of others are thinking. Have a blessed night

@Nursebaddie83 If you want to use a "highlighter" use italics or bold functions, there is no reason to yell. No one is going to take you as seriously when you are screaming at them.

I 100 % agree that there are some awesome people on this sight. I have always had positive feedback on here. So this thread isn't necessarily my experience. I don't come on here as often as I used to because the same members are attacking others and its not right. Disagreeing is one thing, being rude, obnoxious, and coming off as God's gift to nursing and mankind is another. It is what it is. I just wanted to say something, because I have a right to that. Respect lost is of no importance on this forum. This is the internet and standing up for myself means more to me than being apart of a cyber clique of people I will never meet or care to for that matter. I knew I would ruffle a few feathers with this post and I don't care. This site has the same members attacking others day in and day out. Have they lost respect for being mean and rude for no reason? Exactly. You have a blessed night

No one uses real pictures on their profiles because it violates the terms of service to post on this website.

The unfortunate thing is that, on an online site, there is no way to perceive tone via text. Some people's post may come across as "rude" because they respond with a blunt comment.

And actually, I disagree that respect is of no importance. You never know, you may find yourself making professional connections on AN (it's not unheard of). Or you could be identified by potential employers/coworkers if you reveal enough about yourself. In those cases, your post history and character will become very relevant.

Wow, lol. Who are you to tell me how to post my comments? Who uses the internet to communicate on forums that much? I personally use it for other things like online shopping and bill pay,instagram or twitter. I am sorry I am not on here belittling people so much I know all caps is screaming lol. You guys are hilarious. I am sure you will get tons of thumbs up for these comments. I am not seeking approval from anyone on this forum. Not to the extent of wanting to be taken seriously.All nurses has always been an awesome site to me, and it is merely my opinion that there are cliques and bullies.Who am I though right? I'm actually shocked you responded at all lol. I had others in mind but again I guess if the shoe fits,we lace it up. I prefer heels though. You enjoy your night hun,I'm over it.

Respect is given as it is received. I made a thread about bullies on here because I just read a post earlier with a member being attacked by the same people. This is nothing to do with anything personally I have experienced. I am posting on what I have observed since I have been on here as a member. I expected everything that is happening right now.This is the type of post I expect backlash on.It is a touchy subject.Nobody wants to be called out. It's strange though when people ask questions they genuinely want an answer to that they are made to feel stupid or dumb. I don't expect anyone to care,or agree,or respect what I am saying. This is my opinion,and I am entitled to it. We all are entitled to our own opinions.Period
