Not so much worried as aggravated. One very omnipresent poster in particular seems to go out of his/her way to get all "tough love" on people. So much so that I think there's more joy taken by them in being an anonymous hard-a$$ than in truly giving advice...
That being said, there are occasional posters that seem to be overwhelmed by life and/or lacking in coping skills- representative of the population in general, perhaps?

The only people I genuinely worry about on here are those obviously bigoted, hateful uber-right wing types that have no business being in healthcare. Like that psychiatric guy who hated gays, transgenders and women and said he'd beat his son if he was gay. Thankfully he got banned for his nasty views. The ones with the extreme views are the ones who truly scare me. Otherwise it's just regular ol' crazy folk. Luckily I don't care two hoots what people think of me!

As if the only bigoted, hateful people are on the political right?
Given the number of profiles who ONLY post on threads about women's issues or racial issues, Im sure he is probably still here and just using a new profile name.
I report them all.
If you are worried about these certain posters, maybe you should reach out to them directly. This sounds gossipy to me.

I mostly get concerned about the people who post the threads in the theme of "I've failed NCLEX 14 times but I'm still an excellent nurse!"
Did our own Davey D put you up to this?

I am fairly transparent, I have had friends and others figure out who I am. :) Never saw the point of a persona, who has time? But I have witnessed some extensive "multiple personalities" on another forum (not allnurses), the whole house of cards fell in when IP addresses were examined closely. There are some nut bars out there!
I have been a member since 2005, then became a guide, then a mod. I have met several AN members in person and adore them very much. :) So these folks are more than internet strangers as far as I am concerned.
I love this forum and tend to lurk more than post, but there's a couple of users here that sound a little unstable and I worry about them. I guess it's refreshing that not everyone posts how well nursing is for them, but just certain people I wonder about... anyone else feel this way?
Do you tend to bake more when you worry? What do you like to bake? :)
I worry about me! I spend waaaaay to much time here. I need to get a life .

I baked grain free, gluten free granola tonight and it was amazingly delicious.
I realize that no one asked me. But has that ever stopped me before now?
