You are reading page 3 of Everyone Please Read. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I strongly agree that personal attacks are NEVER warranted and should not be allowed. but with the occasional word, with ******??? where are we drawing the line.......

Yes, this is not a free for all, this is Brians board, and we must accept his rules to participate... I agree...

But the gray area..... remains very gray.

It's very shameful to me that professionals need moderators, let alone so frequent reminders to behave.... and as our peers overseas have pointed out, ......

offensive is in the eye of the offended.

Offensive to one is not to another....yes, we read and agreed to TOS. Now any of the forums that I have been to and posted on, I have not seen anything that could be considered a personal attack or vicious debating...it has all been on the up and up. Yes, there have been inuendos and some off colour language but nothing that was offensive. So tis the best behavior from this red-headed step child...who shall remain politically correct and professional to help show respect for the moderators and the BB owner.:|

All I can say is thank you Brian and mods for strictly enforcing the TOS because it certainly needed to be done. The TOS are simple... Behave or be booted. Nuff said. ;)

I also agree.

ok, soap box.... have to say it... have counted to at least 100....

I joined this BB for support, an ear, friendships, resource and a sounding board of opinions of those who face the same day to day struggles that I do.... knowing that mine in NC are thes same across america, in canada the UK, in aussie... everywhere.....our jobs suck and we need each other.

This should be a place for people who are not getting something, whatever it is... where they are... to link up with people who can identify with them... across racial, cultural and continential borders.

Instead of being that support... at small intervals, this board can be nothing but the same petty back stabbing childish behaviors that we all have to put up with 36 plus hours a week which drive us to our home computers to link up with people who may see things differently and want more than that for ourselves, our pt's and our profession.

A recent off topic post.... has so my posts of insecurity and need to be part of the "accepted" that it has sunk my views of nursing to the deepest depthts... that here ..... should be a place of comrade.... and we continue to tear each other apart as to who is "irritating" ...... taking up so much peoples time... to figure out if they are on the "wrong list, and possibly not welcome in a place the they so very much needed.

So jumping off the soap box as the snipers prepare their flaming... but when will we agree to disagree and treat each other with respect.... and when will some of us grow the profanity up and learn that we are tearing our profession down..

and why do the rest of us tolerate it?

and why do we need moderators to tell us how to behave.

DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

um, I think many of the people that participated in "that thread" have since apologized and said that they were wrong.

So why does it still seem to come up, as if we are NOT "getting it?"

So, will our American "cousins" desist from using the word "Fanny" in future??!!! It REALLY IS VERY OFFENSIVE to us Australians. So you understand, here in Oz it is the word used ( slang) for the word; Vagina! And from what Queen Bess wrote, same in mother England!...

I'm sure we can ALL abide by the rules & show each other respect?!

Cheers,

Grace

Grace,

I had no clue about that word being offensive!! To answer your question..DEFINITELY. We want EVERYONE respected. However, it may be left up to you guys to let us know if something is considered offensive over there. I didn't know "bloody fools" was profane until this week.

thanks,

tracy

So, in other words, the mods are the ones patronising us then, by assuming that I'll be adversley affected by a swear word! :chuckle

To be pendantic, I could also say that you are censoring me by saying that I shouldn't "introduce polictical views". That's my right to discuss and give my opinion. Besides, I felt what I said was relevant in the context of what I find offensive. ie: what I see on the news I find MORE offensive than a couple of swear words, as political atrocities affect people's lives directly.

I shall say again: (:zzzzzzzz Sorry to bore!) If someone is being deliberatley targeted or being bullied, or if someone is being racist, this should be addressed. However, a few swear words? Give me a break!

To quote Claude Adrien Helvetius, "To limit the press is to insult a nation; to prohibit the reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves"

BB are made to express oneself in a proper format and I agree that all should respect each other. Allnurses is a great format and keep up the great work Brian!
