Do you ever get concerned about certain users on here?

  1. 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?

    There are all sorts on here, CrustyOldBats like me, snowflakes who sometimes melt, sometimes turn into diamonds, SJWs (yes Emergent, I had to look it up too ), trolls who like to stir up trouble, younger nurses who run the gammet from solid to entitled to overly-self-confident. And everything in between.

    Some seem a little unstable (okay, a lot); some confrontational, some tired of the same old complaints (talk about your knee jerk reactions at times, guilty of that myself time or two), and some just wanna have fun.

    If you're concerned about someone PM them or respond to their original post.

    Are you trying to bait members to talk about other members here?

    I'm quite unstable, and thanks for noticing.

    Hello! I've attempted to pm but only thing that comes back is instability.

    Meh. For all we know those types are unwashed trolls living in mom's basement at 37.

    The ones I DO worry about are the ones who are super-active for long periods of time and then just -poof -disappear. The Commuter springs to mind.

    Exactly my thought as well.

    Having been involved with groups on the interwebs since inception I have learned that's true more often that one would think. Never ever understood how creating an alter persona as a form of entertainment, much less indulging in troll-induced flame wars. Okay, been guilty of trolled into (many) discussions no matter how much I try to be like baby goat.

    And this confirms my suspicions. OP, gossiping about colleagues is unprofessional and unbecoming.

    I don't worry about anyone here. It's just a forum.

    There are a few people who have indicated from their posts that they have mental health challenges. I wish them good luck.

    I don't have the time or inclination to get wrapped up in anyone's life here. I do miss The Commuter though.

    Yep. I agree with you. Sounds like someone's trying to sow discord. Enough of that.
