Hostile Post's

  1. I know this can be a stressful time of year, and we as nurse's are all under our own kind of work stress....but I have noticed that we are seeing many
    hostile, accusitory and angry post's here on this web site and to me it is disturbing. Am I the only one who has picked up on this ?

    Looking at the hundreds of posts today and the past few days, I'm not going to let a few bother me.

    (But yes, it seems we mods have been extra busy lately and you should see the ones that have been removed. LOL)

    This time of year is filled with stressors for many people, and users of this site are not immune to the financial, emotional, marital, and overall stressful issues of everyday life.

    I know that personal problems are not valid excuses to flame websites and point the accusatory finger, but I can understand what might be fueling the fire.

    I haven't, really. But then, I come from NYC and people not from there often think I'm mad when I'm not. Just a way of expressing oneself.

    My aunt's a flight attendant & she just said that to me over Christmas. Something to the affect of, "New Yorkers aren't rude...they just tell it like it is...they're just efficient!"

    By the way, I did think I had noticed a few more nasty posts, too.

    I think they're just trolls. We'd better just ignore them.

    Sometimes I get the impression that posters are being a little harsh in their use of language, but I am biased because instead of being thin skinned, I have absolutely no skin. And I make this observation most of the time. I just look for pearls of wisdom in everything people have to say and take some things with a grain of salt. I try to be as nice as I can but nobody can be that diplomatic all the time.

    I hadn't noticed it. Yes, people are imperfect and less than tactful at times. So what's new?
