Nov 13, '02Occupation: Nurse Joined: Aug '99; Posts: 364; Likes: 1There are people on this board who just like to instigate trouble. They don't even need a controversial thread to do this. I know others choose to use the ignore feature. I choose not to because I become too confused when reading other posts in relation to ignored posts. (Also I have to admit I get a little to curious) I think I just choose to not comment on the posts that need to response. If people begin to get into a flame war I stay out of it.
This Board is made up of 1000's of nurses. All of whom come from very different backgrounds. If you put 1000's of nurses in to a room together you would probably get the same bickering as we get here. This is human nature.
This board tends to go through cycles of everybody getting along and then someone gets bored with all the nicey nicey and gets everyone all worked up again. Didn't we just go through this a month or so ago????
Nov 13, '02Joined: Oct '02; Posts: 1,079; Likes: 53Now I recall some raucous stuff here lately where the second amendment was quoted and misquoted a few times. My favorite amendment is not the second but the first. I may not agree with many of you but I will defend to the death your right to disagree with me. And what about that part about gathering in groups peaceable.. Isnt that what we're doing here? Far out, Baby!

Amazing how imaginations soar.
Look to the lower right corner of a post [Report this post to a moderator]. When a thread gets out of hand all you need to do is click that to call it to attention.
The reason my post appeared on student nursing is I forgot to change forums before I hit the SUBMIT key. No other reason.
If we get a report we MUST respond. I can't tell you who because I don't remember. Other than the outright advertising or pornography that is removed immediately, each report is carefully considered.
A lot of words just to say, please watch what you type.

Ditto and WOW to all that you stated. I just reread your post and am needing to comment that I am so proud and pleased to be in such fine company... thank you for articulating what I have felt frustrated with...
Well I might say the same about you, and thank you!
