How many times have you read a thread where some poor soul new member cried desperately for help and members responded with information, advice, and support only never to hear from that member again?

I always notice that and it is especially irksome when the thread gets interesting and the OP is never heard from again. Sometimes one likes some feedback or closure, as they say.

Some of those I attribute to people not being told what they want to hear. People post stuff with the expectation that the interwebs will validate their position. Those type posters tend to "poof" when that doesn't happen. The don't want advice or opinion, they want agreement.

*disclaimer* ...by liking my post I don't interpret this as a validation of my self worth or decision making process :laugh: ;)

Say, that reminds me...

Former lead singer of the 80's band "A Flock Of Seagulls", Mike Score,

made a post on the website AllOneHitWonders.com...

It stated "Do you all think our hair was just way too big in the 80's?

Because I really don't think that our hair was THAT big."

He apparently didn't like the answers he got, because he never logged

back in.

Former lead singer for Kajagoogoo, Limahl, commented "You hair was

way bigger than ours, mate".

"Help, my preceptor keeps saying I have poor communication skills, and also I have issues with taking direction! To top it off today one of my coworkers actually said I'm inconsiderate of others!"

So, yeah. But sometimes the thread turns into a rousing extravaganza anyway.

This is the best comment on the internet today. Thank you for that laugh.

I don't have anything cogent to add on the subject, but the title of this thread gave me a welcome Friday morning chuckle...

Lots of threads in which the new member seagulls, and lots in which the new member comes back to complain bitterly and snark at long-time members about getting responses and advice that weren't what s/he was hoping to hear.

All.

The.

Time.

I am especially curious about the "Should I attend ? "to which experienced caring people try to warn them from making a huge mistake and the inevitable SST (scammy 'school' troll) plant assures them all is well and that we know not of what we speak.

How about the threads such as 'Should I have a baby in nursing school or after?'.

Such life decisions should always be based on advice by strangers on the internet...

"What graduate degree should I get?"

"Should I leave my boyfriend/husband?"

"Should I go into nursing?"

"What graduate degree should I get?"

"Should I leave my boyfriend/husband?"

"Should I go into nursing?"

When I read those posts, a multitude of snarky responses come into my head. Please permit to list a few of them here, just to have the momentary satisfaction of posting them.

Question #1: "Any degree you want. Just don't ask me to pay for it -- and don't come crying to me if it doesn't lead you to your fantasy career."

Question #2: "Yes, leave your boyfriend/husband. He sounds like a loser. I would rather be alone that have to spend my life with a jerk like that." ... or ... "No, you should stay with him because you sound as if you are going to need someone to pay your bills for the rest of your life. You seem incapable of taking care of yourself."

Questin #3: "Probably not. Nurses need to smart, strong and committed. You appear to be none of those things."

Thank you.
