i've read on soooooooooo many different forums and threads that we, at allnurses, share our personal opinions here without having to suffer the abusive overtones of others for saying what we personally believe about a certain topic.
the truth that i am personally
finding out here is this:
we are not
allowed to share our own personal feelings without ducking under a chair
for fear of the "retorts" coming back at us for what we share and/or believe in.
what's up with this "double talk"??? how mature can we really be with one another, allnurses members??? does maturity even live here anymore in those of you who do not respect others personal comments and opinions??? is it necessary to always have a nasty comeback when someone here shares something from their own personal perspective as to how they personally view a certain thing???
someone else asked if we were responsible as nurses for practicing what we teach. some said "yes".....others said "no".
why can't we let our "yes" be yes.....and our "no" be no.....share our personal opinion on the topic or question being posed...from our own personal perspective....then move on without tearing down something someone else shared in their previous post comments????
either some "snide remark" is directed to someone else's comments, or the person's character or choice of beliefs becomes the target of attack.
that behavior is not mature!
so......how long do we need to be members here before we come to mature in the fact that we all have personal opinions that can be shared without some having the need to attack what someone personally shares on a subject matter??????????? i really really want to know........and i have no doubt that many others would like to know this too......lurkers, posters, and all.
thank you for sharing your personal comments
on this topic without
attacking one another's personal comments. let's see how well we do here on this topic. prove we can behave maturely and professionally without destruction of one another's personal beliefs. i, for one, bet we can't all
do it! bet starting now......time.....1316 hour cst...go!!!

i have seen it before too. personally, i have seen others start a thread with "it's my personal opinion" and they still have been "attacked".
i sometimes think we read some threads and get too emotionally involved (myself included at times) and respond without thinking it is not a personal attack and this too is normal. some do not ever want to be wrong, is another way of looking at it too.
i have come to realize that all will not behave in a mature manner(on certain threads that the given individual thinks maturity should be or should not be) and i feel some will do as others expect or want them to do and i for the most part, ignore and move on to the next topic at hand.
i have found that a non-response deters, eventually, these types of post or and responses.
i am reminded of some(here at allnurse and in other areas of my life) who love to tear down others to make themselves look good, but it doesn't.
the mere fact that others/myself have different opinions does not make the opposed opinion right/true/so/written in blood, etc.
just like beauty, it is all in the eyes of the beholder for how each individual act or does not act.
