Rudeness

Postby jsielke on Sun Apr 09, 2017 6:21 am

I had some time this morning, and was reading through some posts on this, and on the Apnea Board. I noticed there are a lot of rather rude responses to some questions on the list. Granted, some of the questions seem obvious, but probably are not to the person asking. I see terse, sometimes even sarcastic answers given by some of the "experts."
I will probably be banned for posting this, but after noting this, I had to say something.

Unfortunately I don't think this forum bans users except for SPAM. The rudeness and character assaults add unnecessary noise making it difficult to extract the buried useful information.

No, you won't be banned as this is an unmoderated forum. But you will be flamed big time and ironically accused of trolling to distract from the real issues. You will also be accused of being an arrogant newbie because you want to tell "experienced" members how to run things.

Anyway, I agree with you but unfortunately, things aren't going to change. So you have to decide whether the positives of this forum (and there are many) outweigh the negatives or if you need to spend your time on other apnea boards that are moderated don't tolerate rudeness.

Interestingly, one of the rude experts is as nice as he can be on one of those moderated boards. Take that for what it is worth.

Personalities clash, and ignorant knowitalls are rarely tolerated.
That said, there is much thought and compassion here.
My breast cancer thread is a lovely example ("Defective Frog")--thank you, all!

And CF, I wanted to thank you publicly for the very supportive PM you sent me regarding my cancer diagnosis.

Thanks for the replies, and my prayers to my fellow cancer survivors (Bladder, prostate and 4 melanomas, all clear now).

Yes, unfortunately there are several who think sarcastic "advice" is helpful. However, there are many who are extremely knowledgeable and respectful at the same time. You have to pick and choose. Take what works for you and leave the rest. You'll find out quickly who you want to 'speak' with and who to ignore. Note my signature... and have a pleasant Sunday.

My thoughts & prayers go to all the cancer patients & survivors. I have survived prostate cancer and have known others who were not quite so fortunate.

if you don't like it here, then stick to apneaboard, that's what it's there for.

Indeed, there are some here who enjoy belittling others, perhaps it makes them feel better about themselves.

I was curious and did a forum search on the word. In the "old days", it often applied to DMEs and their employees.
More recently, it has more often applied to some of the "personalities" on the forum.

search.php?keywords=rude

Try to sift through it all and take the "good" and ignore the "bad".
