Ok, I just have to know - what is it about anonymous forums that makes people think they can be nasty and make rude comments all the time? I mean, the residency forums are no where NEAR as bad as the pre-allo but come on. This being the psych forum, I'm interested in learning what your thoughts are on this whole "pathological" type of behavior - is it because people are truly nasty deep down and they feel safe to vent here? Is it because most medical people are fundamentally insecure and hell bent on one up-ing eachother? Or is it that everyone just wants to be right? I'd tend to think its not the latter since some of the comments people make are of no significance and directed at just putting a poster down - so I'm stumped. Thoughts? Ideas? Please share! Sazi, as the moderator I just know you have something to add right?
