Go to: New pharmacy code continues opt-outs over beliefs

ficklefiend's Avatar Jump to comment 16 by ficklefiend

RIDICULOUS. I am training to be a pharmacist at the moment and I hate all this bullshit in the profession. We claim to be the "scientist in the highstreet" and then mire ourselves in homeopathy and religious dogma.

It is a pharmacist's job to CARE FOR THE PATIENT. Not fulfill their own religious ideology. You don't want to sell the pill? Well tough, don't train as a pharmacist.

Go to: An Apology

I hope no one, if the method of moderation is modeled after the back forum. That place is stuffy, sterile and oppressive. If you have been around you would know that we have had a big fight to stop the control freaks in the forum from imposing their rules on the front page a little while back.

To be fair, the forum moderation rules were given from above. Although where the forum was stricter on personal insults, the front page had it's own issues with the dreaded OFF TOPIC!!1! (oh noes! lol) ;)

It is totally weird that two separate cliques have developed on RDF and the one thing I am grasping as a positive to this is that those two groups might come together under the new format.

The really childish thing is to have these little bitchy in-fights when we're all under the same banner. (not talking about your post there, but in general)

I would like to add, since I didn't before, sorry for any harsh words. Being re-quoted in a few newspapers has been a hard lesson.

I am considering signing up to the revamped site under my own name, depending on how migrations are going to be handled. Not that I've ever made it difficult to be accountable for what I post, but I do not like the emphasis that has been heaped on "anonymous" posters by the press, as if that makes us less than people.

Isn't it going to be fun when the forumers and front-pagers have to get along?

I cannot wait.
