    I am not sure that I know the post you are referring too but I can see how it could cause trouble.

    Agree MBA is the way to go.

      It was the post where he expressed gratitude and elation that people with stupid complaints came into the ER, because “cha-ching” either way. It was very off putting. I’m very willing and able to separate posts and opinions and was happy to look past it and find wide agreement on other topics. But it wouldn’t surprise me if leadership at some level got wind of the post and said something. Pretty easy to ID someone who is anonymous.

        So as someone in an academic institution who writes grants and papers and does peer review, will a tweet such as this get me in trouble?

          Probably doesn’t help.

            Eh, I think you're right, rogue dad. And the tweet fits with the"rogue" persona, so . . .

                Few things matter more to me than the right to free speech. I may disagree with you, I may not like what you have to say, but unless you are committing slander/libel/harassment/etc I fully support your right to say it.

                I also found the post ENT doc mentioned off-putting but it's still available to read, he didn't delete what he posted here so I don't think that's it. I hope he's ok too and just found better things to do.

                Rogue dad, I don't think you're anonymous at all. I mean your picture is right there on your Twitter account ? But seriously, I think it's awesome how you say what you think. Let your freak flag fly!

                  Re: free speech, libel, defamation, etc. you can say what you want (and should be allowed to IMO beyond what most would consider reasonable bounds), but that doesn’t mean that speech doesn’t have consequences. Who do you think is getting the promotion? The squeaky wheel complaining about academics on Twitter, or the other person who makes no fuss (all else equal)? Some might use tweets as a means to fire someone. I see very little net advantage to being on social media these days.

                    I agree. I think people need to chill out and come back to reality.

                    I would love to be a fly on the wall in a blue collar bar where a physician was complaining about his job to roofers and mechanics.

                    This line of thinking is literally the only thing keeping me employed as a physician.  I'm thankful for my blue collar upbringing for this reason.

                      I don't think it's easy at all to ID an anonymous poster. I have literally zero idea who anyone on this forum is except those who make it clear. Fears about this seem over-stated. Yeah maybe if you decide to run for POTUS someone would comb through internet postings and make a theory but, as an example, I have no idea who you are IRL. I know that you're an ENT and that you have kids and bought a house recently. That's about it.

                      I can see the point about that post. It was not only tone deaf but also a bit outside the mainstream way of thinking even for fairly crusty ER docs.

                      I generally follow the rule of not saying anything online you wouldn't want printed on the front page of the newspaper. We also have to keep in mind that the landscape is changing on this kind of stuff, not super fast but it's changing. Everyone has an online persona now for the most part even if a fairly limited one.

                        I think what they mean is that after so long you end up putting enough bits of information out there, yes strung out over months to years, that you are eventually not really anonymous. Sure, most arent going to do the work, etc...nor do they care but I think its true. I dont feel anonymous, and Im okay with that really.

                        I mean you're not very anonymous, wouldnt take much to ID you either, but we're pretty frequent and open. I think its just frequency leads to sharing enough over time. Also having met many on here its pretty hard to feel/act anonymous.

                        I think its ok and something worthwhile here, a more special place than most forums, usually the ID type scenarios are something that can be very beneficial to a new question as someone has experience with a place, type of work, etc...

                          I know what you are talking about now.  I guess I did not read it that way. It must have been months ago when I read it but  I thought of it as - why complain and moan about something we are really powerless to change.  I do not think he encouraged pointless ER visits but just tried to look at the bright side that they were a part of the job and they were easy money.  I can see how that can rub someone the wrong way.    In my line of work (Family Practice)  We see pointless junk all the time.  I still complain when people come in for sore throat for the past 12 hours or other viral nonsense but I try to complain less and take it as a chance to educate and reassure the patient.  Remembering that it provides me with another visit that I am getting payed for helps when the same patient comes back a few months later with the same nonsense.

                          I do agree that in no way should we encourage this behavior for our financial gain.  I can totally appreciate how the post came off that way.  And I can see how being glib about such things can get you in hot water.

                            What I meant by identifying people easily was regarding anonymous bloggers - there are so many ways one can be found that aren’t considered prior to publishing. This is where I vehemently disagree with the “how to start a blog” posts that advocate for just jumping in and starting to write. Protect yourself first.

                              Yeah I do not think the grass is any greener on the other side.

                              It might be different and some people need that change but not me.  At least not yet!
