I've been a lurker at allnurses.com for years and finally made the jump to being a full member earlier this year. The site is simply amazing. I absolutely love the changes that were made to allnurses.com earlier this year and can say that I've never had an issue with the moderators or site staff.
There ads on the site but, come on, what website in 2019 doesn't have ads?!?
Frequent posters come and go but that is natural given the fact that these are real, working nurses who have jobs and lives. The changing faces on the site keep it fresh and bring new perspectives to the conversations.
As for people getting banned, it happens. People get put in Twitter and Facebook "jail" all the time. Deleting toxic posts on allnurses.com is a good thing because I'd rather have real conversations instead of a couple sour apples ruining an otherwise helpful and informative website.
In short, I'll keep coming back because I love the people and I love the conversations!
