    I would be incredibly surprised if anyone cared never mind had the time to track you down, and even if they have if you haven't written anything horrendous why is it a problem?
    It's just arse covering. Just because I have no cause to worry, doesn't mean I should be lackadaisical with my privacy.

    I'm going to have to start reading my textbooks again very soon. I literally remember nothing about the CVS, which is a problem because they don't really teach us anything else on it until clinicals.

    Of course it sounds surprising and unbelievable, but it happens and when it does, it isn't the best feeling I would like to think that I can control my privacy and who gets to know who I really am, even just as a matter of principle. I don't walk around the street with a placard giving my full name and contact details, do I?

    And plus, I can't keep track of everything I have said over thousands of posts and many years. By staying anonymous, I can keep posting what I like without having to worry about arse covering.

    For example, I saw an applicant post their halls room number on here a few days ago. Exciting enough to get a halls place, but you can easily forget about that one post. It wouldn't be difficult at all for someone to walk into that building and get hold of the resident's list if they wanted to find out who you are including name, age and course and student number (my old halls, I know the score).

    With that all said, it reminds me I must go take my clozapine

    Dunno, but the hat is definitely appropriate for psych what with all the thought insertion flying around.

    An escaped psych patient gate crashed a 3rd year lecture here last year. Apparently it was terrifying yet strangely compelling.

    Yeah I heard it was famous for something. I think they were opening a new bit of it a couple of years ago though, with bowling and a cinema or something? don't really remember!
    Ah yeah, like two years ago. They opened a Megabowl, Vue and a couple of restaurants. That is Cwmbran. They've now opened a club in the bottom of there, owned by the same guy who owns Delilahs/OTT/Meze in Newport.

    Basically:
    Don't say bad things about patients or colleagues online
    Don't accept/sent friend requests from patients on facebook
    Employ 'conservative' privacy settings on facebook
    Oh and don't lie face down on a helipad and upload the picture online.

    If you're referring to what I think you may be... looks like I switched hospital at a good time - poor new A&E FY2s! :ninja:
    Although seems like Police don't normally get taken to the local hospital.
