BLOGSCAN - Decorum and the Anechoic Effect

Aubrey Blumsohn posted on the Scientific Misconduct Blog about how fear of appearing to lack civility or decorum helps maintain what we have called the anechoic effect. Many people in health care do not speak up about even obvious abuses. Those who do are often not treated well. Best quote (by Dr David Kern):

When you're in an argument with a thug, there are things much more important than civility. I do not like incivility. Yet, I like thugs even less.
