Why can't I get a simple answer on these boards? Why are so many moms out there so rude even when answering basic questions?

We're all supposed to be a team here? We've all got something in common...being a mom. So why do we all have to be against each other? I see so many rude comments on these boards replying to simple, every day, and sometimes very serious, personal questions. Why can't they just reply respectfully and not be so freakin' rude?

  • Because some people are so closed-minded. And some just like drama. It's sad, but true.

  • b/c there are some moms here who have very low self esteem and they feel good about being rude to others so they can get a the real world they wouldn't say sh*t....they hide behind the anon button.

  • I wish it were so. You may think you're answering a "simple" Q (sincerely) here at CM. Never really imagining in your wildest dreams it may offend some loose screw, on some subject.  It just goes to show...if you can't see or hear answers, facial expressions, body language. Your answer gets misread. Someone judges you to be someone you are NOT!  *whines, off my soapbox now!

  • Well there is PMS and pregnancy....but yeah I know what you are saying and I sometimes think that people just know that... because of the God almighty computer screen that they are safe and can have their opinions
