Why are some cafe mom users so angry?

I have noticed that several replies to questions are mean-spirited or trying to sway the question asker to the responders point of view. example I gave my child a time out and the responder would reply they don't believe in it how could you do that? I guess the other thing that bothers me is when someone is being crummy and they remain anonymous, I would think at least have the guts to stand behind your statement. What do all of you think?

  • I'd have to completely agree! It's okay to give your opinion but every parent has different ways they choose to raise their children. I could ubderstnd if you came on saying you were beating your child or something to that extreme but come on now ladies. I suppose some women are just unhappy with themselves and their own lives that they feel the need to be a bitch to everyone! YET, they apparently just don't have the balls to state who they are because they can't take the bitch being thrown back at them.

  • Yes the anonymous answers are sometimes very rude. But it clearly states next to the anon. answer box that if you are going to answer anonymously, that your answer must be nice, honest and respectful. Do not forget about that "report this answer" button. If you feel an answer you receive is not nice or disrespectful, feel free to use this and just state that the you felt the answer did not follow CM's set guidelines for anon. answers. I have done this many times and they have always removed the answer within 10 minutes or so.
