I have a suggestion for CM what do you think?

I know I'm going to get a bunch of smart ass answers and that'll help to just prove my point so thanks in advance.

How about an option to, when you post a question, to block anon answers? Like next to the box that says "post anon" there could be one that says "do not allow anon responses"

  • I agree with auroura, I think we would have even more questions go unanswered.

  • well how about something like if an anon tries to post to your bulletin you have to approve it...that way people can still do anon posts, but we can weed out the bashers....

  • Don't like it. Some anons have helpful answers and suggestions just like those who choose not to go anon.

  • I do like blue eyed's Idea, that way when the nasty troll messages come by you can just hit delete and stop the insanity before it begins.

  • I'm not into that idea because of the fact that there IS good use made out of the anonymous option and some people DO use it in an appropriate manner. This section is public so some people do not want just anyone seeing what they say. However... you can always use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of your screen and make this suggestion directly to the CafeMom Team. =)
