  • Because they are ignorant, that's why.

  • Unfortunately, it is an age old question that will always have the same answers.

    1. Because some people are just plain mean.
    2. Why do you care?

    Something along those lines. If I see someone being rude, judgmental, ignorant, arrogant and so on, I call them on it. It's completely ridiculous and uncalled for to act like an ass when someone simply asks a question.

  • It's because there are no repercussions to their actions and the availibility of being Anonymous. If they would take that option away, I bet the hate and meaness would die down a bit.

  • I agree that if they too the Anonymus option away that a lot of the bashing would stop but then people who want to ask questions anonymusly wouldn't be able to. I think you just have to ignore the immature people who can't treat others with respect.

  • I'm sorry if my response came off wrong. I thought it might. When I said 'why do you care?', I meant that it is one of the answers OP would get from some people. I was not asking that question.

  • Why do some people get upset by the comments of total strangers??

  • Because even though in real life we are total strangers, we come to cafemom for a sense of community and friendship with mothers around the world. Like all communities we will not all be like minded, however, we should be able to feel free to express our opinion and ask our pressing questions without feeling belittled and bashed for them. It is bad enough to be bashed in the open here in Answers, but some feel the need to take it too far and take it to PMs and comments on the profile pages. That is why there is a need for the Anon option. That way we can be free to express our opinions and ask our questions without repeated daily attacks in our inbox. Bashing and attacking takes away from the sense of community that we all come here to enjoy. It takes the fun out of CM for everyone. I feel that if you want to attack there are other sites that welcome that. PS I have no prob. with healthy debates just with bashing.

  • It is not just "moms on here". It is people, particularly women, in general. It just stands out more because there is an anonymous option to hide behind.
