just wondering, does this bug anyone else?

Anyone else tired of like totally pointless responses to legitimate questions?? I mean it's ok when someone doesn't have a totally useful answer but tries to be encouraging, cause that's nice that someone is taking the time to try to help. But it's so annoying when it's like either condescending or irrelevant. Like when someone posts a question or asks for support about something stressful there are like way too many answers that basically amount to "just get over it!!" rather than being helpful or supportive. Also, I hate it when someone asks for advice on something like for instance, a brand of formula, and someone just gets hung up on the fact that the person isn't breastfeeding or something rather than answering the question. And yes I know "I can just leave and not stay on CafeMom if I don't like it blah blah." I don't want to leave, I'm just saying it bugs me, so calm down ;P

  • I know it seems pointless, but some people are just letting off steam or just goofing around.
    The best thing to do is to ignore it and don't take it to heart. It's the heartfelt answers that matter. ♥

  • Haha, ya it bugs me. It's so sad that when you post a question, you feel like you have to defend yourself in your post, like how you said "I don't want to leave" I totally feel ya girl. Gotta ignore em.

  • Makes me go batty! Completely and totally! I LOVE the answers section because I get a look at truly cool questions, truly idiotic ones, AND, best of all, if I answer, I know I may be helping someone! It is the meanie-poo-poo-heads who screw it up for the rest of us!

  • Good thing we can write whatever we want as long as it isn't disrespectful. It is freedom of speech. Get over it. :)
