I just wanted to thank cafemom for having the anon button... Has this button ever saved you?

I felt like cutting myself because things have been so bad for me lately and I use to cut myself in high school. I got so much support from moms on here, that the thought of cutting myself went away.

  • I don't think it's fair to people like you that we have grown women on here who abuse the anon button. There's women with legitimate problems who choose to be anon because something is bothering them and they just want to not be known. Too many people just use the anon to cause trouble...not fair at all.

  • I think the anon button is fantastic in certain situations so that mothers can reach out and get help for things that they are ashamed or embarressed about. And way to go on finding the support you needed! But I also think that the anon button is way overused and can often be used to abuse people instead of an avenue for help.

    I've used it only rarely, and I am thankful that I had the oppertunity to use it when I did!

  • I don't abuse the button. Sometimes people want to cause trouble, yes, but that's not why I use it. Sometimes the questions we have are humiliating and we just don't want everyone to know who we are. I think on occasions like that, the people answering should back off and not be so offended that someone posted anonymously. Its definitely nice to have the option.

  • I think the ANON button IS overused by the ignorant ones on here just wanting to start trouble.

    People have problems, it is part of life and to bash some one for their beliefs, or issues they are having and reaching out to ask for advice is so immature.

    ALOT of kids have joined these sites, just to post ridiculous, and hurtful comments.......I see it like day they will need the advice and god help them if they need it in reality one day if they act like this one will be there. I wouldn't be if they acted like that in reality and those whom HAVE friends more then likely birds of a feather flock together and they're so lame brained....they cannot tell the difference!

    And YEP! I m using the ANON button......grow up helpful to Moms on here..get a conscious cause life might just knock it out of ya! The HARD way!

    Take good care ORIGINAL poster!
