Would you stop cyber bullying me,LoL?

I answer quesions tha ppl post with my honest opinion. If I offend someone or a group of ppl, then I apologize for it. But even then, any post I put up there after is full of taunting "anon" replies. Not to mention the mailbox full of hateful and overly dramatic pms! I dont scare easily, and I'm not intemidated but why is there sooo much cyber bullying? I thouhght that this site was for women and moms alike to respectfully discuss what they want. But damn, my page is lit up after every reply I write! Have they nothing better to do?

  • I almost never post anon, and I don't get hate mail, even though I disagree with a lot of posts women put up here.

    I don't mean to be rude... but do you think it might be in your wording?

  • what do you mean in my wording? Im pretty articulate and very much educated. I speak my mind and I dont mind others speaking theirs, I just think that they go way too far the way they come after me.

  • I understand what you're saying. What I mean by is it in your wording is are you maybe too blunt? Like if a woman asks "OMG my baby just fell out of me onto the floor, should I go to the hosptial" do you say something like "Holy crap you're stupid, yes go to the hospital." or do you say something more along the lines of "That's a scary situation, but it could be bad not to go... you should go to the hospital."?

    The truth is that no one likes pure, blunt honesty. All of us like it sugar coated at least a little lol.

  • Partially. We do have a lot of wolves on here who will attack at the slightest remark, so it's not all your fault. I know that I appreciate honesty... but not bluntness lol. For the most part, I try to remember that if they're posting about it, it probably has them in some emotional twist. And that translates into pissy responses to things they don't want to hear.

  • There is no such thing as cyber bullying. Just turn off the computer, or block, delete and report harassing people.

  • I prefer not to run away or be chased off of a site b/c of immature ppl. I've reported many but the truth is they go thru great lengths sometimes and it can be very challenging to get them reprimanded (free speech thing)

  • I seem to piss people off. I'm honest as well but described as rude. I don't think I've ever unjustifiably been rude. It happens. Everyone has different opinions and sadly most women want to be babied and not told like it is.
