I am pretty new to CafeMom. I am excited to have the opportunity to be involved in a greater community of women who share their thoughts and experiences, but I am often put-off by the rude and insulting responses that are often posted. I'm sure there's lots of wisdom and valuable experiences to be shared out there, but it seems you have to dig through a lot of ugly venomous chatter to get the occasional meaningful thread. I find it pretty discouraging. It seems pretty sad that so many people choose to ruin the wonderful potential that CafeMom offers.
I am wondering if collectively, we can think of some ideas that could foster less hostility and more fellowship among the women who want to discuss some of the many important issues we share in common. When all is said and done, what we share in common far outweighs the things that separate us. Hopefully this won't spark some firestorm of angry women who are ready to hate me.

If you stick to the groups (not the drama clubs like the Newcomers group), you will find more intellectually stimulating conversations.
