  • It's easy to be rude to someone when you're hiding behind a screen. Don't let it bother you.

  • Awwww don't cry. Who cares what people you've never met and never will say? It's the get all kinds of people. Maybe you shouldn't ask questions if you take the answers so personally? You become a target for abuse if you react that way.

  • ive seen some HORRIBLE ones. like once a girl wanted to know how to get thru missing her baby that she gave for adoption. most moms were supportive, but one asshole had the nerve to say "then why did you give your baby away?" or something along those lines. people are just douches- dont worry about em.

  • Some people say things like "am I a bad mother?" and then get upset when someone says "yes you are." If someone doesn't want to hear that they are a bad mother, they shouldn't ask that question. Some people ask "what do you think?" and get upset when people tell them what they think. Another bad one is "what's your advice?"

    You may be asking questions the wrong way. You may be asking questions and not wanting to hear the answers people are giving you. It could be the questions you are asking aren't right for CM. It is hard to tell inflection in answers and you may take something the wrong way. Sometimes someone is kidding and others think they are serious.

  • Because their lives are sour and bitter and enjoy spreading their vile to total strangers.

  • That's life. Some people are sweet, other people are sour. Most people can be either, depending on what kind of day they're having.

    Remember: This is the internet.

  • Don't let it get to you.  Think of if this way, do you really care what some virtual stranger thinks?
