WHY are some women on here so NASTY??

It's so frustrating!! There are some aspects of Cafemom that I REALLY enjoy-- I've met some wonderful, caring, thoughtful women, gotten some good advice and great support-- and lots of funny stories. But... I've also gotten my share of nasty, b*tchy responses to the simplest questions I ask, both in the groups and here on Answers. It seems like some women just want to ruin it for everyone. Anyone else have this problem or is it just me? And... WHY? It makes me think about leaving Cafemom because every time I post something, I have to analyze it to death to make sure there's nothing that someone can snark on-- but there always seems to be anyway.

Seriously, only on Cafemom can you ask for recommendations for the best type of... I don't know... breakfast cereal, and get blasted for feeding your child breakfast. (Exaggeration, but you know what I mean!)

  • This question is asked everyday. Sorry you are experiencing the Drama Mammas. But everyone has their own opinions and the freedom to voice them.

  • Just ignore them. There's nothing you can do about it. You're just encouraging them by getting upset about it.

  • Some women are snarky and sarcastic.
    Some women are blunt.
    Some women are mean.
    Some women are too senstive.

    It's just a huge mix of 1000's of personalities. That's all. You take the good with the bad. Ignore who you wish to ignore, avoid who you wish to avoid. Someone can make a sarcastic comment, a rude one, a mean one..ect.. Doesn''t mean that anyone needs to engage them. But that's what happens, someone will engage them which turns a thread into a pissing match and a bitchfest.

  • I have to agree with you. I just recently did a post and ended up deleting it because i had a few woman that left nasty comments. Not something i would like to read during my last few weeks of pregnancy. I thought this was suppose to be a place of support and love?

  • Like pixie trix said..its a lot of personalites thrown into one site here and you will getting all sorts of different responses. You cant post a simple question without it attracting some people to mess it up. Its their problem, not yours. Pick the responses that will help you and ignore the nasty ones

  • Not everyone is a happy person. Instead of looking towards positive and giving contructive critism they like to tear down and be negative about everything and anything. I don't like it either, so I just report them, and let CafeMom be the judge.

  • Some women like to behave like that it gives their meaningless existence some excitement I just move on from people like that. Smile shake your head and laugh people who do things like this are hardly worth a second of your time. Smile and know it feels good to never have to carry around all of that bitterness.

  • NO SOME WOMEN ON HERE ARE STRAIGHT BITHES AND DISRESPECTFUL. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OPINIONATED AND JUST PLAIN BITCHY. WE NEED TO REPORT THEM AND GET THEM OFF OF HERE.
    I WAS ON THE VERGE OF CRYING ONCE BECAUSE OF A RUDE MOM. IT WAS A SIMPLE QUESTION AND TOTALLY UNCALLED FOR RESPONSE.

    WERE HERE TO SUPPORT EACHOTHER NOT TEAR EACHOTHER DOWN.
