Have you noticed?

If you report a question or answer to cafemom, they are quick to remind you they will take away 3 of our points, but they don't message you to tell you why they leave the question up. I could care less at this point what people's questions are anymore, no matter how inappropriate or what they are soliciting. Its just like it is for some kids, the rules only apply to certain people. Sorry, I feel like I'm whining... where's my cheese?

  • Op- I tend to agree with everything you wrote. Especially agree with certain folks wanting to run the show, including changing or tweaking guidelines as the need arises. There really is no need for the vote down button as the guidelines now define the use. May as well just have the report button, but then you risk losing points. May as well eliminate that button too. What about when a ? Goes Ot and people start responding to the Ot, without addressing the original ? Does that warrant a down vote, if so there should be loads of down votes. Saw lots of angry posts regarding use of the down button. Maybe the old system should have been left in place.

  • No, I haven't noticed that. I knew about it, but I am finding that I am not as interested in CM as I was before. I liked the big debate questions and the 50-100+ answers to different questions, now it just seems like if you are not bumped a bunch that your question might as well not be there at all....I am not sure I like this.
