I know I haven't been on CM for very long, but it seems as though some of the moms are down right mean to one another. Does anyone else feel this way? It makes me think twice before posting anything or replying to anyone else.

  • Yeah,but you have to take what everyone says with a grain of salt. You're taking a chance asking anything on a public forum.

  • The way I see it, it's just someone online and not like my best friend or something, so I don't pay too much attention. But yeah, a lot of people on sites like this are mean. I think it's mostly because they know they'll probably never meet the person they're being mean to, so it makes them feel all big and badass.

  • Some are downright mean, some are being misunderstood because you can't read tone into a reply typed on a computer. It's bound to happen with so many different people in one place. Especially on hot topics. Everyone's got an opinion. You just have to accept the fact that you aren't going to agree with everyone. And yes you will find a fair share of trolls on here too. If you really have a question though ask it. Just be ready for the snarky comments as well as the serious ones. You get used to it after awhile.

  • Some of the moms are pretty nasty, but most are great. I try not to get too annoyed with them because we're online && I can't really hit them like i'd like to, so I ignore it.

  • Some are mean. I am sure they just suffer from low self esteem and were picked on in school a lot.

  • It unfortunately comes with the territory...just try not to take it personal. The same drama existed when I was in middle school and high school..and I just avoided it like the plague.
