  • yeah, the more people get on here, the more rude women you see. when CM first started, it wasn't bad. i actually got loads of help. now if i have a serious question, people bypass it, they just want the drama posts.

  • I often wonder this myself. But sometimes people do post questions and it is so hard to understand what they are saying with all the misspelled words. I see nothing wrong with misspelling words but some women on here will find anything to start problems or just to be a bitch becuase they feel like they are better then others.

  • I think it's just easier for some people to be b*tchy when it's not face-to-face.

  • I don't bother people when the spell things wrong but if they write it like you just wrote your question...sometimes I have to pause to understand what you wrote. I leave the abreviating to texting my friends only but if I want sound advice I write in complete sentences. I can see why some are annoyed by you shorthanding your questions but I wouldn't say anything. If it annoyed me that bad or was took that much time to try to understand then I wouldn't finish reading the question and move on.

  • When I come across posts that are hard to read I try to decipher them. I have come across ones that just did not make any sense so I just ignored the post.

  • Those are some of the reasons I don't log on here too much anymore. Some people have nothing better to do then to mess with others....

  • i know they get all mad and start saying you need to learn before you come write here. some people are just so mean when all we want is to get help. i remember i saw a post about a mom who was pregnant for the first time and just because she spelled pregnant wrong they kept telling her before being a mom she should get educated and get a husban i think thats to mean

  • to be honest, I don't text and can't stand it, so it takes effort to decipher what all the abbreviations are and what somebody is trying to say. I don't mind the misspelled words so much because I can at least decipher those (for the most part)... Even though English is my second language, I can't stand to see it butchered.
