Has anyone else noticed how rude some responses are?

Overall I love cafemom and think it's a great place to get or give advice. But I have noticed that some people are so rude. There are posts where the writer is really looking for support, but instead get bashed. I know you can't agree with everyone, but honestly if you don't have anything positive to say, why post at all?

  • I agree with you. I do not always agree with what everyone posts. However, If I see a question that I do not agree with then I just move on. I do not take the time to bash, tell them why they are wrong or start Drama. I do not understand why some people feel the need to do that. There are so many posts I see where women are looking for support or advice and instead they get bashed.

  • For sure. I don't know how many times it can be said.. But.. You don't HAVE to reply.. If you don't like it skip it. OMG.. But no ladies like to kick up some dirt sometimes.. Sigh. Oh well, at least WE can pass the nonsense. =)

  • Sometimes a post requires a rude response because it's the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts.

  • People are too sensitive and are too quick to judge others as rude.

  • It's always been this way. You have to take the good with the bad.

  • I've noticed but am not really sure why it happens. I just kinda ignore the rude answers.

  • I don't enjoy starting drama and I am not rude just for the sake of being rude, ever. But when someone is asking for your opinion, you give it. More often than not, my opinion is positive and supportive in nature. Sometimes it isn't. The whole point of asking for an opinion is to actually get honest opinions, not to have everybody agreeing with you. I know some people would rather just everyone agreed with them, but if I am asked my opinion I give it honestly.

  • yep,,this is true. Stay away from negative stuff and those horrid debates, if you see someone answer in a negative way, vote them down

  • It just really goes to show how immature you can be despite age. Act your age, not your shoe size.
