  • No there are goin to be rude ppl unless they take it too far then all they would do is change their info and come back again.

  • The only problem with this idea is that I could forsee someone thinking what someone says is "vile" simply because they disagree.

    Let's say the person who wants to be the "booter" is a huge advocate for : breastfeeding, ERF, cloth diapering, no CIO, same sex marriage, staying at home, pro life, etc. (trying to think of hot button topics... lol)
    and the "bootee" is a formula feeder, who uses CIO, disposable diapers, anti same sex marriage, all for working moms, pro choice, etc.

    Also both of them are known for speaking up about what they agree with constantly. While what neither one of them is saying is probably considered "vile" by every member of the site, the ones that agree with the "booter" most likely agree that it is vile garbage instead of varying opinions/lifestyles.

    I hope my rambling makes sense.

  • Sometimes I do but then again people can be so petty that I think just because they don't like someone they would boot them.

  • Only if it directly affects you; otherwise, I don't think it's anyone else's business.

  • To an extent.. Sometimes ppl get all uptight and want people out.. that wouldn't be fair.

  • What if it was put out for members to agree and sign a petition? what if it was someone who has been here for years and the only thing you have seen from them is vile?

  • what if it was someone who has been here for years and the only thing you have seen from them is vile? .................i really do not think my partner is on here, he is the only vile person i can see booting off, no one bothers me to that point

  • I am talking about a member who has been here for at least how old the site is 4 years or so, has never had a kind word or gesture towards anyone here, and all the comments are meant to insult and degrade. It hasn't been me personally but all of us as a whole have been at one time affected by the lack of tact, rudeness, bitterness, etc.
    Krofz, I hear ya, but this has nothing to do with difference of opinion, you can speak up your mind without belittle anyone in the process.

  • I am new on here. I thought someone was supposed to be watching for posts that are rude, uncalled for, etc.... And I thought those people that were out of hand would be booted. I guess this person has slipped through the cracks, huh?? I hope no one is ever offended by anything that I say. I only want to be able to hear from other moms that I can relate to about things. I don't want to be popular or have any other reasons for joining. :)
