Is CafeMom ..

Anything like Baby Gaga? I had to leave there because I just could not believe some of the stuff that happens there! People are so mean, and they think it's alright that it's pretty much a jungle! I was actually told that I have to "defend" myself and if I didn't fight to the death I wouldn't last. Sorry, but I joined a site to talk to other expecting or already Moms and I didn't want to fight with everyone! You ask a question, and no matter what it is, SOMEONE finds a way to bash you and scream. You show someone proof of an answer you give -- and it's still no good, you're still an "idiot" because you haven't been a member long and this person has more posts than you. UGH! I couldn't believe it. They kept bashing this site, saying to go to CafeMom if I wanted "nice" people, so I DID! :)

  • there are good and bad people - but you can ignore the bad...

  • And most of the bad most anonymously, so I will often times just skip over those answers.

  • But htey only answer anonymously in the Question threads. You get to see them in all their miserable glory in the group posts.

  • Unfortunately, here like anywhere else you get the good and the not so nice. Key is to shrug the not so nice ones off and don't let them get to you! By the way, WELCOME!
