  • We are all hormonal. That being said, there are a lot of us that aren't mean but when you are dealing with a public social site, you will get all kinds and all kinds of opinions.

  • I would not call them mean. A small percentage of them do not understand that you can disagree without being vulgar and rude. What they need to find out is that they can convey their opinions and sway people more effectively by being reasonable and explain their thoughts clearly.

  • We're women.
    We're all a bunch of over tired, over worked, over stressed, emotionally driven women.
    As well some get off on being a certain way in a setting that they can get away with it. On the internet you have no face, you have no residence, you have no consequences. With that you can be and do whatever you want. And some women on here take advantage of that.

  • I have came across some very mean ones. I just laugh it off b/c they sometimes don't even read the question properly and post some off the wall answer.

  • I think we all need to work on our written communication skills.

  • My Motto is Nice Matters. I don't know why there are mean ones. I wish there wasn't ones like this any where. How nice it would be for all to get along and help each other. Or just ignore things when you can't be Nice!

  • As a new mom on here, I am shocked at your post. No mom should be mean to another mom....we all try as hard as we can to be the best mom we can be. This is supposed to be a support group. Areas where one mom may know more, that same mom may need advice in another forum. With that said, if there is anyone mean to you, ignore them. Focus on the moms helping you! Some people are just mean and there are many reasons why. Don't focus on those people or what they are saying!

  • Not all moms on here are mean! You just have to find the good ones in the right places and ignore the rest. =)
