Do you make assumptions about women on CafeMom?

Like if you see someone's post on their journal, in a group, or a question or answer on here, do you assume that they posted because of something going on in their life or something that they have personally experienced? Even if they don't give a reason for you to suspect that they speak from personal experience? For example, if someone asks the question "What kind of formula did you use?" do you assume that THEY intend to formula feed?

  • I try not to, but it is human nature to do so...
    So what I do is answer the question thru my own experience or feelings in hopes that that
    will help the person with the question...

  • new to CM. I would have to agree with gmasboy. I post from personal experience and like hearing what women have to say. What they think and how they handle certain issues I might be dealing with. I really think on any social network there is going to be some disagreements and well I hope to walk away knowing something good.

  • Of course you're going to assume they are asking about themselves unless they specifiy otherwise.

  • Who has the time for all that - to put two and two together? I have enough problem coming up with 10 questions per day.
