How many of you are considering leaving CafeMom?

I know I am -- over the non-stop hatred and bickering. I am relatively new here and I'm not sure I want to stay. Seriously, post anonymously if you wish, but how many of you have at least entertained the idea of canceling your account?

  • Don't leave! I joined not long ago and I really would love to see more positive, happy, people here. I think people from all walks of life gather here and we just need to avoid the negative ones. I just press the NEXT button on the ill-willed questions & answers and I report anything inappropriate so it gets deleted. I'm sorry if you were offended by anyone!

    I thought I'd give the site a chance for another month and see if I find intelligent conversation out there -we'll see. It would be nice if we had a rating system so we could rate the groups. Or even a Mood rating would be cool - it would vary daily - stay away from PMS rating LOL

  • I have dropped groups for that reason. I don't like all the drama. Now I join fun groups.

  • No, i just drop the groups with fake drama bitches/cliques and stay in more friendly atmospheres.

  • I've taken a vacation from the site before...I've dropped the groups that had the drama...I've just gone onto the next question/journal/etc. I'm now in groups that I really enjoy and I'm much happier on here.

    I like the idea of a rating system, too.

  • Don't judge the whole site based on "Answers". There are a bazillion groups, and there will be at least one or two of them that are the way you like it. Ask for recommendations (not from me, though. I like the bitchy groups! lol) and I bet people would be happy to point you in the right direction!

  • Not really, but then I'm the type of person who doesn't walk away when things get tough. It would take an aweful lot to make me leave. I tend to be fairly calm most of the time and don't assume that people's outbursts are a representation of who they really are.
