Cafemom is lifting quotes from members and placing them on another website?

http://astrology.yahoo.com/event/momentsofmotherhood/holiday-breakfast-traditions-2432351/

Did anyone know about this? We're being quoted on websites we aren't members of now? Did they ask permission for this, or just assume it's okay?

  • I noticed at the bottom of that page you linked, it implies that the quotes were taken from the "moments of motherhood" group. Isn't it possible that that group or the specific members quoted gave permission?

  • Yeah, I guess, but Cafemom has always respected my privacy. They had a person who wanted to speak w/ me about a specific topic I had posted about in a group, and instead of just passing along my contact information, Cafemom e-mailed me first and asked it was okay to do so. I appreciated that they took the time to do that.
