Have you stopped spending as much time here on CM?

I know I've cut back because it seems like the answers section is being overrun with drama queens. Several of the people I used to see on here all the time and who gave great answers don't seem to be here as much.

  • This last week I've been on here a lot more because I've been laid up with knee problems. I hadn't noticed a lot fo the drama before because I would pop in and out all day. I've really noticed some drama queens/stalkers/other crazy things since I've been paying attention. I'll go back to popping in and out next week.

  • Sure, there's always been drama, but it seems like lately there has been an influx in the amount of hateful comments, cries of stalking, etc.

  • There's weirdness in the air lately, since around Christmas it seems. On the upside, I can think of about 5 offhand who have dropped off the map and all have new babies, so I'll cut them some slack for that...

  • The profile pages are different but it is the same old same old, although I have noticed the age groups have gotten older and more educated but still with the same stalking , being disrespectful issues going on.

  • Yes. Not only is it repetitive, but it reminds me of high school. Or better yet, junior high. But I've been super busy in REAL Life these days, so I don't have much time to get online, anyway.

  • I usually spend time here, then stop for awhile. I go off and on with cafemom depending on what I have going on in my life.

  • I need to cut it out of my life, but I'm addicted to the Q/A section lol It's nice to see what other moms do or say about stuff...minus the drama of course.
