Is cyber bullying a problem on Cafe mom?

I have noticed over the last couple months that more and more people post Anon. When I have asked why, I get similar response of people getting evil messages because their opinions are not well received. Is this true and can anything be done about it other then hiding?

  • I think so. people are getting more rude and are afraid of having there anwers and question deleted. it seems like ever since the election people are more rude and not open minded. i dont know that you can do much i have complaind but i get nothing in return but rudeness.

  • I have never posted under anon, if people dont like what I have to say they can kiss where the sun dont shine... The only reason I would post under anon is if I was asking a question that I felt was very embarassing personally, or maybe a hypothetical question about a friend or another fmaily member. But I have always answered with my name.

  • What does it matter if someone posts anon?? The moms that desperately try to find out kinda creep me out like are they stalking or something?!

  • Why do I see this so often, when I first came on here I always posted anon because I am by nature shy. It doesnt matter that it is online I am shy no matter what. The people that always gripe about anon are the people that have outgoing personalities. Accept people that are not please, and let it go. Put yourself in there shoes, unless they are posting mean hateful things they have no reason to hide other than they are shy or embarrased.
