Following the leader

I have notice in my months being here that if some one post a question and some answer negative many moms on here also answer negative. For example, minutes ago a woman posted that her husband cheated on her the first mom that answered with postive words and encouragment. The 15 or so answer also answered postive. A couple of weeks ago similar question was posted the first answer was "You need to leave his ass" soon after that others moms have similar response. Am I the only one that noticed that? Why do people follow the leader?

  • I don't follow anyone, no need to, my opinions and believes are quite grounded.

  • Maybe cause its how they truly feel. I have no problem with giving an answer different than main stream.

  • ~*Smiles*~... guess the mentality of the response depends on the group of people replying? Some act like a pack of dogs and wonder why some immature males call them the "B" word.... hahaha

  • I've noticed it too. It happens in every section and even in the groups. Makes me think of the adage 'birds of a feather flock together.'
