Is it just me or do you ladies see alot of negativity and nastiness on Cafe Mom these days? I mean, don't we all get enough of that on Facebook or in real life? I come here to get advice or vent to people with common issues. I have not been a target of abuse too much but I see it alot on other's posts. Doesn't anyone believe in the saying "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all"? Isn't it just common courtesy to be respectful of others? Why do people feel the constant need to be mean? And they do it anonomously which is just being a chick Sh*t...lol. Just had to vent cause I was annoyed with stuff I have seen today on here.

in loveGina

 Yup, you're right--people will do what they want, regardless of whether it's right or not, courteous or not, kind or not...it's the chance we all take for being on the Web...

I agree with you on that 100%. it has happened to me quite a bit and that is why I don't vent about anything. If I need to talk or vent, I send a private message to one of the ladies I have in my friend list. Those two particular ladies have never put me down and all they have are encouraging words for me. I like that. 

I'm wondering what happened to the saying: "Treat others the way you want to be treated". Guess it's gone now. well not totally since that is according to that saying I have raised my kids.

I think a lot of these people would never react in someone's face like that so they hide behind a computer and do it. Then there are others who are just like that in person.

I agree. I have ran across a couple of posts where people are attacking others and its like if you don't have anything constructive to say or you do not know how to word your thoughts appropriately just don't respond to that person's post.

Internet bullying that's all it is and I also agree with you that it's seen more with people who don't have a pick or has anonymous with their identity, lol.

 I don't see much of it myself. But I know it's here. You are right.
