Common Sense is gone

I have to laugh at some of the posts I see on Babycenter.  I lurk over there because it is funny to read. 

"Help, we were outside last night and now LO has these bites.  What are they?"  Really, common sense says they are mosquito bites.  They look like mosquito bites and you WERE OUTSIDE AT NIGHT! Is there anyone who can think for themselves over there, or do they all need validation from strangers?  I can see if it is some crazy rash and you want to see if anyone else has had the same experience, but mosquito bites?  C'mon!

I'm not sure how some people even had kids, I mean did they need to make a post to get step by step instructions on how to have sex?

They just ask for ridicule and I'm usually there to give them some.

There are a few people that seem to post about every question and/or decision they face in their daily life.

I totally agree with you. I'm also known for having a pet peeve about trigger warnings. They use trigger for spiders. Spiders. It completely undermines the meaning of the word trigger. And then you put the whole actual trigger in the title like "infant death" or something but still have to put trigger next to that and in the body of the post. Sigh. I thought we were grown ups?  People can be pretty ridiculous.

Sock lady is particularly bad about this. She posts about waking up and getting dressed. Ok maybe not literally but maybe
