Please Don't Take Post's Or Replies Seriously!

Well apparently i had another encounter with a certain member who liked to take certain things seriously and cause the drama herself. I had to remove two members,(im not naming who, not naming why) one of which i didn't want to remove, but had to because she attacked back, which is understandable. Now, i allow BF facts, of course, cause i promote anything that's a proven true fact, and Bfing of course is one of those things, for anyone who wants to BF, BUT! (big but there) i DON'T allow someone to reply back with true facts and a big example of how their kid is better. It's un-called for. True facts is enough. If someone is trying to start something with you, report it to me, and i'll give them their first and only warning in this group, then their gone (hence, kicked out one member because of this) Im getting tired of getting emails back and forth between people fighting over the internet for something that started off so small and ended up not even being about the subject! So please guys, just take it easy, CAPS doesn't necessarily mean their yelling at you, their possibly trying to make a point across. Example?


It's a TRUE fact

to

IT'S A TRUE FACT!


We can see the difference can we not? Of course other's just like typing in caps, so if you don't know what their meaning by that, why not just ask instead of yelling at them for something they didn't mean you to take seriously in the first place? Much better than having two members gone because of something that shouldn't have taken place at all.

Thank you guys for your time and reading this, and i hope you had a great Mother's Day.

I think it is great to Police the site so closely.  I searched and searched for a "NON-AGRESSIVE" site to post in and had stopped logging in due to some unkindly responses.  I'm happy to log in this morning and see that CafeMom takes this behavior seriously because I spend a lot a of time alone and enjoy being able to have a CALM place to vent and message in discussion groups.  We are ALL different and own different opinions.  Being allowed to express them is fantastic (to me it shows both sides of an opinion) but when it becomes agressive I tend to avoid.  OWN your opinion/feeling they are yours, however; remeber the fact that we are all different with different responses and personalitys.  It's very hard to understand wethr someone is attacking you through "typed messages" it may just be that taking a step back, re-reading the information/posts a few times considering that the response was not an ATTACK but merely an OPINION and calming coming back to the post once it has been thought thru or not responding at ALL if it's negative will keep you calm and your babies calm....Remember they don't like it when we are upset so don't let the small stuff get to you.   I wanna use CafeMom as a positive, safe place to speak.
