Non supportive responses

So I have been a bit disturbed by all the non-supportive replies to some of the posts.  So, ladies, remember that while Cafe Mom in general may thrive on drama, this little group has done very well with actual support, and kind words.  If you cannot say something supportive and/or productive, pass on the post. 

Polite disagreement is one thing.  But the responses I've seen the last couple of days are not disagreement, they are outright rude.

So I propose that if you see a reply like this, you kindly remind the lady that we aren't a drama group.

If you are a person who has posted these replies, please rethink your response and either be supportive or post for drama elsewhere.

Eh I just take everything with a grain of salt.  No one has walked a mile in my shoes so I have no problem disregarding them.  I am tired of how women overall just arent more supportive of each other.

YES! I was thinking the same thing. We used to have such a nice, kind, encouraging group.....Seems like in the last week or so, it's gotten a bit nasty. Thank you for posting this.

Sorry, a little bit of that drama was caused by me, I had my panties all twisted and uncomfortable about the summer school situation! I'll simmer on down, lol!

Thanks for the support.

Your initial post was just a rant.  But some of the replies to you were concerning.  That was one of the posts that made me think this was becoming an issue.  There were a few this last week that were just the opposite of how this group usually is.

As a cafemom troll I agree, these other groups away from the troll/drama groups are created for a reason. To get to know others and seek support, advice, and so forth. Even I know the limitation where to troll or what not. I support this post 100%. 

We all need a little support in our lives.

Thanks. I know you love a good troll from lurking in other groups. And you keep it chill here.

I love this group! Many moms on Cafe Mom are SAHMs, but here most of the other moms who work full time outside the home have much in common with me and the issues that I face as a full time working mom.

So let's support each other. By the way, I have never had a bad or negative experience on this group.

Thanks for being here ladies!
