Absolutely floored at the audacity!

In another group, a poster asked for opinions about a topic.  Granted, this topic can be fairly contraversial, however, the group itself is usually fairly tame and supportive (I do NOT post or reply on drama filled groups).  I replied with my opinion as the original poster asked.  People in the replies are going off on MY OPINION!  

Um. where did I ask for their opinion?  I will, on occasion, reply to someone's reply and say, "I agree with this" or something along those lines, but to trash a reply, to me, is just rude!  It's like butting into a conversation that you weren't invited!

Sorry, I am just frustrated because I don't care how these particular people raise their kids but they are INSISTENT that they know how to raise mine!

CM is like that- people don't know how to mind their own damn business, always wanna be up in someone else's.

 They do it to start drama...that's all.  I don't take the bait.  There are certain members who only respond to start trouble.

Welcome to the darkside of CM. This topic is the main reason I'm reluctant to post or reply too often. Sorry you had to experience it.

Just ignore it. I have misquoted at times or replied in way that upset someone. I apologize & try to clarify what I said if it came across as rude or bitchy, but I never apologize for my opinion or feelings. =]

Your opinion is just that, your opinion. It should not be up to others to tell you that you are wrong for feeling a certain way. I think that people can and should state their opinion without criticizing others for theirs. I would just ignore it.

Yeah online behavior can be fairly annoying.

plenty of bored bittys on here with nothing else to do in their day till the kids and hubby get home. Don't let it get to you, they are nothing to you in your life to matter.

You have all kinds on here, in the begging when I joined CM - I had a miscarriage scare - I had never had one so I posted about it and asked girls about their opinion. I was floored when a girl actually made fun of me and had some rude and misplaced comment.
