 I got this from my favorite gossip site, Dlisted. I can't say she's wrong, LOL.

Tina Fey Says Mommy Message Boards Are A Cesspool Of Disgusting Foolery

If Taylor Swift is right and there really is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women, then I guess being trapped in that special place in hell is a lot like being trapped inside of a mommy message board. At a round table with the cast of Admission, UsWeekly brought up that scene in the last episode of 30 Rock where Liz Lemon gets into a type fight with a bunch of crazy and judgy moms on a mommy message board. Tina Fey said that scene was inspired by the time she dipped into the insanity pool by lurking on UrbanBaby (aka Fishstick Paltrow's home away from GOOP). Tina said:

"That was definitely built on experience with things I have seen. I have never . . . I don't know how to post on any of those. So I promise you I have never posted. I have seen people pretending to be me post on Urban Baby. I had a friend call me and say, "Are you on Urban Baby?" I said no. I didn't know what that was. I do think some of them - Urban Baby specifically - have some of the worst human behavior I've ever seen in my life. Terrible. There is no one running [those sites] or they would fix it."

Worst human behavior she has ever seen? Well, I guess she wasn't in the Dlisted comments that time I was in there and we started talking about dudes who love to make out with Aunt Flow. Tina has a point, though. Buzzfeed posted a list of the 15 most vomit-inducing things written on UrbanBabyand it included the most fucked up thing I've read ever since I re-read that Dlisted comment thread about dudes who love to make out with Aunt Flow:

(FYI: DD stands for "dear daughter.")

THE HELL?! Shut down the internet. Shut down the world. Shut down everything. I can't.

When I had DS part of the info packet I received when I gave all of my info to L&D was a strong suggestion to avoid mom websites and this one was listed. It was almost like a taboo advert. It worked.

She did a thing like that on the season finale of 30 Rock. Her character adopted two children, she posted a question about finding a bike for an 8 year old girl and then was slammed by God only knows how many posters. 

And I sat there watching, thinking "God damn it! She's not even exaggerating! That's exactly what happens!"

You post something on the internet and By God someone will disagree with you. Even if it's something very benign.
