So, everyone knows about the drama and it needs to end! I have read more posts from some "STAPLES" (as I like to refer to them) of this forum and motherhood that they haven't enjoyed themselves on here lately, that their q's have been neglected and that they are staying away b/c there has been some childish play going on here or that they feel they are being attacked. I am missing these ladies. I would like to welcome you all back. You all know who you are and I wanted to let you know that I think you are important to this forum. I promise to be the "polite police" if you all come back!

I agree w/ you! It does seem like actual questions that are related to our children are getting pa__sed by because people would rather talk more about the drama.

piratesmermaid---i can totally agree i have posted several questions from time to time that get 1-2 or no responses and its all due to the drama at the time ....but some people can ask stupid ones like i have missed a period do you think i am pregnant and it will get tons of responses....some good and some bad like how do we know dumb$*& take a test.....but it gets responses!!!!!!but i had a BF one that got very few and one about potty training a while back....anyway pretty soon noone will be here except the drama queens.........

It's sad because I got so much help in the past, I dunno what I would've done without this forum in the beginning, as a first-time mom.

 

luviduvi - March 7

Exactly! Some of us don't know what to do at the beginning, some don't know what to do when there are two lo's, some just need support. Notice how we haven't heard much from Rabbits07. I love her. She has a lot of wisdom and many of us need her. This forum is creating a monster and I don't like monsters! NOTE: There are many others besides rabbits but she has always comforted me in a way and she is wise

Oh I know, Rabbits was one of the best! She was a great help and comfort so many times.

I'm bumping this b/c I think everyone needs to take a look at it!

I agree with most of what is said, but....Punkin01 - what is wrong with showing support to a mom that is waiting to test for pregnancy? Isnt that part of what this forum is for? We all know that there is a 3 week wait before an at home pregnancy test will give a positive - I like having these moms to talk to while I am waiting for that three week time period! To say that those post are "stupid" is hurtful because although I come on here for support regarding my dd and experiences I am having with her I also rely on these ladies for support during the wait to know if I am going to be a mom to another baby....I think calling those post "stupid" and telling us to just take a "dumb" test is hurtful and offensive!

I can agree with what heather said. Think about USMC wife. That poor woman waited forever to find if she was pregnant w/ an IUD, she was and was miscarrying....we were all here for her and she needed us. I think too we could have a calmer forum if we all could cut the crude cussing, and word and saying like that is so dumb and that's stupid. Okay, that is my next post.

 

Heather F - March 8

I agree with you luvoduv - I'm sorry for repeating the words that were previously typed in this post....I to dislike the use of them.

Ok, you know what? Maybe I am an evil b___h but I havent really seen anything all that bad here!!! So a couple fo people got busted for making up fake screen names, guess what-it is the internet-there are trolls, this should not come as a shock to anyone. And some people got called on saying stupid things, big deal-get over it! I love everyone here and do not judge but if people want to leave because they are so "disgusted" with this forum, then sorry, but see ya! All this whining about hurt feelings and being singled out is getting old. We are all pretty anonymous here and no one should let other peoples opinions affect them that much. Its not like all the people that announce they are leaving or feel so insulted dont end up coming back or changing their name anyways. I am sorry I dont mean to be rude but seriously!

Heather, I dont know what post someone said to "take a dumb test" but that doesnt sound like a usual response on the infant forum. I apologize if someone said something so inconsiderate to you but I know most of the girls on here and they wouldnt say something so cold. Most of the time everyone here is very supportive of one another and if there is a stupid comment thrown in its almost always a bored, random person just trying to stir up trouble. The thing that is p__sing me off is ALL of the attention of this forum is going to the drama. I understand there are going to be a few posts here and there but serious child rearing questions are getting ignored and dropped way down due to all of these unrelated threads. The reason staples are leaving is because there is hardly any infant talk on the INFANT CARE forum imo.

ry, is this a refection of me? I'm sorry but some people on this forum feel like much more than just a username to me. I feel like some woman have become my friends. We all know more about each other these days than our dh's do. I understand that we aren't always going to agree with each other, but the way it being argumented is in such a vulgar way. It is uncalled for. I don't think some are leaving b/c of the diagreements but b/c of some of the childish remarks that are being made and that somethings can't just be left for dead. As some of us mentioned earlier, we would hate for rabbits and some of the other more experienced moms to leave.

 

luviduvi - March 8

ry, if you look in the original thread I stated that we are losing people b/c of the q's being ignored :-)

 

luviduvi - March 8

I see what you are saying :-)

 

Heather F - March 8

Thank you ry for your support, I was responding to punkin01, read her response above and you'll understand what was so offensive.
