October 2012 Moms

Hold up, I'm confused

I keep reading on other boards how tame/boring the Oct 12 board is, but now I'm seeing that we have a rep for being nasty. I would really like to know which one it is so that I can play the part correctly.

Re: Hold up, I'm confused

  • Right?  I missed the initial craziness, caught up, felt super stressed out by it, and now would like a cocktail.

  • Lol, me too. Can someone point me to where we are a nasty board? I mean I know I've been trying to do my part to hold up our reputation, but I can't do it alone.


  • Yea I dont really get it. This board seems to me to be exactly what the boards are intended for... I dont think everyone is overly nice and tells everyone what they want to hear. But also doesnt jump down someones throat for just having difference of opinions...

    I like this board :)

  • wow I had no idea boards talked about each other lol!
  • Yeah - I had no clue that we had a "history" already after only being around for a few months.  I don't really get where this supposed "nasty" reputation comes from either?

    I mean, I've seen plenty of people in their FFFC or UO say they wish our board had more drama! LOL.

  • I don't really look at other boards...only this one :) But everyone has been super nice and honest! I appreciate honesty! I have found every response to my posts very helpful!

    Ask and ye shall receive, apparently.  I would like to be unbloated and rich!  *waits*

  • I always thought it was pretty tame, too. Especially against the Tri boards. We didn't even have our first real DD event happen until yesterday...

  • I'm really confused as to where our nasty rep came from. This board is so over the top P&R sometimes I can hardly stand it. I would love to know what threads gave people this opinion of Oct. That's a BS comment meant to stir the drama pot.

  • I started looking at other boards to see where they mentioned us just to see what our "reputation" they speak of is but I can't find us mentioned... Maybe I'm not looking hard enough!!

    I didn't even know where to start with the thread that got attached by all the 3 tri ladies...some of those responses to our fellow Octomoms made me want to start taking out my earrings and break out the Vaseline. How can they come over here and jump down all our throats when I'm sure they've had similar posts in their own BMBs?

    Yeah - that's what I don't get?  Where do they get off coming over and essentially "policing" our board.

    Yeah me too and that's when I started looking. I can't even find one where they linked the calling out thread...

    The thread hijackers stirred up way more drama than anyone here did. most of them said things that were far more rude than what any Oct ladies posted. Not to mention, who freaking cares if that cray cray doesn't take her pnv's. Not sure why they felt the need to defend her. The whole thing seems very odd lol.

    I'm bored at work - wasting time on a Friday afternoon!  Nothing like a 5 page thread to fill your time!

  • I'm pretty sure all the nastiness has stemmed from a handful of posts in the last few days, but other than that everything has been pretty tame.  I've been feeling extra moody the past few days, so maybe more people are too?

    Aw, crap.  I haven't been a mean girl since junior high!  If I publicly declare that I don't care what vitamins people are/aren't taking, am I exempt from the label?  Or is it too late for me?

    Too late...damage is done. You're in the club now ;) but for the record, I don't give a sh!t who takes their vitamins or who doesn't. Not my baby.

    Yep.  I fear this has killed FFFCs forevermore.

  • I think that Octomoms are amazing and this board has not been rude at all, so IMO the other boards should just leave our board alone. As far as the vitamins, I could care less about someone not taking them, its not my kid. I think as far as policing our board thats kinda childish and they should find better things to do with their time. In short we are AWESOME amazing women, and far from rude!
