    Ha!

    I was just about to post a rather nice reply, too.

    FB creeps me out. If it wasn't my only contact with 90% of my friends, I'd delete my page in a heartbeat.

  • Oooo - look I still have part of the post since I had my reply open in a separate window: 

    image ladybuggrl9802:
    Wow! Sorry I asked. I actually would feel better in a private Facebook group because on these boards you don't know if somebody responding to your posts is a man or creep. At least on Facebook you can see that there is a legit person behind the post.

    Why would I even try to explain anything to you guys. Yes,it was my first time posting but that doesn't make me a freak. I had a subchorianic hematoma that was threatening my pregnancy and I didn't want to come on here before and jinx myself when I was told that I may miscarry. I finally had an ultrasound yesterday that showed it was gone so I cn finally feel comfortable with my pregnancy. Obviously this board is not for me because I find it appalling that you ladies jump all over somebody the way that you did.

    Well, how do we know (in your own words) that you're not a man or a creep? This has been a really touchy subject on here, and a number of us are a bit protective.

    Here's my reply to you that I didn't get a chance to post because you DD'ed (and I think it was rather rational, even if skeptical):

    People make fake FB pages all the time. I've actually stopped posting in my other BMB FB group as much because it's my real name, photo, etc...and because FB keeps making it less private.

    And seriously - it's really creepy that your first post was asking to join an FB group. No offense (if you're for real), but I wouldn't want to be a part of a FB group that allowed first-time posters to join. We "know" you even less than we "know" those who have been posting on here since September. Hence the snarky replies. We're actually a pretty low-drama group.

  • You guys are forgetting she is in law enforcement and knows Facebook is legit! How could you not trust her?!

    If you read what I wrote a few posts up you will see why I haven't posted. Like I said, I had a pretty bad subchorianic hematoma. I didn't want to post and then have to come back to tell everybody I miscarried. Sorry if I haven't been active but I would hope people would understand why. I'm also due June 30 so I'm not as far along as other June moms are.

    It's late...it gets slow and the snark comes out.

    But again, you yourself asked how you would know if people weren't men or creeps. Aren't we allowed the same skepticism?

    Hang around awhile. We're nice people. There are other boards to try out if you don't like us....but (in case you consider it because of your due date) I would avoid July 2013. They have drama quite often.

    I can't believe you keep on making fun of me. I don't really need to prove anything to you guys. If you don't believe what I say then that's fine.

    im truly not trying to make fun of you. I can't believe someone who says they are in law enforcement and in the same breathe says Facebook is legit and only real people are on there.... I'm sure I'm not the only one... But hey it's only my view, who knows?

    Also (in case you're still lurking), there were many ladies on here who had to come back and say they miscarried, and others who have been scared that they might miscarry. I'm completely ignorant of what a subchorionic hematoma is or how it would affect pregnancy, and I'm glad that you made it through the scary part.

    The FB thing is really touchy for many on here, so you happened to choose a really bad topic for your first post.

    When you are in Facebook groups as I am for my February 2011 birth group the people in the group don't have acess to your profile unless you are friends with them. I don't even think you can see my location or anything about me except for my picture as my profile is private. I would never divulge personal information about myself unless I was completely comfortable with the ladies in the group and I have actually become good friends with a few of them. Like I said, I like Facebook groups because people seem to have a bit more respect for one another. I came on her posting becUse I thought that there was a group already established that I could join. I really wasn't expecting the crude remarks that I got.

    the ladies on here are actual very supporting of each other. But especially at the early stages we really value our privacy... When the first thing you ask is to join the Facebook group it throws up red flags... However I'm in the giving and happy mood, like the previous poster said, and lets start over! Welcome to the group... Later on we might do a fb but not for awhile, like third trimester. Hang around till then.... :)

    Maybe you ladies should be more respectful of people. There are more tact ways to address an issue without making a person feel like garbage. I have thick skin and have been called every name in the book by people that I've apprehended but I can tell you that it made me upset to be verbally attacked by fellow pregnant ladies. All I was doing was looking for some support throughout my pregnancy.

    if you think you were verbally attacked here (which you weren't) don't go by first trimester... They will eat you alive...

    Ok...last response because I have to go to bed.

    FB is always changing things. I don't trust it at all. Who knows what they'll change with privacy settings in the future, and how do you know if everyone on there is legit? You really don't.

    I'm glad you've had a good experience on your BMB FB group, but we had SERIOUS drama on mine that led to a serious split and serious mistrust, and involved some members wanting to seek legal action against another member. (They didn't and it turned out there wasn't a need, but we had weeks and weeks of crazy drama.) So...yeah. FB groups are great!

    Good night and GL.

    OMG. Now you called out my snark.

    I was 99% nice to you except for re-posting part of your post that you deleted...but deleting posts is a really bad thing around here and you called that on yourself. And really, how do I know you're not a man or a creep or someone just trying to stir up drama? I've given you the benefit of the doubt in all of my posts.

    There have basically been two of us responding, so therefore you included ME in your "you ladies" - thanks for letting me know I wasted my time being nice and trying explain why you got the replies you did. Any snark you read into my comments was of your own interpretation.

    I posted comments of support, but I guess you've got your panties in such a wad that you're intent on reading meanness and snark into every reply.

    Having never posted before in this forum I wasn't aware that deleting comments was so taboo. I appreciate your comments and information that you provided me and was referring to posts made to my original post by a few people. I don't understand why addressing you guys as ladies is so bad?? To answer your question, no, I'm not a drama queen and that is why I'm taken aback by some of these responses.

    Well, since you so kindly deleted your other post, I can't refer back to that one to see that anyone other than sheacox and I (the only two who posted multiple comments on THIS post) would be included in your accusation on THIS post of people being disrespectful. Clearly, by the lack of replies from others who posted in the original thread, they have all either all gone to bed or are sitting back watching the drama unfold and have no idea that you chose to chastise them in a thread that they didn't even particpate in.

    It's late. We're pregnant. We're hormonal. Group hug, and let's all get some sleep. I promise - we really aren't mean. FB is just a really touchy subject.

    I also deleted that post because I put my name on there when one poster who hasn't posted on this thread asked me for my name. I thought she was being nice and it wasn't until more people commented and laughed at her and me did I realize that she was being mean.

    I did see that part. For future reference, you can edit a post after you post it. As long as no one has quoted you, all evidence is gone...as far as I know, at least.

    She was being sarcastic, not mean.

    DDs ("Dirty Deletes" or something like that) are looked down on on every board on here. People take the time to write out replies, and it's disrespectful to delete it. There may have been a lot of snark, but I had a legit answer for you and was annoyed that I wasted my time writing out a reply.

  • It's a bit shocking getting some snark when you first join and haven't figured how the boards work yet. I can relate - I totally screwed up on one board when I first joined and innocently did the dastardly DD on another. Really great start, huh? I definitely learned my lesson lol. I too had no idea how much backlash was going to come my way because of it. Now you know :)

    Anyways - welcome to the board and congratulations on your pregnancy. I agree with the PP. It's late, we're hormonal, but we really aren't that mean. Key word - hormonal ^_^ Night!

    And just a note to the rest of the board...  I am going to throw a massive temper tantrum if one more person suggests a facebook group anytime in the next few weeks.

    usajobs is such a pain in the rear. I used to work for the state version of ICE. Sadly I think money/benefits is better doing it as a private contractor. I almost went with DEA but they wanted me to move so I declined.

  • Oh, good Lord! My bedtime prayer was "Please let that post be over!"

    Sigh...

    Other Ladybug poster (sorry, can't remember the rest of your SN), I'd suggest lying low a few days, reading other posts, checking out other boards, and then slowly come back on here (by replying to other posts first) if you want to join us. Even the ladies who have given you snarky replies are pretty nice.
