Is it just me?...

Is it just me or are some people on here very eager to cut you down about anything you say. I am new on here and I have really enjoyed reading other peoples stories and I know none of this is private but I would think something like this would be something we could all go to to just discuss what bothers us or concerns or just to share great or sad news. Just wondering if anyone has felt like this too....

Re: Is it just me?...

  • Some people on here look for any reason what so ever to insult and knock others down but for the most part everyone is friendly and helpful. You just have to ignore the bad, ugly and insulting stuff and focus on those that are truly supportive and willing to offer useful advise.
  • Many don't always appreciate the same person starting 5 threads in 10 minutes... keep that in mind if you don't want the snark.

  • Oh em gee they are all soooo mean and totally don't know my lyfe.

    this is the internet filled with all different types of people in all different types of moods. I'm an honest person and that can come off as mean. I don't sugar coat stuff.

  • You should read a previous post I wrote and the comments I got for sharing my thoughts!!!

    Say whatever you want and dont worry about the mean people. Theres more nice ppl than mean : )

    Welcome!

  • This board is tame compared to others on the bump. There are also other boards in the internet that are 100% puppies and rainbows. The bump is full of snark, that's just how things are.

  • OH and ps. It's not a good idea to have your full name as your profile name. I found you in all of like 2 seconds on facebook. =/ It also helps if your profile picture isn't your avatar...

    Just some simple internet rules to live by to keep people safe and all.

  • lol I totally agree! I can't believe how many people use a pregnancy board to vent out...on strangers! wow! Even the simplest posts end up with someone rude, I've had it happen to me just recently. When I am reading other people's threads, I either comment nicely or, if I don't agree with what they're saying, I simply push the back button like any other mature adult would do lol!!!!!

  • If you are going to make a redundant post and then point out it was redundant you are probably going to get snark ijs. Since you haven't been around long and you pointed that out you have no idea that many of these ladies are supportive and while can be brutally honest sometimes it is needed. Nothing is sugar coated here.

    :::eye roll::: Hey drama queen. Someone is a bit crazy cakes. You need to take it down a notch. I was just pointing out that it's stupid to have your whole flucking name as your username. People do crazy sh!t on the bump/ the internet. It's all about safe guarding yourself. Take the advice or don't, that's your issue.

    And yes.. I'm a terrible, horrible, vile human being with a very unhappy life which is transferring to my uterus and is making my baby evil, too.

    How the hell did you figure me out? Do you have ESP? Are you a mind reader? Do you have a degree in psychology? If so, You need to find a new job, honey because you suck at it.

    See, this is one of those posts that you actually should consider as helpful. You don't need to be a member to read these posts and anyone with ill intentions wouldn't bother to give you a heads up, but all you see is snark.

     

    So how is Benji? It looks like you had fun at Megan's Birthday. I hope you don't intend to continue smoking those cigars. It's not good for baby. Know what's also not good for baby? The comments that tell where you live. Better consider checking your privacy settings. While you're at it, get a new Bump SN and shut this one down.

     

  • Also, I think your purple chair is ugly.
  • I <3 these threads!

  • Sweet!! I made a bet with a friend who is also on The bump that the phrase "crazycakes" would be used and now I'm up 15 bucks!!! Keep it going ladies, as we each have a few phrases picked and the bet continues! Thanks for being so predictable.
  • omg, today is just not some people's day.  there's some crazy baby shower/1st tri butthurt going on today, too.  

    OP, the other poster was just trying to inform you that any creep-o can see what's going on on your FB and if you don't take more efforts to keep your information safe, you're going to have lots of people looking at all your shiz.  Just something you might want to consider, you know, with a baby and all. 

     

    But what do I know...I just creeped on your FB wall and I've never met you :

    That would be second trimester, not 1st and I wouldn't call it butt hurt because I was asking a question and I got the answers I needed. I do agree though, make sure you protect yourself and don't use full names, or pics and keep up with privacy settings. It's a scary world we live in. She could have told you without being so harsh but for some people that's just their way. Don't take it personal.

    Absolutely NOTHING she said in that post was in any way harsh. It was simply straightforward.

    Just because she didn't say "Oh, dearie, you might want to be REAALLLY careful about having your real name be your Bump name, because that means all kinds of CRAZY people can find you on Facebook!" doesn't mean she was being harsh. She was being normal and talking to the OP like she was a fellow adult, and not a slow 9 year old.

    Nothing was harsh about the way I told her. I actually left all snark out of it. I didn't say HEY, NOOB/ dumb a$$, etc, your sh!t is out there for the whole world to see. I just didn't sugar coat it or tongue her butt hole. It's her privacy. She's lucky she even got a heads up.

    LOL, obviously she was pretty butthurt about it if she thinks that this board should know the "mean" responses she got on 2nd tri.  

    Like we all know everyone else's posts on every other board.

    I never said anything about mean responses. I said that I got what I needed. I didn't even know that another post regarding a baby shower had been posted until you pointed it out.

  • Duuude, chill it's the Internet.

    Not even trying to be mean OP, but this is the way it is around here. It will never change and honestly these types of post don't go over well at all.

  • I love these random "you're all soooooooo mean," posts.

    Entertainment at its finest. Especially because the majority of the time the OP doesn't ever respond.
