Confused

Why are some members of this board so snarky and rude to new posters that are simply seeking advice on this board?

  • The lack of menfolk hath turned us into bitter old hags.

  • I love you, Leapy.  Sometimes snark is justly deserved.
  • If you look back and read past threads, we are really a very nice group of woman who are happy to answer questions when 1) they are written in a way that is understandable and 2) they don't just come out of the blue - introduce yourself, tell us about yourself, etc....just don't ask for advice about a situation we know nothing about.

    And I can tell you that my biggest pet peeve is when posts are written in short hand (ie texting) and when it is one big run on sentence/paragraph. I am certainly not the grammar police, but reading that stuff makes my head hurt.

  • agree with 2 - if you are old enough to be on a board with the name "parenting" in the name, then you are old enough to write correctly. We are not 12. If you want good information, then ask good questions in a good format.

  • Maybe I missed a post, but I haven't seen any outright snarkiness on here in response to a new person seeking advice. If you are meaning hopefulmiracle11's thread, really I think people were quite nice considering the circumstances. Taking fertility drugs to up your chances of having multiples is irresponsible at best, and doing it without being monitored is just plain dangerous.

    BTW, if you want to see something closer to actual snarkiness in response to someone wanting twins, check out this thread (which is actually a very tame example). There are many non-snarky responses on there too, so hopefulmiracle, if you're reading this, you might want to take a look too.

  • Ladies, ladies, ladies don't you all know craftymama? She gets snarked all over these boards.  I'm certain it's just one of several AEs for her.  Leave it be and it will pass.  I take her calling us snarky as a compliment since she has sure seen her fair share.
