It’s a sad sad world

BabyCenter is making the change over to a new board software. The old boards, as a consequence, are in the process of being shut down. As a last thing many are posting about the things they remember most, the good and the bad. Unfortunately, people are taking this opportunity to highlight the bad and not the good.

Most of the threads bumped or linked are ones were people were treated like absolute garbage for their choices in parenting. An entire thread is full of nothing but personal attacks against a member who doesn’t even post anymore, the ultimate in childishness. It’s truly sad that so many negative people are raising children, and even worse, many of them are pregnant with another. It’s even sadder that no one has the guts to stand up and say THIS IS WRONG.

I thought I left high school and all the cliques picking on people who are different than them, I thought I had left the need to go with the crowd, I thought I had left needing to be ‘in’ with the ‘popular kids’ no matter how INCREDIBLY nasty they are.

Guess not.

  1. You gotta stop going over there. Can’t you see how ridiculous they are? And what’s the saying – “they must not have their own lives so they talk about others”?

    Yeah – I posted on the rollcall goodbye, don’t know why… I guess I wanted them to know I wasn’t banned and made the choice on my own… lol… but life is much grander not dealing with middle school drama, staying on the boards with women like me, blogging, and emailing good friends like you! Hugz, woman – take the 12 step challenge and wean yourself from mainstream boards! 😀
