My Previous Tantrum

Hello All,

I can't even revisit my last post. Clearly I was in quite the mood and in need of venting. However, I'm embarrassed by my temper tantrum regarding the ads. It was over the top, undeserved and obviously misdirected. I'd like to thank all of you out there that took the time to tolerate that and to offer constructive input. I'm not usually that impulsive but I clearly lost my cool.

Please accept my gratitude and my apology and if you'd like to comment on this not quite a question posting, please don't hesitate to do so.

Sincerely, S. :-)

What can I do next?

Thank you for modeling good human-ness (goofing, admitting to a mistake, and seeking to make up for it). Glad that you are still here.

It wasn't a tantrum - you were just griping about something that's bothered a bunch of us. I was so bothered I changed my settings - had the same complaint.

We all have those days :O)

Don't feel bad.
If the chips fall just the right way, I'm inclined to explode every so often.
Like yesterday for example.

I had a political poll call me yesterday wanting to ask me questions.
I said "Why? The elections is over! What's the point?".
She said it was for the - wait for it - NEXT - election.
I said "Are you INSANE? I don't want to hear about it till no sooner than 6 weeks beforehand. Until then DON'T CALL ME!".

we all have our moments.. and sometimes oce we voice a complaint about something it gets fixed.. we don't always know if its karma or some smart person online that did the fix. but if we don't speak up about problems then how are they going to get fixed?

I was glad you complained about it and followed what some of the ladies recommended and got ad-blocker. I didn't even know that was a thing!!
SO...because of your rant I was able to get the ad-blocker and stay on mamapedia (I was close to quitting too).
