So I read an update to a question on a baby registry where someone who answered was a called a b***h in the what happened for only saying guys don't like baby stores. Another question calling a neighbor an idiot tells us we are all misinformed about girl scout cookies in the what happened yet she was the one who was misinformed.

God knows how many I am taking my ball and going home posts I have read in the past week. The please delete this I can't handle the truth edits.

All I want to know is what the heck is in the water?

To quote a friend, this is why I drink Vodka, it is safer! :p

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

I really need to find an app that alerts me to moon phases! :p

Guys the registry post was removed.

Mamzita, triplet was bizarre on many levels. Like how the heck did they answer their own question? If you look at the profile they really are the same person.

Brandi, can't remember the name anymore but it was a four letter name like Keri or something so you are safe. What was really strange is we all pretty much said the same thing but that one person made her snap!

Sometimes, when I think I am too sensitive or expect too much, I come here, and then I feel better about myself.

Yeah, the posts lately seem to be WAY off the normal beaten path.

I'm still thinking the weekend whiners are trolls.

My personal theory - there are some members creating new accounts and then asking whacked out questions to stir the pot.

"Hello, I was searching the internets and trying to find a place to discuss my (insert non-child rearing question), so I stumbled across MP, and decided to open an account and ask! Then I didn't like the answers from other anonymous people, so I berate them. Oh, and it's just coincidence that my very first post was a dramatic one. I'll answer questions and ask more....well...never, but that's a coincidence too."

ETA - or maybe April Fools now includes the weeks prior? :)

I like that I am gone on the weekends and miss the drama! BUT I have thought that if I was computer savvy at all I would create a new website for us "cool" mommas! But then it sounds like I am being clichish!
I just really enjoy some of you moms (ahem JoW)

For my sons birthday I soaked some GUMMY bears in Vodka. They were so yummy. It was like a chewy jello shot. Vodka makes me happy!

Might I add that things are getting a little....dull...as well as odd.
I might have to ask a political question or something to get the blood flowing. This site is getting weird and boring, don't ya think?

answers from Norfolk on

In general, I wish people would think just a little more about the wording of their posts possibly being insulting someone who is here asking for help. Also, if I read something offensive, I try to take a moment and work out if it's my own issues or the poster was trying to be deliberately insulting. Sometimes, for instance, someone's brash nature can come across quite poorly in a forum like this. If some introspection doesn't settle me down, I will sometimes send a PM asking, "Did you mean this to sound this way?"

In the case of the registry question, however, I am guessing the OP was a wackadoodle loosing the battle with her pregnancy hormones.
