Did you forget that there are real people behind the computers screens who have written those threads and they have feelings? Is fun for you pick that person apart and mock them behind their backs and then come here and hold our hands and act all sweet and friendly to us? Does your troll forum really need to have such meanness there? Silly question to ask of a troll I guess,but seriously you have to remember that this is MOTHERING,a forum for mothers (and fathers) and some of the mamas here may be down (hello PPD) and need love and support from others.

Nobody does that.  Read what KathyMuggle and Adaline's Mama write just on this page.  No one is acting two faced.

 There could be 70 other subforums on there, it wouldn't change the fact that it was set up as a cyber bullying/bitching forum against one woman.


Really?

Now for all of those peeps who havent been subbing from the very beginning, I cannot believe anyone has time to read all of these post!


I'll say that I was afraid to ever speak up about how I felt about the moderation on MDC because saying anything "against" MDC was slapped down hard...like, never showed up in Q&S and people were warned (and/or alerted) in other parts of the board...even if it was a valid concern.

 

 

 

I'm also confused as to why the topic of people trolling MDC is just NOW getting brought up. A year ago my DDC and I were talking on FB about another group that did the exact same thing...but WAY worse (they seriously hate MDC) When one of the mamas went to say something on the board she was warned that it was "talking negatively about another forum" and not to speak of it again...the only thing that was done was making the Loss forum private. No one was told that people were snarking us. So, why is it okay NOW?

Really? Well just b/c there are no obvious signs in a persons post that makes it look like they have PPD or another depression it doesn't mean they don't have it. There's no reason for anyone to be mocking anyone in any forum. Seriously WHY do grown women need to threads from here and pick them apart and mock someone and say untrue and hurtful things about them.

Yes,the troll site got it's name from zoebird and that's just disgusting and immature.

Um, yes really.  The "we all hate and judge zoebird" club doesn't get to be akin to LLL just because they ALSO talk about BFing.  If the thing is now talking about BFing, fine, rename it.

Arg - I want sooo badly for this thread to die but the hypocrisy is killing me!!!

To those complaining about "those TWSS mamas who are being bitchy/mean/below your moral standards" :
How is that ANY different than them taking issue with and discussing MDC members or threads?! I mean c'mon - really?! Not only are you being hypocritical, but you are also reinforcing the TWWS sentiment that MDC mamas act holier than thou (or crunchier) and that anything less than perfect mdc behavior will not be tolerated.

Oh, and you can't say it refreshing to be able to say bitch?!

We don't NEED them.  We want them. 

 

If you don't like internet forums that engage in juvenile humor sometimes, that's fine.  Don't go to them.  But don't tell me what I can and can't do with my free time.  Also, no one hates zoebird.  She's been there and seen it and she's not outraged, so maybe you and gobecgo might try to settle down about it, hmmm?

If anyone could see me on my sofa drinking iced water and getting over noro while idly surfing i doubt i'd be told to "settle down".  ROFL!  Not sharing your views, JSYK, =/= jumping up and down with outrage.

 

It isn't "holier than thou" to state an opinion where the person/people in question are engaged and can read it.  I mean, keep it in perspective, i haven't picked one single poster from TWWS and set up a whole forum for ragging on them...

 

I would agree that if i were simultaneously over on TWWS it would be completely hypocritical.  But i ain't.  I think i will now joyfully employ the Ignore function, after this startling display of True Colours i will surely have more success than ever before on cutting out the sort of stuff i don't want to read.

No, it came from a post that Zoebird made that some people thought was funny. A lot of people. Some MDC members who had never heard of TWWS have even stated it in this thread. Don't be so melodramatic. You're the one who is cyberbulling, accusing us of things we didn't do and trying to shame us for them.

Who cares already choli?  Such a silly topic to be getting in a frenzy over.

This is not the first time it's been brought up. Not by a long shot. This is the first time the moderators have not removed it immediately. I'm assuming it's because of the new UA.

I completely agree.  I also feel like we're going around in circles.  

 

"That site is awful!-->have you been there?--->No it's awful!--->Try going--->Okay, I went, and it's not so bad.-->See?"  

 

Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat.  I have to wonder if the people who are only coming on now have even bothered to read the whole thread and actually see what everyone is saying.  Every time we go back to square one, it just makes me roll my eyes, because rehashing the whole thing over and over again is a little boring.  Especially since all of the TWWSers and almost all of the recent converts (if not actually converts to the site, then at least converts to accepting that the site isn't what it is being accused of) are doing a pretty good job remaining calm and patient with the people who are all frenzied.

Yes, I originally found the site on a thread very much like this one, but which was removed almost immediately.  I just happened to see the link.

I am seriously shocked that this discussion continues. I have been reading this thread here and there as well as the responses on TWWS, and I am starting to think that after I am done in my DDC, I may need a break from the cyberparenting world. Seriously. This is just silly.

I SAW IT!  Its a donkey though right?  So it would actually be "Beating a dead ass".  ROTFLMAO! ohhhh so many meanings.

Any time you make a post to any non-private internet site, you are opening yourself up to having that post picked apart and mocked. If you have a problem with that, it would be wise not to post on the internet, or to post only to boards or groups that are private. The whole internet is not going to change to protect your feelings, nor should it. You have the capability to protect yourself - we don't have to snark proof the internet for the sensitive.

I've heard some very confused and bewildered people got warnings here for posting legitimate questions about cooking with bacon, because the mods were assuming all references to bacon were hidden communication from members of TWWS. I don't know how true it is, the story has taken on an urban legend quality over there, but around the time TWWS started picking up momentum those kind of things were happening over here to our TWWS members.

As a professional, if I ever have anything to say to a client or a colleague that's off the record, I will call them instead of email though I have a phone phobia, and these are things that I am truly saying privately that I have every right to have an expectation will stay private!

 Maybe you are right - my internet experience started in 1990 with the Usenet boards and email, long before the world wide web was invented. Maybe having seen how the internet has evolved, rather than seeing it as an established entity makes a difference.
