I don't think people are getting defensive and short with her out of the blue. She seemed to have a quippy response to all of the suggestions she was getting. In those responses she told people trying to give the advice she asked to get that they don't understand anything as part of some rather unusual, lengthy posts on her views on climate change. It started as a question about adoption which she quickly spun into something else. After reading all this I'm still not sure if she was really asking advice or was just looking for a platform to talk about her ideas (some of her other threads/posts have been removed) or if this was more of an ad to attract a like minded family to adopt her baby.
