Just so slimy to sit around and go "oh poor girl" amongst themselves under the guise of caring. Using someone else's pain for entertainment is so pathetic. Won't go back again- too creepy.

I would really like to see mothering inform every user on this board about the "planted" discussions!  I feel like it is their responsibility to somehow inform every user on here that threads started by Mothering may be posted on facebook.

 

Looking through one of the threads I saw mamas with pics of their kids as avatars, usernames that could be real names, and siggys with birthdays.......

 

While I think it is perfectly within their rights to do what they are doing, and great that they are asking the community here- hearing us out- and offering suggestions, I like the planted threads they are fine----

 

But I do not think mothering.com is doing it with clean hands until they inform every user on here about it first.

 

The mamas on here need to know, and have the option of changing their avatars, usernames, siggys, if they feel the need to do so.

 

 

I suggest adding a siggy that allows posters to see that their posts may be shared elsewhere.... or sending a pm to notify every person on here.

Yeah, the planted discussions annoy the heck out of me. I don't participate in them.


If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

I just checked too. I'm on there, and some of the information is correct. Some though...totally wrong! Makes me wonder how they gathered it.I'm guessing the phone number and address is from the phone company..that's public, right? They probably piece together other stuff from Facebook and Twitter, if you're on there. For a price, you can have information on my house layout, my income level, my interests, even my astrological information. Not necessarily accurate information though.

I don't post on them, either. I deliberately have made the decision in my life not to be Fbook user.

I will not participate either! Since so many are are just reworded original posts from actual users if I feel the need to respond I do so in that thread but even there I am cautionary

 

I am a FB user but my only "friends" are IRL life ones and relatives. It's an easy way to stay in touch since we are all over world. The only pages I "like" ares ones I am personally committed too ie: a few local charities and some family pages.  I will never "like" mothering or any other commercial site.
