I have raved about certian products that I liked/used at one point in time and then found that they didn't hold up well, or had problems over all, and I have just stopped posting about them. I only post about things I like...

One thing that concerns me is the talk about how boring and tedious it is to answer questions about washing, or wool, or fabric... First, these comments are likely to make newcomers wary about asking questions. It feels like we are being told not to bother anybody, just check the archives. I think most of us come to these boards not just to talk about diapers but because we really do belive that cloth is best - for baby, for the planet etc. And it seems like drawing in new people is something we should all value.
Second, we are all busy trying to work, raise kids, and lead meaningful lives (In fact I just burned the kids lunch while I was thinking about whether to respond to this thread). Searching the archives and resources can be very time consuming so it is nice to be able to ask a simple (or not so simple) question and get immediate answers. Especially since there do seem to be lots of new people here and these topics are certainly not static. There are new products, new ideas, new wahms all the time. I could spend all my time reading old threads, but I would like to have time to do the fun stuff to, like show pictures of my babes or talk about a fun or frustrating stalking episode.
I have only posted one question so far on this board. And I really appreciate the thoughtful answers and suggestions given by the few people who responded.

I think my main discomfort with the constant product talk is the money! We cloth diaper for 2 reasons, ecological & financial. Looking at all of these *new* product, who's stocking, lets fight over this auction & see whos willing to spend more, threads is very discouraging. I can't help but feel a little inferior because my DD got hand-me-down prefolds & prowraps.

Can there be a sticky at the top of this forum that says "please start with FAQ". Can we rename resources to FAQ? People sometimes don't know what "recources" means. And IN recources, or FAQ, there should be directions on how to get on the list to do searches and a request for people to do a search before posting their questions. Yeah, put a disclaimer in there that if you can't find an answer, we are happy to help, but most people don't start with "Recources" or a search at ALL.

I agree with Darshini, I totally feel that this forum is all about diaper shopping. I enjoy that aspect of diapering, though so I don't mind.

I have to disagree because I just scrolled thru a few days posts & found a HUGE assortment of threads. On the first page alone, this is what I found:

My previous post was short and i didnt get to explain (I am at work).
I know that raving about a wahm isnt spam. Even raving about a friend isnt necessarily spam. But when a few wahms *always* rave about each other, whether or not they use and like the product, i consider that spam. i understand wanting to share about a product that you use and like. we all want to do that. But, when the raving becomes frequent it is frustrating, especially when you know that the wahms are friends and are doing it for each other. honestly, in some ways i feel that that is manipulating the rest of the board members but maybe i am alone in that.
i am cranky today FYI.
