It means someone Pmed you a poem (as do other such references like Boo and thankful). There was a discussion in TAO, with people explaining the meaning and others mentioned that they refused to write it in their siggy because it felt like a 'cool club'. There is also a thread in finding your tribe that I saw which is for people who "have never been xyz".

It's just another attempt by grown women to act childish and EXCLUDE those they do not find worthy of including in their little club.

There is no "little club"

I was "frosted" by someone I have never spoken to or noticed before. It's just a little snow poem going around, and at the end it says something like spread the love and frost someone who hasn't been frosted yet. No big deal... before I received it I thought it must be something that a small group of close friends were doing, but it's not.

i assumed being "booed" was when you got in trouble with admin for saying something......mean, flaming, etc.

Amy~ If this were true and everyone were passing this "love" around there would be far more people with the signature, now wouldn't there?

It's a "little club" because it's a secretive thing going around to only certain members.

It's only goal will to hurt and allienate mamas on this board.

Yes, I "passed the love" to about 20 people that I do not know.
This is really being made into something it isn't.

I didn't take it that way...I got the PM from someone I don't know very well, it includes instructions to pass it on to "three others," so I did...but all three also being members I don't know very well. I'm honestly not in any kind of "cool" club and hadn't even noticed the siggies until I got the poem It almost seems like the old game of telephone to me...

Oh no no no, I don't think that's true. Each person who gets "frosted" is told to forward it to three other people who have not already been frosted. The point is, I think, to frost everyone BUT if some think it's too sillyl to do, well, it's stopping in its tracks.

I have never been "boo'd" nor was I "thankful" but I did get the Frost poem and was tickled pink. It is silly, but I don't think it's meant to be hurtful.

I thought it was really neat, but not because I was now part of some club. It was because the poem is really cute. So I passed it on so that others could enjoy the poem as well.

I have never seen the poem and don't care one way or the other. More than creating alienation or exclusion as a goal, I think it is aimed at creating inclusion with the unfortunate side effect of creating the other feelings along with it. Such is life I suppose.

I just got poo'd on, so I'm, happy.

Yes, that's why my little club is truly inclusive. Either you've been poo'd on or you've poo'd on someone else at one time in your life. No one gets left out. But, I'm cool like that.

I have been curious too. As a grown woman, I think it is cute. If I get it, great, I'll pass it on. If I don't, I don't see how it will hurt me.

I got it and was too lazy to change anything. Hope nobody thinks I"m a snob. I may yet get around to it... but maybe not.

I kept seeing it and figured it was a secretive club too. If I got it pm'd to me I wouldn't add it to my sig for fwd it. If it was being posted in the forums for all to read fine, but since it's going by PM it's exclusive and alienates those who aren't cool enough to get PM'd. JMO

Exactly, if it were for everyone then everyone should be getting it, but they aren't.

So it DOES alienate other mamas.

It isn't exclusive. I got it from someone I don't know, and sent it to a few people that I also don't know. It can show up in anyone's PM box at anytime.
I think it is just fun thing to pass around. But I guess I will be careful who I send it to, so as not to offend if they didn't want it.

If I still had the poem I would post it and then everyone who reads this will be frosted!!

My only issue was that the people who got frosted when I did was who I would have sent it to!!
