Phoebe, I understand your need for this knowledge. However, the Diapering Forum Guidelines have touched on this just because it leaves MDC vulnerable to allow for what could become a potential 'slam-fest.'

Disallowed in the Diapering Discussion Forum:

Quote:
2. Reviews of personal customer service issues with WAHM businesses. Discussions along this line, whether positive or negative, are not permitted on the Diapering Forum and will be removed if found. We now offer two outlets for this type of review in our FAQs and Resources Sticky and also, in our WAHM Diaper Review Forum We expect those resources to be utilized for the benefit of our members for their review and feedback needs, selecting whom they do business with and in sharing their WAHM experiences with others.
This is why I encourage mommas to go to the Review Forum, even if their experience is not divine, y'know? So, we can have a balanced review section mother's can trust.

PMs can also be utilized - or just contacting a few momms or retailers you trust that might be able to answer your question.

Thank you Heather, dear
...
I understand the need for, and respect the rules, it just can be confusing
: since so many people mention "issues" in passing, but they aren't clear for relative newbies like me. I will look in the reviews (duh), and maybe someone will PM me?


Thanks!

At one point, moved to Activism, I believe, as it was OT here.

Why is it that people can say over and over again how much they don't agree with MOE's business practices, how they aren't feeling the FB love, etc, etc, but when asked, they aren't allowed to say why? If this is the case, then shouldn't any negative remarks be censored?

Rachel, ah, the question of the century - and believe you me, one that was pondered when the Diapering Forum Guidelines were put into play.

Bottom line - we are just striving to strike a balance. We don't want to have to censor every post, chase members for edits, pull threads, etc. . . left and right, but there has to be some stopping point.

Although I believe that Phoebe has every right to know what others' experience has been with a co. BEFORE she makes a decision regard whether or not to purchase from them, our history on this board has shown that those threads turn ugly fast. After having to pull several of those threads off the forum, etc. . . etc. . . we just try to nip it in the bud before it goes there.

As a way to 'counter' this 'lack' of information (and I will agree that it seems a 'lack' of information), we opened the Diapering Review Forum in the anticipation that mommas would post their honest, tactful reviews there for the benefit of others in our community.

I know it probably doesn't even come close to answering your question, but it is the only light I can shed with regards to the 'why' behind it all. You can certainly contact Cynthia Mosher, our board administrator, with any other inquiries to this regard.

Naw...not that big a deal. And I understand, you have to draw the line somewhere. I just get bummed out when I see such negativity towards a certain person/thing/company such as what's happening. I really don't see that negativity towards any of the others, kwim? Maybe it stems from knowing more about the situation from the other end...I dunno. But...for now, I digress.

I understand your point . . . does feel sometimes as though the same WAHMs get a bit more of the negative press. Make sure if you have received a good bit of positive customer service from a WAHM that is getting a healthy does of 'negatives,' that you state it - both here and in Diapering Reviews. That helps balance as well.
