Okay, I don't know how I can make this any clearer or more plain. I am CONSTANTLY repeating myself and NONE OF YOU seem to be paying attention or don't care. So, I am going to say it AGAIN and refer to the guidelines AGAIN about flagging content! Ready? Here we go...
1. slurs, stereotyping, or hate speech.
2. threats or personal attacks.
3. others posting the same thing again and again within the same group or across multiple groups.
4.. advertisements and solicitations.
Please do not flag just because someone’s opinion differs to yours, in such a large forum not everyone will agree, we are here to share our experience and advice.
For those of you who aren't clear on what an opinion is, here is the definition:
1. a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty.
2. a personal view, attitude, or appraisal.
So, just because some one says "I think people who vaccinate are uninformed" DOES NOT MEAN that comment should be flagged!!! That is a personal opinion and DOES NOT violate the guidelines!!! However, if a person says "You don't vaccinate your children because you're an idiot" THAT is a personal attack and SHOULD be flagged!!!
I am sick and tired of going through PAGES of flagged content because people don't like another person's opinions on a subject. Guess what? We're all different and thus we will all have DIFFERENT OPINIONS!!! Some times those opinions may be worded in a blunt or crude manner, which I do not encourage. If you have something to say say it tactfully, PLEASE.
I'm assuming that since we're all mothers here we're all adults. Maybe I'm wrong in my assumption, but that's what comes to mind when I think of a mother: an adult. PLEASE START ACTING THE PART, LADIES!!!!
