    Default Yep...

    I think I am going to leave P.org... I didn't realize that this site is as bad with their selectivism as other pregnancy sites. It just doesn't seem like the same place it was when I was on here with DS. It isn't our birth board, but I am just not feeling it anymore. I wish you all happy and healthy pregnancies.

    I am lazy here is my official response to what Missy sent me.
    Ok, I have rewritten this reply a few times, I try to be judicious with my words and say what I mean, not just the first thing that pops in my mind.

    If they wish to be a closed group and not have outsiders post, shouldn't it actually be a closed group. What I have posted on their board I have edited myself many times, I am not down talking anyone, I did not call anyone names, but this is the treatment I received. If non-members only saw that post would they want to join pregnancy.org, the elitist club where you have to have been here a long time in order to post? If this is the sort of thing that went on in the five years since I was active, then I can't blame others who have left or not joined if this is the treatment that is acceptable. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and I would have loved to hear them out on their views.

    I do not feel like completely leaving pregnancy.org, but I don't think that I can be as active a member and I am not sure I can recommend it to others as I have done in the past. I have moderated teen boards where there wasn't cattiness such as what I have seen here. I have quit jobs to get away from people who act like they still live in the high school cafeteria, and I don't wish to subject myself to it in my free time. I am not mad that they posted about a controversial subject, I have issue with the fact that I was basically told to "STFU and GTFO".
    So, I may not disable my account today. But I just don't think I will be posting as much, I know some of y'all probably think I am a blithering idiot (albeit a pretty entertaining one at times) anyways. Good night, and I guess if you want to talk to me shoot me a pm or something.

    Sorry you feel that way.

    Everyone is human. No, I'm not excusing ANY behavior that you felt was inappropriate and made you feel bad...

    Honestly, I have not been on a single site where some sort of "bickering" and "just plain rudeness" hasn't taken place. I frequent a homeschool forum with many supposed "women seeking to love others as Jesus loves" and they can be the worst of all!!! Yep, I could have left that site years ago. I don't though. I try to avoid as much of "it" as I can. I'm not going to let other people ruin what is otherwise a great site. Honestly, we all say and do things from time to time that are rude or that is how other other people perceive our comments whether we mean it that way or not... We ALL make mistakes, we are ALL judgmental at one time or another. We ALL need to improve.

    Anyway, I'm really sorry you are feeling hurt right now!! No one should ever make you feel that way... I'm not going to try and tell you to stay if your heart is not in it. Only you know what you want to expose yourself to, and what you don't. I too have periods where I post frequently on this site, and times where I don't. If this forum fits into my life then I visit, if it doesn't then I leave. Usually I leave because it just soaks up too much of my time, but I do enjoy posting when I'm pregnant.

    Anyway, I wish you the best whatever you decide.

    I am not feeling hurt. I really just dislike associating with people like that, like to the point of it spoiling anything it touches.
