I remember when

this board was always hopping and full of life.  What happened?

Re: I remember when

  • I know the old regulars started their own board, i dont know if thats still going though. The left overs who weren't invited seem to be on the national boards more. Geeze, I make one post about someone who has their heat turned off for non-payment wanting to bring a baby into the world being a bad idea &all of the sudden I'm on the bad list, lol!

  • I am SO sorry I missed this mess lol

    I came in about a year ago and it was dead - then had a pulse for like a week - then nada.  Sad.

  • I remember that post!  The board blew up that day!

    You could never address the issues, everyone was always, "oh what a great idea".

    It's still going and pretty much awesome.  Thanks for thinking of us - years later - though!

    Awesome! Thanks for still checking up on this board after all that time! :)

  • No worries, I know it's a little slow around here.  Just trying to do my part.  I hope no one is still salty over not being invited.

    Since people from that board are still lurking here to see what we are saying -- years later -- it wouldn't hurt to post every now and then! I mean, it's been over 2 years since your last post here, so it's nice to know the South Jersey nesties are still on your radar!

    Of course the South Jersey board is on the radar!  This is the South Jersey board, right? For people from South Jersey?

    I don't think any particular knesties are that imposing enough to be on anyone's "radar".

    Yup, same board as always -- same bord that you haven't posted on in 2+ years, even though you are rather active on the national boards. I think it's safe to say someone here IS imposing enough to be on your radar, or else you wouldn't have opted to post in this one thread asking where everyone went.

    I guess someone is pretty salty.  yikes! 

    Note to self, must find that tracking device and have it removed.  Quick - What board am I on now?!

  • This is way too funny.  Love when people creep on old boards just to brag about the new board lolol

  • So, just for the record, Y.A.M.I.L.Y, or whatever your name is now, do you have a habit of tracking down stats on where and when people post, or have you just been paying extra special attention to Sophie? 

    And, since we're clarifying things and all, it wasn't just the post you're referring to that kept you from joining our super-duper little club, although it certainly didn't help. (Your claim to be so "concerned" about her was so completely transparent it was laughable. Anyone who was legitimately concerned would have addressed the issue privately rather than calling her out in a public post. Your purpose was mockery, pure and simple.)  It was mainly the fact that no one knew you in real life, because you'd never come to any of the GTGs.  The roughly 40 or so girls (yep, I said 40) that left had all met each other, in most cases several times, and a large number of us keep in close contact and see each other in real life. So don't go thinking that anyone got in a snit and decided to oust you.  You didn't bother to take the time to get to know us, so why would it have occurred to us to include you?

    To answer the original post - what happened?  Well, Lily, you can take the blame for that yourself, along with a few of your little friends.  Don't get me wrong, some of the girls that came over from the Knot the same time you did seemed very nice, and none of us had a problem with those few.  The rest of you, however, just acted like a bunch of snarky little b!tches, and frankly that stopped being interesting after about 30 seconds. It was common knowledge that you would take discussions that started here, paste pieces on your Knot board and b!tch about both their content and the people who were posting.  Don't bother trying to argue this point with me, it happened more than once, and we all saw it.  You may or may not realize this, since it's so easy to be anonymous and therefore detached when you're posting on an internet site, but the people on the other end of those comments are actual human beings, with actual feelings, so when you decide to publicly stomp all over them, in writing, don't go whining about the fact that they don't want to be your friend.  M'kay?  Take a look at your own behavior before questioning anyone's disappearance.

     

     

     

  • 1) I clicked on her user name to see her profile because I had no clue who she was & since she didn't have any privacy settings on (no longer the case) I could easily see the last time she posted here. 2) How anyone - especially a "friend" - could read what 6ftWhatever was writing about her marriage & financial situation and think adding a baby would be a super idea is beyond me. 3) You will never catch me at a gtg or meeting people IRL. This isn't match.com. I come here for referrals for doctors, to talk about kids stuff in the area and the like. I have amazing friends that I've know for years and 3 kids - I'm plenty busy without adding Internet friends into the mix. So for that reason, I do miss the old regs. It's so slow and questions rarely get answered, but if have to hang out with people to find out the best place around to have a baptism party, then it looks like I'll be doing the research on my own.

     

  • And lily, don't feel bad. After they all left I found a post from JinsWife on one of the IF or Loss boards about how disgusted her and her H were that we paid for a private u/s with DD2 because my H couldn't believe we were having another girl. LOL. 

  • Where to start, where to start...hmmm....

    1) I clicked on her user name to see her profile because I had no clue who she was & since she didn't have any privacy settings on (no longer the case) I could easily see the last time she posted here.  - Of course it's no longer the case!  Had I known that someone was tracking my movements, I would have done it sooner!  This isn't the first time you've "nest-stalked" someone either... 

    2) How anyone - especially a "friend" - could read what 6ftWhatever was writing about her marriage & financial situation and think adding a baby would be a super idea is beyond me. - A friend wouldn't feel the need to broadcast their disapproval on a public message board.  That's more the MO of a cruel, mean-spirited person. 

    3) You will never catch me at a gtg or meeting people IRL. This isn't match.com. I come here for referrals for doctors, to talk about kids stuff in the area and the like. I have amazing friends that I've know for years and 3 kids - I'm plenty busy without adding Internet friends into the mix.  - Hey, rest of the SJ board, translation = she doesn't need you all and is put-off by the idea that you guys get together IRL. 

    So for that reason, I do miss the old regs. It's so slow and questions rarely get answered, but if have to hang out with people to find out the best place around to have a baptism party, then it looks like I'll be doing the research on my own. - You've really inspired a sense of community, good luck with getting questions answered now.

    Oh, and Lily, you should feel badly.  You took one woman's heartbreaking struggle and made a mockery out of it.  That's what happened to the board.  What a walk down memory lane this has been.

    I don't remember many of the details of the "heating service/don't have a baby" posts but I will say this:  This is a public message board and anyone is allowed to comment.  If a person is willing to put details of their personal life on the board you can expect opinions from other posters (both positive and negative).  I'm not saying this to defend anyone...it's just the way it is.  I understand that some people want to take that public element away from a message board and create a private one...I can respect that. 

    What irritates me though is the claim that ALL 40 of these ladies know one another so well.  I remember the call for G2Gs just after I was married at the end of 2008 and from what I recall the one or two that actually took place only had 10-15 girls tops attend before the board imploded because of the C&P fiasco (if memory serves correctly).  Just call it what it is...only certain people got an invite...whatever; but keep that board separate from this one.  If you want to lurk over here and post occasionally go for it (I have zero issues with anyone [private & public board])...I just don't understand the point of posting here with a reply along the lines of "I'd answer over here but we have a private board and you're not on it; sorry".

  • Wow.  Im really late on this one but I just caught wind of it and since my name was thrown in the mix I feel I must retort.  The comment that I made was on a  "flame free confession" post.  My "confession" had to do with my heater BREAKING (not being turned off) and it would cost about $2000 to fix.  Since it was late September, and I am a teacher and all my savings were eaten up in the summer, I didnt have the 2k to fix it at the time.  I was also at the beginning of my TTC journey, which ended with a gorgeous baby after 4 IUI's.  SO I was frustrated that I was still not pregnant.  Then came the FLAMES.....in the flame free confessions....ya see where peoples frustration was?  It ended with MissMod chiming in about my suffering marriage, which was total horse$hit. On top of that, many of the girls who came to my defense, and eventually left to form our own board, knew me well enough to know that I was not irresponsible and smart enough to know what I was doing. 

     However that was just the beginning of the mess over here.  THen all of the knesties, led by ringleader Lilly, would attack everything anyone said about wanting a child and the expression "baby rabies" was used to describe us.  I also remember a never ending post about not understanding why Barack Obama being elected was such a big deal, and the incredibly intelligent saying of "I am sure all of the former presidents were a little black, so what is the big deal".

     Unfortunately there are/were quite a few of us who were struggling with IF, many of us have found our miracle babies and I am hoping that none of you ladies who also have since had children had to ahve that kind of struggle. 

     And you will be happy to know, since you were soooo "concerned" that my child has never been without heat, electricity, water, food, shelter, air conditioning or love from her happily married father and I.

     I dont understand how you have time to involved yourself in all of this when you have 3 kids, I AM just getting caught up and I only have 1.
