Whether to this response or that to "which restaurant should I go to in MK" I am sure that many people will show that they have the inability to respond in a manner befitting that of a helpful response or even one of a differing opinion done with humility. I suppose I will think twice about ever posting again for fear of being torn a new one. Thanks for the eye opener.
"Be kind, be helpful and if you can't be, don't respond."

I don't take kindly to being told how I should respond on a discussion board by anyone other than the moderators and owners of that board. If they have an issue with the types of responses given by any poster, then they will address it as they see fit.

You started a thread to complain about how mean some posters are and tell those meanies to either post nothing but nice things or don't post at all. I interpreted your post as you lecturing. See, what you interpret as snarky, I may as interpret as funny and what you interpret as helpful, I may interpret as lecturing. Just as I proved (to you) that people can't help but be nasty, you proved to me that some people are offended by any sort of disagreement or differing opinion.

Really? If you weren't trying to lecture or teach, what were you trying to do?

I'm going to go ahead and snark away and say that I'm getting pretty sick of all these "tisk tisk tisk" threads ("shame on you people.") This is the internet - yep you sure do get neutral responses. Neutral means honest.... good AND bad. If you want all good, you have to talk to your friends.

This is by FAR the tamest board on the internet. By far!

Here's the thing, if you come on and ask "what restaurant would be a good place to celebrate a birthday" you will get a different response than if you ask which restaurant will give me something for free for a birthday.

If you just want ideas, you will get lots of good ones without much snark, but if you come one here wanting to get freebies, yes you will get lots of responses you don't want to hear. Same with asking about free upgrade.....Just saying its what you are asking that brings out the snark in people.

I'm honestly surprised there's not MORE snark to go around. I see so much patience and great answers on tons of threads, where the question could have been easily answered with a simple google search, or just scrolling down the page a little bit. I lurked on here for a long time before I signed up, I like to get a feel for a place before I feel comfortable adding my 2 cents.

These things always come back to what I tell my DH all the time "don't ask the question if you don't want the answer." I have to tell myself that all the time with DD3. The other day I really wanted ice cream, and I asked her if she wants to go get ice cream and she says no.

No kidding. So often I want to type, "what did Google say when you searched?"

But I started out on Urbanbaby and Gawker, so this seems like Romper Room.

I don't know either of those sites, but love the Romper Room comment - so fitting. I got warned once here for being Sarcastic and once for putting a letter followed by "---". This place is pretty tame
