    Default Life after BH

    I joined Bh over 4 years go when I was pregnant with my first child. Whilst I feel I have gained some valuable information on parenting I have also witnessed a lot of things I don't like. Favoritism is a big thing here, if certain people say things its fine, if others do its not ok. Certain people constanly get a hard time whilst others get away with being pretty rude. All in all im taking peoples advice from my latest thread that if you don't like people's treatment then walk away.... that I will. Theres a lot of lovely people in here but my goodness theres a lot of nasty ones too.

    I will be leaving bh but please be mindful when replying to people in the future. If you only intend to make that person feel bad then don't bother. If a post is genuine and out of concern and you have a different opinion great, voice it but don't antagonize people and say things to be hurtful.

    I don't know what happened but I do agree there's some good people on here but a few that aren't. I've been a member for a while and have had to create new accounts because I've been harrassed and they even found me on FB.

    I think BH is a good reflexion of what life is.

    There a good diversity of people and some get along better than others.

    I honestly don't blame you one bit. I've read your thread and was completely shocked by some of the comments. I had one of those threads once and left because of it. Good luck

    I hope you don't leave. If your thread made a single person think twice it was worth it, especially with the known creeper on the Gold Coast at the moment. There are so many different types of people with different circumstances and history that will colour their replies and shape their opinions that it's a shame to see someone with strong opinions of their own leave.

    Without darkness, the light wouldn't seem so bright. If the blue dress didn't look gold to many people then there wouldn't have been anything to talk about on the internet for a whole day. Contrasting opinions make great debate fodder.

    Your thread got people talking and thinking. I would consider that a success.

    I've seen people say things like this before (about favouritism, bullying etc) but I've honestly never noticed it personally. Maybe it's because I don't spend enough time here.

    You need to do what's best for yourself. I understand why, there was a definite nastiness that was completely unfair and unnecessary. It seems that some people are on here simply to "catch" you out and get a rise out of you.

    There are also tonnes of awesome folk on here, they are very insightful and supportive and offer great ideas and advice.

    I hope you don't go, but if you do, take care x

    I understand exactly what you're saying OP. IMO it's the same cliquey group of people that all band together to insult and bully in a rather passive aggressive way anyone who dares to go against the grain on what they've decided is the genral consensus!!

    Their "Stepford Wives"/Troll like behaviour leaves a lot to be desired. For me personally, I really couldn't give 2 shiz's what they think/do etc. It's not like I'll be losing sleep over their (half the time) hypocritical rantings and ravings and deliberate attemps to antagonise.

    However, I do think it's time they and their posts were reported every time they offend as I believe they should be made accountable for their behaviour considering they are at times breaching the BH rules with the nasty tripe they post.

    Luv, I wouldn't leave as then they win and you by far are the better person in my books

    Haven't seen your thread op but I get why you feel the way you do. There is a group of clique posters that do band together, they can be really nasty and bully but deny it when accused of it. Some are big time stalkers too which shows to me they have nothing better to do with their time which is sad.
