For me, I like hitched, it was different from the rest, it was no netmums or bounty I came here and like the atmosphere of the place, there were hardly any tickers, hardly any awww huns, Obviously I can't stop people having tickers etc but it's what attracted me to hitched in the first place, good sound advice from well spoken, well articulated people. (nothing like me then!) it wasn't twee or fluffy and the sense of humour on here was fantastic.
I am not saying no one can be fluffy or be supportive but I didn't like the forums where people agreed with each other for the sake of it. this was different.
As the older members have left and new ones come in this place is changing. It's no where near as bad as bounty but it's still changing nonetheless. Now I know things change and I can't expect them to stay the same but I think the people who made this forum what it is are now so diluted, the way hitched is, is changing.
again obviously I don't own this forum and obviously everything I say matters not a jot.
I suppose thaats why I am against some of the changes, this place was different and now it feels like it's just turning into another generic baby forum.
I don't really like arguing on a board and am happy for the most that people get on
But as ever Catarina, you are right, there is more to life than forums and disputes over names changes. I really hope your daughter is ok and recovers quickly. You know where I am if you need to chat or offload.
