I think it’s hard to really do anything since this is an online community. For all we know, it could be a completely made up story. I don’t usually read the super emotional/dramatic posts, but I did get frustrated with the post you are referring to. Mostly because it seems like nobody cares about the kids. But like I said, who knows if it’s even a true story.

It drives me nuts too. I don’t understand other people’s priorities sometimes…

i hear ya. i am a nurturer by nature and i want to be able to help all those who seem in need! when it comes to posts about neglected kids (i can think od few of those in the last couple months) i get REALLY upset because children rely on the adults in their life to help them. simply knowing there is a kid out there who is suffering really bothers me. in a perfect world we’d be able to report these posts to the right jurisdiction and have the kids get help asap…

but this is the murky would of the interwebz … i just wish at the least there was a way we could flag these posts for concern and maybe a mod could just follow up?

Well…

I tend to take them with a grain of salt. Even if they’re genuine, it’s one person’s side of a family situation. (If you’re talking about the one where the ex wife is having sex with her brother, the FI has been managing his stage IV cancer with nothing but vitamins for the past six years, etc. I have a feeling there’s some hyperbole there.)

@TwoCityBride:  I got REALLY upset about a year ago when someone posted that their husband liked teenage porn and had it on his computer. He told her he did not like little girls in real life. I was livid and lost my cool about someone posting something so sick. The poster said she wanted advice and “support.” I told her she was married to a pedophile and she needed to call the dang cops! Well, I learned my lesson, I try not to get involved in post like that any more.

@Elvis:  yeah that one i am a little skeptical of. i usually get weary when anyone posts 2 or more insane situation posts within a day… it seems like they could be trying to stir the pot…

@bostongirl27:  Ditto!  It’s hard to be a nurturer and read these kind of posts–real or not.  It makes me sad for the world if these are all true.  I’ve truly felt sick to my stomach from reading some of these and FI notices my mood shift.  

Especially when you pour yourself into a long post thinking it will make a difference or be the catalyst for them to get help in real life and they never do.  Like one of the girls who posted a week or two ago about her abusive FI?   Nothing changed.  I feel like a lot of us bees empatheize, try to help and nothing changes.  Two HUNDRED people respond and it falls on deaf ears when OPs spend the entire time rationize why their situation isn’t actually bad.

Le sigh.  I’ve decided to skip the emotional board for the time being.  Especially as it usually isn’t wedding-related at all.

@Soladylike:  I’m not sure about the specific post you are referring to, but its important to note that “Teen” Porn refers to young-looking but very much legal 18-22 year old women who naturally look, or are dressed up to look younger. Its a fetish – its not pedophilia.

 

@TwoCityBride:  I agree its disturbing, but unfortunately there isn’t much you/mods can do when its online. I think a lot of it is also exaggerated if not completley made up. I don’t always call it out, but usually when those UBER dramatic posts happen, there are usually inconsistencies, contradictions, or things that just don’t add up.   The ones that may be real, well, the best you can do is give honest advice and know that you did all that you’re in the position of doing.

I know what you are talking about and believe you me if I knew her location and real name I’d be on the phone with CPS lickedy split. Often times people post things online because they want to unburden themselves in a safe place so I don’t doubt the truth of some of the crazy shit that’s been posted here. Makes you wonder what goes on behind closed doors if they will willingly admit such shocking crap.

I was (and still am) worried about KateByDesign’s friend 🙁

EDT: I haven’t seen the post you are referring to, but if I had, I’m sure I would be worried about that child as well :-/

@mandypop:  No, he was attracted to and had actual child porn. Which is sick and illegal. I clearly know the difference in young adults marketing themselves as “barely legal” and a sicko who has attraction to young preteen and teenage girls.
