To wonder why people like this come on the AIBU forum?

I have had a few people telling me on this forum that I shouldn't be judging another mums' parenting style or decisions. I don't have a problem with someone having this view; but i really don't understand why you would come on this forumif you have this view. Surely the whole point of AIBU is that we do give our opinion and thus are judging someone's post and that as this is mums net some of these posts will be about parenting? So AIBU to think these people shouldn't be on the AIBU threads if that is their view?

YABU we come on to jude the judgers grin

Some things are worth judging, but most of what is posted on here as 'terrible' parenting is not great, but far from terrible. There but for the grace of God etc.

madam surely that is the only way wink

I have started giving this consideration to any OP ,that way I don't accuse or misunderstand something that wasn't even said by OP in the first place ...

I do think some people take advise on here a little too serious. But then again some of the posts on here leave me gobsmacked and wondering how that person has managed to get through life so far with so little common sense!

I only come on AIBU for a chat and I phrase the question to get responses - not to provoke. The rest of the forum appears underpopulated if you want some interaction.

i agree whole heartedly lesley

aibu is asking 'aibu?

if they are posting a circumstance in which they think they are not being unreasonable then they shouldnt fucking post here and ask if they are. nobbers.

if they genuinley want advice - use another topic
