Nothing wrong with the OP’s question, nothing at all… But there is something wrong with these responses from Shabbychic. What a be-otch.

I am confused? (Tuesday?)


What is with the “Tuesday” posts? I feel like I am missing something and can’t quite gage what the posts are about in relation to it being Tuesday? Can someone clue me in??:blush:

Posted by Shabbychic

Um, It’s Tuesday. They are daily thread posts.

You know that, since you’ve been posting here.. but not all new people understand what daily threads are.. especially when there are more than one of them!

OK. Settle down.

    Shabbychic is pretty much always at least mildly bitchy. I’m pretty sure she thinks she is better than the hoi polloi and riff-raff on DS.

  2. kmr says:

    So she gave a very direct answer without sugar coating it. Who cares!

    Lets talk about Beckles getting banned for wahm bashing and threatening DS memebers instead. *popcorn*

  3. DramaBore says:

    Does anybody know what exactly Beckles did? I don’t recall seeing any drama around her.

  4. kmr says:

    I think she ran her mouth a little too much, talking crap about certain DS members, I think she thought she was under the radar b/c she was in the Goodmama chat.

    And a few days ago she was going nuts saying she was going to take a certain WAHM down b/c she thought she sold her longies she had been waiting to to someone else? But the wahm didnt…. Beckles is craazy.

  5. MatildasMum says:

    Come on. Open the freaking thread and read through it. It really doesn’t take that long to figure out what they mean. That momtocarli sets off my radar for some reason.

  6. luvmyb says:

    Shabbychic is not an ass. Give me an f-ing break. How is calling someone an ass any different than what you are supposedly calling her out on? I didn’t see Shabbychic calling anybody an ass.

    That question asked by the OP was freaking stupid. I mean, honestly. She also set off my radar when I read the thread last night. Who seriously can’t figure that out themselves? Shabbychic gets SO much grief on here…Moreso than any other regular DS’er lately, it seems.

    I think it’s entertaining to read this blog, and I know that everybody has a right to their opinions, but I just seriously hate to see vindictiveness between women. Its just sad.

  7. Tara says:

    Can I just say that I am soooo glad the old background is back on here?! It feels like home again. ;o)

  8. Ashley says:

    #4 I saw that…I truely think she’s a little weird having this massive stash for a baby she may never get.

  9. Yup says:

    Wow, 4 hours past and this isn’t linked here yet?

    Yup, I was watching it, lol. It is up now.

  11. Jale says:

    #9- all she has to do is call PP and file with them and they will work with her.

  12. Just Peachy says:

    If you read Meg’s posts, thats just how she is. She’s very blunt and I don’t see anything wrong with it.

  13. Funneh says:

    To all who say she was just giving an answer and not “sugar-coating” it… that would like saying the “It’s Tuesday. They are daily thread post” part of her response. The “Um.” before is rude. The second response – rude.

    I don’t think she’s particularly picked on.

  14. Mud says:

    It was a stupid question.
    But yes, the response was still very bitchy.
    Esp. the settle down part.

  15. Kayleen says:

    I thought it was bitchy, DS is kind of a scary place when you havent been around much… it could have been worded much better. Whats the point in being so rude? And no, it didnt have to be “sugar coated” but jeez.

  16. Zooby says:

    Her response was bitchy, it was the ‘um’ part. Yeah it was a dumb question, but why go out of your way to be snobby about it? Just answer the question or ignore it, it’s not hard.

  17. ABCDEFG says:

    I love Meg. I love the fact that she is bitchy. She says what she means and not some bullshit.
    If you can figure out how to start a thread and ask what all the day of the week threads are about then I imagine that you can figure out the day of the week threads are. It was stupid.

    Anybody know what Beckles said to threaten a member? I know that she flat out threated a WAHM that she would destroy her business. Was that it? I’m really amazed how long it took her to get banned.

  18. me123 says:

    Shabbychic ALWAYS comes across as a bitchy, know-it-all snob. What else is new? I wish they’d ban her for being a biotch.

  19. luvmyb says:

    You tools are pathetic. Honestly. It’s just so depressing to come on this blog and read this mean crap all the time. It’s so horribly unhealthy, unhelpful and pointless.

    Yay! It’s fun to make fun of people! Yay! It makes me feel good to talk bad about people I’m jealous of on DS b/c they won’t come on this crappy website and defend themselves.

    Are we in 8th grade again? Oh, that’s right…Nope. We’re MOTHERS. Grown women.

  20. kmr says:

    lol! Ds can’t ban her for being a bitch, and if you all think she’s such a bitch, you should get along with her great, right?

  21. Grogwench says:

    Isn’t it funny that the ones that are handslapping the bitchy are being bitchy themselves?

    Pot, meet kettle!

  22. Bloo♥Skadoo says:

    #19 AND yet here you are reading the blog. I can 100% say I am not jealous of anyone on DS.

  23. DSDM2 says:

    I could care less. If I am not mistaken we once did a blog almost exactly like this on Tararaboomdeea (however you spell that)

    No one is picking on ShabbyChic or is out to get her. She acted like an ass, I can honestly say, I am a blunt person but have never been that big of a bitch to a newb. She had a good question, I mean WTF, why are there so many “tuesday” posts?

    I could care less if you don’t like to read the blog or if you do. I don’t make a living here, I don’t run ads, I do this because I want to. You come here b/c YOU want to.

    I don’t hand slap, and I don’t send over others to fight my battles. If Shabby doesn’t like what we said, she can come tell us. She doesn’t need her friends to fight for her.

    With that, I am off for the rest of the day, I have a lot to do now that the holiday is over and I have another to prepare for.

  24. kaya says:

    Shabby Chic has established herself as a shady bitch. She doesn’t defend herself as honest observations are impossible to defend yourself from. She has no comeback to the truth. Except, of course, wahhh, and she gets people to do that for her. And I’m not talking about this mild bit of bitch, really- this is nothing compared to her craptastic business practices and spam-lifestyle. People “pick” on her because she is someone whose ongoing suckiness JUST GETS OLD.

  25. kmr says:

    What the hell are you talking about #24?

  26. Katzmark06 says:

    Kaya could you please explain what you mean my business practices, Meg does not run any biz and she always ships quickly.

    I think ya’ll are jealous;) I know I am 😉

  27. Stacey2 says:

    I’ve always liked Meg, I think her bitchiness is kind of refreshing every now and then. The part I hate is the people who blow sunshine up her ass all the damn time. She’s a sahm who has money to spend and a nice camera. I am also really tired of the whole “you must be jealous” thing. Meg has been a downright bitch on more than a few occasions, but everybody wants to be friends with the popular girl…right?

  28. MatildasMum says:

    Shady? Meg? Hardly.

  29. DSDM2 says:

    I can say that I never have seen where she was shady about anything.

  30. What a Wanker says:

    Shabbychic is a bitch. I said it before and I’ll say it again. Bitch. Period. And it’s nothing to be proud of either. And if you like her because she’s a bitch, then you are a bitch too. The way she acted and treated a newbie in that thread was uncalled for, unjustified and I would not want to be associated with an asshat like that.

  31. DramaBore says:

    I haven’t seen any shady practices from Shabbychic, either…but I still think she is a hag. There is nothing wrong with being blunt, but there is no need to talk down to people. And I think it’s silly how people worship the ground she walks on (though she does have an amazing wool stash).

  32. MatildasMum says:

    Who worships her? I’m not seeing that, either.

  33. Just Peachy says:

    I definitely don’t worship her but I’ve seen ppl who do simply because they want something from her. Frankly I think its dumb to befriend someone simply because you are hoping they will give you something in return.
    However Meg has been nothing but nice to me and I enjoy her posts. I don’t think it was cool the settle down comment but her first post in that thread wasn’t really all that bad. I’ve seen far worse.

  34. trolltastic says:

    the nice camera comment was bitchy. meg IS a bitch but her photography is amazing, and frankly i’d like to see any one go get a d700 and try to even take 1/2 as good a pic as meg does. camera don’t take the picture, a person does.

  35. Katzmark06 says:

    its a D3

  36. What a Wanker says:

    trolltastic:

    What the hell does that have to do with anything? If someone can take nice pictures that gives them license to be a nasty bitch? I don’t get why we should care if she can take pictures or not. Unless of course you are for some stupid reason trying to spam for her.

  37. Stacey2 says:

    trolltastic, I was sort of referring to the fact that people act like she’s some famous photographer. Lots of people could be great photographers, not everyone can afford the equipment. Honestly though, with a nice camera and good photo editing software, great photos are not hard to come by. I’m not saying she has no talent (I never did) but let’s not pretend that the right equipment doesn’t make all the difference.

  38. werd says:

    wow, reading these replies is WAY more entertaining than reading the original thread! Where’s my popcorn???

  39. werd says:

    PS YAY for the old style of the drama of ds! feels like home!!

  40. Shabbychic says:

    Call me a bitch, fine. I am not going to sit here and defend myself against being called a bitch, or rude or whatever else you feel like calling me. I am also not going to sit here and defend whatever other crazy made up stories you make up about me and my family. But, I will not sit by, be alerted to and read comments posted insulting my photography and just let it go. DO I have good equipment, yes I do. Does it make ALL THE DIFFERENCE? No it does not. I have worked hard and long to get where I am. Next time you have a chance, you can pick up “the right” equipment and the “right” editing software and lets see what you come up with. So, carry on with your comments about my bitchy posts. That’s fine with me. But, do me a favor, keep it on topic. Don’t bring my camera into it. Carry on.

  41. luvmyb says:

    And what the f ever WANKER, lol. Personally, I think it’s not too nice or becoming to call people bitches, but that’s just me.

    Meg is a good person, a good friend, and yes, I will stick up for her because you guys are wrong, and I don’t like reading it.

    Oh, and I have a good camera and Photoshop and my photos suck some serious ass. There’s a hell of a lot more to photography than technology, lol.

    Ugh. Reading this crap stresses me out. I shouldn’t do this before bed again, lol.

  42. werd says:

    oh snap

  43. Stacey2 says:

    well, it seems we have a difference of opinion. I still stand by what I said. I have the right camera and the right editing software, and the pictures I took with my old camera are embarassing by comparison. I get asked to photograph people/events all the time. I never said you weren’t talented, but you can read whatever you want into what I said.

  44. jeruco says:

    The right camera and right software can take really great photos. Its still takes a good eye to get an amazing shot. I dont think any of us really know if she has talent or not. Its not really any of our business anyhow.

    Whether or not you think she was rude or not is something to discuss.

    I just think people follow her like lemmings. Like if they respond in her threads then they are close to the cool person or she might like them. I am not sure why they care.
    Its not like she is going to just decided to send you her wool or diapers because you responded to her thread.
    Yes, people do post in her threads because of who people think she is. Or because she makes is SO obviously that she is rich and has a great stash. Some people are drawn to that stuff and want to be “near” it.

  45. Just Peachy says:

    #44 and ITA but not everyone who likes her, responds to her posts, and/or defends her does it for that reason.

  46. What a Wanker says:

    #41 WTF ever. If you want to kiss her ass, be my guest. I call it like I see it and if someone wants to make a nasty comment like that, just because she thinks she can, she is being a major bitch. Why be so nasty to a newbie if you aren’t a psycho bitch? why not just move on and leave it alone? Hmmm, maybe because she is a self-serving bitch. And I will tell you I can absolutely be a bitch at times, but I reserve that for those who deserve it (like now! 🙂 ), not those who are just asking a simple question. That makes Meg’s bitchiness much worse IMHO.

  47. luvmyb says:

    Ok, let me make sure I have this straight. Wanker is allowed to judge others, call them bitches, claim people are kissing ass, etc…Oh, she’s also justified in BEING a bitch, but only when she decides its okay for her to be one.

    Gotcha.

  48. Shabbychic says:

    That is hysterical, Wanker, really. You reserve being a bitch for those who deserve it. And who decides when they deserve it? Oh, right you do. So your bitchiness is justified, but only when you say so. Bwhahahahahahahahaha. But me? Oh right, you don’t justify it, so my bitchiness is worse than yours. I love it. Now I have read it all. Of all the comments made here, that is the best one yet. So great, in fact I needed to reply. Let me just get it straight in my head one more time. Wanker=ok to be a bitch when she thinks so. Shabbychic=not ok to be a bitch when Wanker doesn’t think so. I’ll double check with the world according to Wanker next time I decide if I want to be a bitch. I love it. I love it. Wanker, thank you so much for letting us all know that when you are a bitch it is ok.

  49. trolltastic says:

    stacey and wanker, fucking jealous much? if i were trying to spam her i would have looked up her website and posted it.
    and yes, i know plenty of people with DSLR’s and photoshop that look WORSE than regular point and shoot cameras. you can’t just pick up a DSLR and be fabulous, which is what you are saying. if you have a “nice” camera and “the right editing software” and your pics are great, then you obviously taught yourself how to use your camera.

  50. trolltastic says:

    also, i am not defending the way she acts on DS in the least, i am just saying its petty and shows your jealous when you bring up photography. come on.

  51. Stacey2 says:

    really troll? You read that much into what I said? Jee wiz, you just said yourself that knowing how to use your camera is key to getting great pictures, I sort of thought that was a given. That’s ALL I was saying…right equipment (why spend the money and not learn how to use it??) makes great pictures easy to come by. I never said awe-inspiring, or award-winning, or fabulous…but whatever. I point out the obvious and I’m jealous. Guess I’m missing something.

    Meg, you’re a bitch and sometimes I think its funny because you say what lots of people are thinking but don’t have the guts to say. Sometimes I think you’re just plain mean. You have a great stash and take great pictures. I’m not the least bit jealous.

  52. What a Wanker says:

    I’m glad you understand! I really didn’t think you would. Yes, I do believe there are times and places it’s okay, no downright acceptable, in fact even called for to be a bitch and that would be when you see someone being a nasty bitch to someone who did nothing to them or anyone else for that matter. NOT when someone asks a simple innocent question. And yep, I think I have ever right to come to that conclusion. I’m sorry your too blind to see how f’in nasty you acted Meg, but I guess it’s hard to see us “little people” from your high horse.

  53. Shabbychic says:

    I had a really hard time reading your post, Wanker. I corrected it, grammar wise, so it would be easier for everyone else to read. Holy run on sentence and my personal fave “your” when it is supposed to be “you are”. In addition, the improper use of punctuation is scattered throughout. Oh also, I changed your term “little people” as that is a term used for those with Achrondoplasia and I would not want to offend anyone. Never mind though, I am always glad to help. Also, don’t ever enter a debate contest, you will loose. Your logic is rather flawed. But, a class on grammar would be great! Anyway, Here you go.
    “I’m glad you understand. I really didn’t think you would. Yes, I do believe there are times and places when it is okay, no downright acceptable actually, to be a bitch. That would be when you see someone being a nasty bitch to someone who did nothing to them or anyone else for that matter. It would not be when someone asks a simple innocent question. I do indeed think I have every right to come to that conclusion. I’m sorry YOU ARE too blind to see how f’in nasty you acted, Meg. However, I guess it’s hard to see us simpletons from your high horse.”
    Oh and one last thing. I may have been bitchy and rude, but “f’ing nasty”, eh, I wouldn’t go that far.

  54. DSDM2 says:

    Meg, I for one think you were a bitch in that post, HOWEVER, I do think that you are an amazing photog. I do not feel that you have ever been shady to anyone on DS.

    Photography is a LOT more than a good camera and software. They make someone who has talent better. To be able to use the equipment and produce art from it, you have to have skill.

    Just to set the record straight.

  55. Shabbychic says:

    I never said I wasn’t a bitch. There is nothing to defend as far as that. I have no reason to be shady. Thanks for the compliment.

  56. luvmyb says:

    LMAO Meg. Love you 🙂

  57. JustPeachy says:

    I love it! And I do agree with Stacy that very often Meg says what other people don’t have the balls to say. Too many times have I held back only to see Meg post exactly what I was feeling in certain threads.

  58. werd says:

    ugh, I hate it when people knit pick about grammar and spelling as a means to defend themselves. Seriously.

    Anyways, yeah you were a bitch, but I think its funny because I’m a bitch, too. Cheers!

  59. Shabbychic says:

    I didnt defend myself. I said I was a bitch. I had to fix that post. Greater good. Cheers to you too.

  60. Nicki says:

    Um, Shabby?

    I think the word you are looking for is “lose”. “Loose” means something that is not tight, like “loose screw”. This is from your quote in #53, “Also, don’t ever enter a debate contest, you will loose.”

    Good try though! *snickers*

  61. What a Wanker says:

    Meg, if there is anyone in this world who I care how they perceive me due to my grammar, it is absolutely not you. I just didn’t care enough to check my spelling or grammar before hitting the submit button. I didn’t realize that you wouldn’t be able to wrap your little, tiny brain around it if it wasn’t exactly perfect to your standards. Sorry, now I know that you also expect perfection in everyone and you will determine that perfection. Of course, you need not be perfect yourself (LOOSE, YEAH, I’m gonna LOOSE this one for sure). So, not only are you a bitch, but you are nit-picky and a hypocrite. Very interesting, sounds pretty nasty to me!

  62. Gotcha says:

    Meg, take it from someone who really knows how to debate (and write), the correct word would be “lose”. It would behoove you to use proper spelling when correcting another post. Just a thought.

    I have no problems with you in theory, but the reality is much different. The crux of the problem is that you take a “holier than though” attitude while posting on DS. You insinuate on many occasions that you are famous or at least closely involved with those that are famous. Not that I give a shit about fame, but your “is she famous” posts do seem to pop up when the Meg-love train hasn’t come around in some time.

    The fact of the matter is that you appear to be of sufficient means, but the fact also remains that there are many women on DS who are sufficiently funded as well but don’t feel the need to act as if our shit don’t stink. That is all.

  63. Shabbychic says:

    No defense here. You are absolutely correct, it would behoove me. I’m not famous, never said I was. “MY” is she famous posts? I never participated. Closely involved with some that are famous. Yup. The truth be told. Um, what else. The Meg love train. Aw, that’s so sweet. And Wanker, still that class might be good for you. Actually from how it reads, a few might be good. Like a whole bunch of semesters.

  64. luvmyb says:

    LOL Ahhh, the great Tori Spelling thread, where some really smart online sleuths googled Meg and her husband’s names and drew their own (wrong) conclusions. Impressive.

    Oh! And Wanker, I would like to suggest online classes. Convenient, affordable and uber helpful for a person like yourself.

  65. kmr says:

    Wanker, you remind me of Korin (connorsmamawhatever), you have similar bad grammar. For example, WHAM instead of WAHM. bwhaha. That’s my all time fav.

  66. Shabbychic says:

    OMG, kmr, you are a super sleuth. Methinks you are correct yet again.

  67. werd says:

    this feels like high school

  68. InAfixx says:

    This is all incredible pathetic. When someone made me aware of this blog long ago; I’d nearly forgotten about it completely after the first visit until it was brought to my attention that Meg was a topic of interest.

    Frankly; this is all just downright STUPID. The fact is, we live in a world where it’s become an expectation that everyone be peaches and cream at all times. God forbid we ever offend anyone ****dramatic gasp****
    Another fact is that regardless of that widely accepted ideal; we are all cast from different molds my friends, and we don’t all have the same personality. Being a west-coaster myself, having come from a pretty straight-forward no bullshit upbringing, a lot of people give me the bitch label also. But what some consider to be bitchiness, other west-coast natives consider par for the course. Blunt, direct, honest, and opinionated.

    I’m going to side with my eldery spitfire grandma on this one. “It’s a shitty world, kid. Better learn to get tough.” Does this one particular interaction between two total strangers over the internet really need this much heat? I’m glad I have a thich enough skin that I can let, oh-what is that DS word, “snarkiness” run off my back.

    My final interjection is that Meg is driven, successful, extremely talented, a good mother and has one kick-ass stash to showcase. Any jealousy is most definitely understood, but not a justification to attack someone on false bases.

    I’d hang with Meg any day, and it doesn’t have a thing to do with “trying to get something from her stash” either.

  69. Shabbychic says:

    I don’t know who you are, but I would hang with you too. And your grandma.

  70. Bloo♥Skadoo says:

    #34 I have never even seen a single photo by Meg aka Shabbychic so it stands to reason that not everyone posting is jealous of her and her awesome amazing super dooper fan fuckingtastic photography. It could just be that people have read some of her posts (the ones where she sarcastically answers questions she feels are stupid) and find them sort of bitchy. Kind of like this post I am making is a tad bitchy.

  71. JustPeachy says:

    Since when is being a bitch a bad thing?

  72. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    Maybe it’s just that she feels the need to belittle 3/4 of the people she is posting to….She seems to enjoy making people feel like they are idiots.

  73. InAfixx says:

    Again, I am struggling to understand this. I don’t see how someone can feel belittled by someone they don’t know and probably wont ever lay eyes on. Come on! To use a popular dude phrase; “grow a pair”. And I also think that saying she belittles 3/4 of the people she posts to is an extreme exaggeration. I’ve seen several of her posts just today and I can’t say that any one of them is the least bit “bitchy or belittling”.

    Can we all get off this carousel of stupidity and move on to something more meaningful? Live and let live, ladies. Honestly.

  74. forgotmynameagain! says:

    I think she’s a ridiculous bitch. She never has anything nice to say and can’t seem to say anything without attitude. This is not only on the board but during transactions as well. Its like she doesn’t know how to be pleasant, or doesn’t care to be. Either way I have no use for her. I pretty much ignore everything she says. Someone has to be pretty bored, or lonely or damn miserable to be as rude and nasty as she acts.

  75. InAfixx says:

    You know it speaks volumes to me that Meg, the very person being absolutely thrown under a bus in this blog has come here without reservation to discuss the insults being thrown at her. Whereas all her accusers hide behind their Google account names. It’s so easy to spout off vindictive words when you’re shadowed in anonymity.

    All of you that seem so vehemently convinced of your own superior rightness, why don’t you just go ahead and wave your colors? Why not sacrifice yourself on the alter of “truth” and at least show the cards in your hand?

  76. Shabbychic says:

    I am not bored, lonely or miserable. At all. I also think that I am being paid far too much lip service. I am not that interesting. I have posted multiple times today and can say without reservation that I have neither been nasty, nor rained sunshine. Oh well, I guess I rained a little sunshine when I sent 4 pairs of almost new pants to someone who needed them. But, never mind. I dont know who you are 74, but since you have had transactions, plural,with me and find me so unpleasant and have no need for me, then don’t buy anything else from me. I will say this. You might all not like my responses to certain posts, but I have never hid behind a random name and deliberately tore someone down, insulted their business, their lifestyle or someone I may have “thought” to be their spouse. You might think I am a bitch, but at the very least, I speak up for myself and stand behind what I say. So any day, I would rather be a bitch than a coward.

  77. myself says:

    Hey Shabbychic,
    if you’re planning to baSh another persons grammer, perhaps you should check your own? 😉

    It’s “lose” NOT “loose” just a friendly fyi 😀

  78. Shabbychic says:

    Yes, I know, we visited that already in post 63. Thanks though.

  79. Shabbychic says:

    Oh, and 77, its grammar, not grammer. LOL.

  80. myself says:

    touche! lol 😉

  81. blooskadoo says:

    I have the same user name here and on DS I just rarely post there as my LO is PLing and I have no reason to want to buy. I prefer to sell on CL because I run less chance of being scammed. So not hiding just not that involved.

  82. blooskadoo says:

    What I do but I tend to buy on Etxy or HC. 🙂

  83. blooskadoo says:

    ETSY whoops

  84. InAfixx says:

    Meg : “I’d rather be a bitch than a coward.”

    Well said. Me too.

  85. Confused says:

    I’m Confused – who the fuck is Meg? Is she the one who screws over the WAHMs by ordering customs and then giving them all kinds grief because she still has issues measuring an inseam properly and demanding refunds? Because I have heard of a Meg from Diaper Swappers whom a bunch of WAHMs will no longer accept customs from – is this her? And why is she a bitch if her life is so fabulous?

    I don’t think it is that Meg 🙂 And FTR she isn’t always a bitch. Just in this instance 😉

  87. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    I know plenty of people who lead fabulous lives who are, in fact, bitches. Just like I know a lot of people who lead downright shitty lives (financially) who are perfectly nice. Attitudes don’t dictate lifestyle.

  88. Shabbychic says:

    I don’t have any custom problems.

  89. Zooby says:

    Bwahaha…. I came to my own conclusion that Meg was an uber bitch many months ago after seeing the way she has responded to other ladies on ds. But wow, this takes the cake! You’re an even bigger bitch than I thought Meg!

    Food for thought….do you think Meg would get away with the same jerk ass attitude if she DIDN’T flaunt her $$$/Stash/Elusive famous person ties?

  90. Shabbychic says:

    Like I said, you all are paying me far too much lip service. THIS takes the cake? Of all my comments, THIS one takes the cake. I find that kind of amusing.

  91. Shabbychic says:

    And 89, what does that mean “get away” with. As if I am going to change who I am because some people on the internet think I am a bitch. Who, exactly is letting me “get away” with being who I am? I mean seriously. I am doing just fine, thank you. Here, on DS and anywhere else. I would think this has become boring. I mean, how many more veiled people need to swing by and call me a bitch. Who cares at this point. OK, so people think I am a bitch. SO WHAT?

  92. What a Wanker says:

    I just don’t understand the NEED to be a bitch. Why it’s something to be so damned PROUD of on a regular and consistent basis. I just don’t get it. I seriously considered that she may be super lonely also and is just trying to get attention but figured she would just belittle me for even considering that might be the reason. I don’t know why anyone would WANT to act the way Meg acts at times and then to be so damned proud of it is just out there to me. If a ton of people were calling me a bitch on a regular basis over more than one thing, I might want to consider what exactly that means, but Meg is overly proud of her ability to be a consummate bitch. Not sure what is going on there, but something sure is, and it’s pretty whacked out!

    Of course, now, not only is she NOT being a bitch today on DS (I’m assuming this to be true, I haven’t even been on DS today), but she is giving things to people in need and of course making sure she brags about it (see post 76). Meg, those who truly give from their heart have no need to brag about it. Oh and one day of decency doesn’t make you a decent person.

  93. Shabbychic says:

    Wanker, a ton of people calling me a bitch on a regular basis on THE INTERNET is not going to change who I am. Like I said, I am doing more than fine. I don’t NEED to be a bitch. I NEED to continue to be the very successful person that I am. I am very proud of who I am and proud of my business. Just because YOU and people on DS think I am a bitch in no way affects my daily functioning as a person. And, I assure you, it’s not one day of decency. LOL. Not at all.

  94. Shabbychic says:

    And Wanker, one more thing. Are you the wanker? Your username refers to yourself?

  95. luvmyb says:

    Wanker, doopdeedoo or whoever you are and KORIN (Waves!! Hi ya, how ya doin’? Bitter much?) you guys are really just making me feel sort of sorry for you now. On and on and on and on with this crap. What are your intentions? What is the point, really? Please tell me, because this is getting ridiculous.

    Ever heard of the term cyber bullying? That’s what this is, and it isn’t a very “nice” thing to do. You guys are mothers. I would be really, really, really sad if I knew my mom was on some website berating another person. Oh, and embarrassed for her. Embarrassed that she didn’t have anything better to do than to call other women bitches and berate their professionalism and honesty.

    Move along. You guys don’t like Meg. Ok, great. I honestly don’t think she cares, and you shouldn’t either. Why is it so much fun for you to repeat over and over and over and over and over why you don’t like her. You guys are so, so wrong about Meg. Ridiculously off-base and it’s hatefulness and judgements such as yours that breed lots of other horrible stuff.

    Drop this already. Seriously. Let. it. go.

  96. TreeTalker says:

    Meg,
    I have to admit as a lurker on DS your posts and “holier than thou” attitude is irritating to say the least.

    Your posts on this thread echo that same attitude. This isn’t about how “successful” you are. This isn’t about “what” you have. This isn’t about “who” you know. THIS IS ABOUT THE WAY YOU TREAT PEOPLE. I understand it is easy to treat the “nobodies” on a public forum like shit, but is it necessary? Does it somehow make you feel like a better person? I’ve always said that people who tear others down are usually LACKING something in their own personality or life.

  97. What a Wanker says:

    You certainly are getting your panties in a bunch. If it doesn’t bother you, why don’t you leave? I’ve never said one thing about your “business” and couldn’t care less about it. I guess you take pictures of stuff, not sure what and don’t really care and have no opinion, so why care what I have to say if that is all you care about?

    And obviously you do NEED to be a bitch because you are also very successful at that! I guess for you, as long as you’re successful, it doesn’t matter what it actually is you are succeeding at. I mean, you did admit you are a bitch, it’s not just me and others on the internet saying it. You know you are one. So you are successful at that and proud of it. That’s a sad, sad thing to be proud of. Really.

  98. Shabbychic says:

    “Tear” others down? My replies dont “tear” others down. Come on. I have remained civil after being attacked here, but I am the one “tearing” others down. I’m doing great, seriously. I am as honest as they come and if I wasn’t doing great I would say so. It honestly doesn’t matter to me that you think my responses are bitchy. I happen to think that responses scattered with hugs and smileys are ridiculous and full of fluff. I say what I need to and move on. I don’t fart rainbows for anyone IRL or anywhere else. It’s not who I am. But, who I am has gotten me to a great place. So really, I think this is done. You think I am a bitch. I don’t care. Let’s move on. It seems silly to keep revisiting the same word. But, if you NEED to and it makes you feel good, carry on. I can take it.

  99. TreeTalker says:

    I never said that I thought you were a bitch. I simply think you could use a little more tact when talking to people. And no, I don’t think ANYONE should have to respond with smilies and hearts, just some basic respect for fellow mamas would be nice…..

  100. Shabbychic says:

    OK, TreeTalker, I might agree with you. I do sometimes might appear to lack tact. I have respect for fellow mamas, especially ones who CD. Perhaps, my straightforwardness is misconstrued as lack of respect, but I say what I want to and move on. Believe me, if I really want to make it known that I don’t care for someone, it’s a lot more obvious than just short. And, honestly, I find hugs and smileys beyond irritating and stupid, but I don’t haul off on those that use them incessantly. It is who they are and how they care to express themselves. So, I guess I am not all that concerned that some perceive me as a bitch, because I know truly who I am and am comfortable with it.

  101. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    So, when your panties are in a bunch, is that anything like a wedgie? Because I can’t imagine someone wearing panties big enough to where they’d be bunching enough to cause a disturbance. If they do, isn’t that an indication that you might need to go undies shopping? And really, would that cause someone to have an attitude? I don’t get pissy if I get a wedgie, is this different somehow?

    Sorry to hijack, but these are important questions that need to be answered.

  102. TreeTalker says:

    #101 Deep Thoughts….LOL If you find the answer let’s sticky it!

  103. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    #102 I couldn’t agree more. Everyone should be on this quest. Find out about the bunching panties and win a cookie. Of course, the subject being underpants, I’m not so sure you would want to take said treat. It might have been the bunch in the skivvies.

  104. TreeTalker says:

    #103…See, it is just all too complicated. I’ll just stick with a my thong…. Instant Wedgie

  105. kmr says:

    I think ya’ll are just too damned insecure with yourselves that you feel the need to belittle someone else. Aren’t you learning this in high school? I know the counselors teach about it, those who pick on others are insecure with themselves. You are all still in high school, yes?

    I find it interesting that all you “girls” on here can rip her, her business, her lifestyle, to pieces, yet when she defends herself she’s being arrogant?

    Have any of you taken the time to get to know her? Funny that you judge and don’t really even know her, except what you’ve googled, lol.

    Get off your high horses and find someone your own age to pick on. There are lot of other 16 year old girls on myspace. Check it out.

  106. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    #104 You deny the panty challenge, do ye? May the underwear fairy be good to you on your journey to wedgie enlightenment.

    Any other takers?

  107. Zooby says:

    “Like I said, you all are paying me far too much lip service. THIS takes the cake? Of all my comments, THIS one takes the cake. I find that kind of amusing.”

    Yeah, because you are here being bitchy and defensive about people calling you out on being a bitch…lol. Which I’m not really sure why you are so proud of that :headscratch:
    If a bunch of people were agreeing that I had an nasty attitude, I’d probably be taking a little self inventory and wondering if there wasn’t something to this. I have absolutely no problem with people being blunt or a little outspoken, I just don’t see the need to add that extra nastiness to it.

    Oh, and yeah, I do think you ‘get away’ with it. I think you would have been called out on it a looong time ago if you were perceived as a ‘nobody’ with a stash of dingy old prefolds and the same asshat attitude.

  108. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    Lip service….Now that’s a good subject for me to take on…But highly inappropriate. Give me something else.

  109. kmr says:

    i LOVE MEG

  110. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    Awww do I really hafta STFU?

  111. kmr says:

    Well you could either STFU or stuff your wadded panties down your throat. You choose.

  112. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    Hey now, I’m not the panty wad woman. I’m the “wears panties that fit so they can’t get in a wad” woman. See above. I haven’t said one mean thing in here. I’ve just been trying to lighten the mood. I have said nothing against Shabbychic. Don’t intend to, for that matter. So, I guess I won’t STFU or stuff panties down my throat. They’re not wadded, so it does not apply.

  113. blooskadoo says:

    Nice, telling people to shove panty wads down there throat thats very nice. Who is doopdeedoo? Am I doopdeedoo? I kind of like the musical sound that has. Not as good as Behooooooooooooooove has though. ♥ HHHMMMM guess it would behoove me to step back in line and stop spouting off useless nonsense?

  114. blooskadoo says:

    *there should actually be their

  115. MatildasMum says:

    Wow. This degenerated quickly.

  116. Behooooooooooooooove says:

  117. blooskadoo says:

    See but I am ASSuming it was directed at me for some yet to be known reason because it rhymes with my UN. On second thought maybe I just like the ryhme. 🙂

  118. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    It’s okay, Bloo. I’m ASSuming that the degenerate comment was directed towards me and my late night boredom and rambling about panty bunches and wedgies. It’s all in good fun for me. Just amusing myself. I don’t think bad about anyone, I just like to crack jokes.

  119. kmr says:

    well fine then, i suppose you can use your non-wadded panties. Everyone else though, can shove their wads.

  120. mom2kg says:

    Wow. What a bunch of losers. I didn’t realize Meg had such a cult following. Seriously, you people are pathetic. Wah wah, Meg was mean. Wah wah, Meg is a bitch. Wah wah, I’m a coward who can’t post under my real name. This would be mildly amusing if the bitch callers would actually claim their words by posting under a real name. So you don’t like the way she posts. Yes, she can come off a little abrasive at times. She doesn’t fluff her posts with smileys and hugs. She posts very matter of factly. So it offends some of the more sensitive crowd on DS. Big freaking whoop. There are plenty of assholes on DS who deserve entire websites dedicated to their assholeness. Meg, not so much.

    It is also quite pathetic that some of you would choose to try and drag her business through the mud. I can say without a shadow of doubt that Meg is amazingly talented. She could take a picture of a turd with a disposable camera and it would come out better than anything I could do with $10k worth of equipment. I have seen both her professional and personal pictures. She is a gifted artist. I hate to see people take jabs at her work that she is so passionate about just because they want something else to whine about.

  121. DHRocks says:

    Confused…. yes… Meg is the customer who has been tagged by many WAHM’s as a nightmare customer. I’m one who, going against my grain of not turning away any business, was happy to turn her away (inadvertently), around the time her measuring and “pooling” antics became common knowledge.

    As far as the photography thing goes… I have no opinion. I am a crappy photographer myself. However, I have heard that equipment, software, and a little training (self or class) can go a long way.

    And the bitchiness… have only read a few posts here and there. For me personally, I’d say that the internal applause I have for her telling it like it is (when I agree with opinion) is far outweighed by the irritation I feel when I think someone has a “holier than though” complex.

  122. DHRocks says:

    Oops… and my grammar… I’m sure there are more mistakes… but “though” should be “thou” and “when I agree with opition” should be “when I agree with the opinion”

  123. Zooby says:

    Hey momtokg, you’ve got a little something on your nose…yeah, right there on the tip.

  124. blooskadoo says:

    Hi I blooskadoo AKA Bloo♥Skadoo am actually posting using my real UN although I don’t think I have really said all that much about Meg. More so in response to the hoard of Meg fans….hhhmmmm I AM a Meg fan only its the wrong Meg.

    I ♥ the MEG books written by Steve Alten. Which now has me chuckling because the MEG he writes about is a prehistoric kinda sorta Great White Shark. What can I say its late at night and I don’t sleep well. *shrug*

  125. mom2kg says:

    Ahhh…You’re a witty one Zoob.

    I was friends with Meg long before the groupies. At least the DS groupies. Me thinks you are a secret Meg admirer the way you hound her so. Or have you really been holding on to all this rage for months since the first time she pissed you off on DS? Finally found the platform to vent it all out? Did you go search her posts so you’d have something to talk about here? I bet you feel so much better being able to finally get all this off your chest. Good for you!

  126. kmr says:

    #122, I’d like to know which WAHM’s have “tagged” her as a nightmare. And why? because she knows what she wants? god forbid someone actually gets what they pay for. Anarchy!!!

  127. blooskadoo says:

    #127 from what I understood out of that post was that it has happened repeatedly with different WAHM’s that Meg’s measurments are always off. So they make or knit and it never fits right yet it is always the various WAHM’s fault. That is how I took it though.

  128. blooskadoo says:

    So either a ton of WAHMS can’t sew/knit correctly or the one person all have in common can’t measure correctly.

  129. kmr says:

    I have a hard time believing that, have you seen how long she’s been cd’ing and using wool? I’m pretty sure she knows how to measure her child. And most of the stuff I have noticed that doesn’t fit was b/c her child had a growth spurt while waiting. Unless of course we are talking about the craptastic Connorsmama Creation Fleece pants. And that WAHM needs to learn how to take measurements herself.

  130. kmr says:

    #129, I still don’t understand where the info is coming from though. Have a bunch of wahms gotten together and discussed that she is a nightmare? Or is some hillbilly just reading a bunch of FSOT posts of Meg selling items that don’t fit and “ass”uming that she didn’t know how to measure.

  131. DramaBore says:

    I don’t know. I do think Meg comes across as very condescending in many of her posts. Her photos are beautiful, as is her collection of wool. I think she might be a difficult customer to please, because she doesn’t like pooling, thin-legged patterns, or measurements that include the gusset, but she is entitled to be since she is paying for the items. The only WAHM I know that had a problem with her was Korin, and that was a fiasco because the WAHM complained about her on DS where Meg would surely see it.

  132. blooskadoo says:

    Again I am not talking about anything I don’t follow the whole thing all that well (or even at all really) I was just saying what I got from the post about WAHM’s. I am not a WAHM and I have zero clue what WAHM’s may disscuss or not disscuss when it comes to customers.

  133. InAfixx says:

    100+ posts later and the second verse is the same as the first! At this point, all of you incredible vicious harpies are grabbing at straws! I’m absolutely anticipating the next move as something even more petty and ludacris; perhaps what her avatar was last week?
    Need I beat the same dead horse here and bring up, yet again, how positively laughable it is that this idiocy parade is still 99% anonymous?

    What’s amusing is that at the end of the day, you guys will still be finding bullshit to bring up; in hopes of distracting yourselves from more important problems in your own lives.
    Funny that all of you have these ear-deafening problems with Meg….but we haven’t heard about it until now? Someone mentioned “everyone wants to be friends with the popular girl.” I hate to say it, but you’re bullshit is showing.
    If this blog is honest in any facet; it’s been to prove that most would rather jump on the bully bandwagon that go against the grain. One person strikes a chord, and miraculously there’s a whole fucking orchestra joining in.

    Why don’t ya’ll get off your butts and go find a worthy cause to attribute some time to. I’m certain that at this stage in the game; everyone’s points have been rehashed times five. In the words of Limp Bizkit, “it’s all about the he-said, she-said bullshit”.

    The only big whopping BITCH vibe I’m getting is right here.

    Meg’s personality may not be the stuff June Cleaver was made of, but you know something? Get over it. Seriously.

    DS is a big place, mama’s. Lot’s of room for everyone. You don’t have to be her BFF; but attacking her professional skills, personal life and how she spends her hard earned money is callow, contemptible and downright imprudent.

  134. blooskadoo says:

    discuss I mean

  135. blooskadoo says:

    I don’t have a problem with her she can be bitchy all she wants it does not effect my feelers. If someone mentions it I might comment back on it. If friends become rabid over it I might think WHOA that is wild and indulge in a little late night banter with said friends.

    I don’t care that she makes pretty pictures, or has great wool or any of those other things. Material things are just that and why waste my time being jealous over what someone else has. Especially when they have no idea what I do have (because I don’t put it out there I like to keep my private life private for the most part) Why be jealous of someone that I don’t know and most likely will never know or even want to know. seems sort of silly.

    Why can’t someone say I don’t like so and so’s posting style without it being about jealousy. Also pointing out that camera equipment and other tools of the trade to help a photographer does not = attacking skill? (I was not the one that said this I don’t think I have said anything about her photography or her wool stash as I have seen neither, I have also not discussed her purchases because I have no idea what she buy’s. She is just not important in my life I guess) They don’t I might have an eye for pictures but had I not had a teacher to spend three years working with learning all of the tricks (out dated now the world went digital I miss the old ways 🙂 ) of the trade I would not of had the skill to go with my eye. There are many good photographers out there some like Megs work others may have different taste.

    Anyway my point was peole can dislike someones posting style without being jealous of what that person has going on in their lives. The two do not have to be intertwined.

    The only reason i even became all that interested in this whole hoawt mess was that her friends/fans went all rabid foaming at the mouth and that was funny. I would never want my friends to defned me in this method OR at all really. Meg can hold her own she is the grammer police here after all 😉 Gotta watch that though BECAUSE the grammer police ALWAYS never fails to happen make grammer mistakes when they point out others.

  136. blooskadoo says:

    WHOA look at all my typos oh well I miss firefox LOL

  137. InAfixx says:

    Call me old school (dang, I need a FCOL hoodie for this) but that’s what friends are for. To get your back when you need it. If my entire character was on the chopping block (and, let’s be honest, the entirety of Meg’s life is being slapped on the deck) I would certainly appreciate it if people who know me would stand next to me. I don’t find, “hey, sorry Charlie, fight your own battles” to be a particularly snuggly part of a friendship….do you?

    Do I believe there is some obvious jealousy from certain people? You bet your butt I do. I’d venture to bet that some of the people lashing out are the ones that beg, borrow and steal to fund some delicious stash item; only to do it all over again. It’s only human nature to feel pea-green with envy when someone has the livelihood to purchase whatever they want to without pulling spare change from under the cushions.
    Meg’s stash is nirvana personified. Who wouldn’t want all of that beautiful wool?

    And if you want to go around calling those of us who defend Meg her “fans” or perhaps, Meg Elitists, you’d better have a Jim Jones style theory to back it. Fandom and friendship are different boats my friend. Wake up.

  138. JustPeachy says:

    #138 I agree with the last part of the statement. I don’t know Meg all that well so I will not claim to be on the in. What I can say is ya she is a bit snarky but who the hell isn’t on DS? Some just mask it so as not to get flamed. Meg’s been nothing but nice to me and to me thats all that matters.

  139. Shabbychic says:

    There is no WAHM who’s knits I am proud to own that I do not do business with. The measurements thread was directed at FSOT, not WAHMs. And more importantly, the WAHMs who’s knits fill my stash are those who actually KNOW what they are doing. Never had a problem with any of them. God forbid I spend my money and get what I want and not settle, right? I guess that’s why so many pants are sitting on FSOT all pooled up with 15 inch rises, 7 inch thighs and 13 inch inseams. It helps to know what you are doing, and I am always glad to help anyone who doesn’t hide behind user names.

  140. kmwell says:

    Well said Meg. Who cares really. And I am an incessant emoticon user and I KNOW I get on other mamas nerves (probably even yours) and I am not too concerned by that either.

  141. cdmd1023 says:

    Meg- I dont really know you, but I have beenon ds for a year and hae read many of your posts. I really dont give shit what you own, who your help, or what you do for a living, that does not mean a thing to me. You keep saying over and over “im doing fine” what does that mean? I could care less if you are snarky, which i think you were a few times in the pas couple weeks, whether you were trying to be or not, but I dont think being a bitch is anything to be proud of. I think the way you responded to the newbie tuesday thread was a bit bitchy, you could have easiely used different words and still made the OP understand, being a newbie on such a large site is a bi scary. Also, the thread about some wahm going under because of bad feedback, you spoke as if you were the one with all the say, if meg says stop thinking about said wahm, then stop thining about it! Just because you didnt like whatever wahm it was, doesnt mean the op needed to not ask, you didnt need to even respond.
    I persnally have no issue with you, but if so many people think your actig a bit snarky then perhaps they are right. I dont think anyone is jealous of you, you could own 50 pair of crankies and I doubt anyone cares, but a little kindness goes a long way 🙂

  142. cdmd1023 says:

    sorry for the typos, my laptop is basically split in 2 and on its way out.

  143. InAfixx says:

    cdmd1023, you say you don’t know Meg that well, right? Then I really wouldn’t be so quick to tell her she isn’t doling out the kindness.
    Meg is a very nice person. Honestly. I’ve had one of DS’s favorite mamas jump down my throat for not agreeing to a trade, in which she believed she had the better bargaining chip. I’ve also had some of the most “sweet” mamas go a little postal when I haven’t answered a PM in less than 5 minutes flat.

    Appearances can be deceiving.

    Kindness is not defined by words, but by actions.

  144. Shabbychic says:

    Being a newbie on a large site is scary? Are you serious? Having cancer is scary. Loosing a job is scary. Being in a car accident is scary. Being on an internet forum is hardly scary and if you are scared, well then perhaps some reevaluation is needed. As far as me doing fine. Yes, I am fine. I am happy, and my family is healthy and happy. My kids are growing and changing. I think these are the important things. Perhaps I am not the one that needs to look internally.

  145. cdmd1023 says:

    I didnt mean scary like that, I mean when compared to other boards, ds is huge!!!! It can be confusing for a newbie, and when they ask a simple question only to be answered the way you did, I dnt know, I wouldnt feel to welcome.

    and Inafixx-I wasnt saying she isnt kind, clearly she has been very generous with people, I was refering to the words she used in a couple posts.

  146. InAfixx says:

    Well, lucky for that newbie there are at least 15,000 other “non-bitchy” members to talk to, right?

    Psh.

    “100+ posts later and the second verse is the same as the first! At this point, all of you incredible vicious harpies are grabbing at straws!”

    For real? I think the only point being made was that Meg is very blunt and can be bitchy in her responses. That’s it, that’s all. I think it’s being strung along more by all her cronies whining about how everybody else should STFU.

    “Me thinks you are a secret Meg admirer the way you hound her so. Or have you really been holding on to all this rage for months since the first time she pissed you off on DS?”

    Wow, yep…you got me. I should really sign myself up for some anger management classes to control all this pent up RAGE. :rollseyes:

    I pmed Meg, but I will say this here as well.

    Meg, what I said was shitty and I should not have said it. More important then anything, you have every right to say what you say however the hell you want to, just like we do here. I am sorry for jumping on the band wagon and saying hurtful things. I dont think a lot of the posters hee know what it feels like to be on the other end of it, and it hurts! especially when what is said is no always true. So Meg, I am sorry.

  153. Shabbychic says:

    Apology accepted and appreciated. Thank you.

  154. DSDM2 says:

    Peach, ask her if I can post her comment here as a blog entry. I don’t want to without permission.

    Thanks.

    They will never admit they do it though.

  156. cdmd1023 says:

    oh! I want to test it 🙂 anyone want to send me something and we’ll see what they do?

  157. DramaBore says:

    cdmd1023…how about a link to CDN? I’ll send it your way – we’ll see how long it takes before I get slapped!

  158. cdmd1023 says:

    lol, I am about to respond 🙂

  159. DramaBore says:

    Got it! I wonder when I will get my warning, LOL.

  160. cdmd1023 says:

    I have one strike already, lets see if I get in ay trouble.

  161. DramaBore says:

    I’m pretty sure I have a strike or two against me already, too…it depends on what they consider a “strike”. Maybe they let me off easy before?

  162. werd says:

    wow. lovely. so much for “private” messages. gah.

  163. JustPeachy says:

    I emailed her to ask her so I will let you know when I get the ok:)

    I am going to skip ahead..
    #76 made by meg was so true.

    I can’t count the number of times I have read the shittiest comments on here. True, some of them were deserved, but many were not. Quite a few of you bitching about her bitchiness have been pretty freaking harsh yourselves. Except, most of you hide behind fake names.

    I love this blog
    aka sara (just so you cant rag on me lol)

  165. InAfixx says:

    That post about the not-so-private messages was me. I took the initiative to check out the links in the column to the right of this blog and saw the Yahoo Group. Since there was no way for me to start a topic here; I elected to go that route.

    But yes, you may absolutely blog about this. I feel very strongly that the reality of this censorship needs to be told. If for no other reason than to give fair odds to mamas who may possibly be banned from conversations via PM that they believe are confidential.

  166. trolltastic says:

    this is hilarious. oh meg is a bitch but gossiping and carrying on like this for days isn’t?
    good lord.
    #122. it is that line of thinking about professional photography, that gets stupid bored stay at home moms to go out and buy a $2,500 camera and start taking pictures on wrinkled sheets and trying to pass themselves off as photographers.

  167. Dramadiva says:

    It’s no big secret that meg thinks she shits rainbows. Has anyone actually seen a picture of her face?

  168. InAfixx says:

    Dramadiva, we’re onto other things now. Try to keep up.

  169. kmr says:

    #170. I have seen Meg, she’s beautiful and so are the rainbows that she shits.

  170. JustPeachy says:

    Kind of low to rag on someones appearance. We are moms not freaking fashion models.

  171. .bin. says:

    I am curious as to the line “you can say whatever you want about my family, but don’t insult my photography skills” w.t.f.?

    I can see ‘you can say whatever you want about ME” but your family? seriously?

  172. Shabbychic says:

    #174 ENOUGH. STFU. It was over days ago. WTF to you to. Way to be late in the game. Sorry, so sorry. Yeah, me, not my kids. OK? I correct myself. Let it go already. It’s boring. I AM BORING. Move on.

  173. Shabbychic says:

    Wait, that’s a direct quote? I think it was more to the effect that I wasnt going to defend crazy made up stories. But, feel free to correct me.

  174. InAfixx says:

    Yah .bin. you’re tardy to the party, babe. This has been hashed and rehashed.
    You honestly think Meg would “invite” people to insult her family? Dear Lord I hope you aren’t really that stupid.

  175. MatildasMum says:

    Meg is beautiful. Where’s your mug, DramaDiva?

    And really – why does it matter that PMs are being read? Are people really disclosing super personal information through the private message system of a diapering board???? I guess I just don’t see it as this major invasion of privacy since I agreed to be a part of a diapering board and that it happens just about everywhere (or can). There are other things to get panties in a bunch over.

  176. Skye says:

    Wow! If you don’t like what Meg says put her on ignore. The personal attack on Meg and her looks and her photography skills is horrible. I’m sorry Meg that people have sunk that low in their insults. There are so many things in life that are more important than degrading another mama.

  177. InAfixx says:

    Excuse me?! How on earth is having my confidential messages read not something to be upset about? I could be wrong, but I didn’t see that bit of information disclosed in their user agreement, did you?
    I don’t know that half the members on Diaper Swappers would feel comfortable knowing that things said in private are subject to viewing by total strangers. Maybe you only walk weather and wool in your PM’s, but I know that isn’t the case for everyone.

    Overall, the it’s the principal. Not to mention the abundance of other happenstance involved with DS that positively wreaks of censorship. There was an enormous lack of judgment when Lee was elected to take over.

  178. InAfixx says:

    walk should have been talk, sorry. No coffee yet.

  179. Stacey2 says:

    Okay, okay. I seriously lost sleep thinking about this. I was not trying to take stabs at Meg’s photography. I have seen some of her pics that just mesmerize me. The thing is I’m kind of passionate about photography and maybe seeing so many pictures every day has sort of desensitized me to the specialness of photographers. I don’t know, I’m having a hard time putting this into words.

    So, sorry if Meg thought I was saying that without her camera and software there would be nothing special about her pics. I see a lot of pictures on the web that could be so good with the right equipment, but not everybody can afford it. I was fortunate enough to be able to get my own equipment and the difference has been night and day. I don’t even want to waste my time with a camera that is less capable. For me, the camera and equipment made ALL the difference. For years people have told me to submit my work to various agencies, but they simply weren’t good enough. I now earn royalties on some of my pictures.

    My best pictures were a combination of luck, cute kids, and great equipment. So that’s where I form my opinion. I feel awful for joining in on this attack of Meg. It was undeserved and very unlike me.

  180. Stacey2 says:

    oh and….reading private messages? What the hell are they trying to accomplish?

  181. Shabbychic says:

    Listen, I am not saying that a D3 does not make a difference in my or anybody else that owns it’s pictures. If I didn’t, then there would be no market for it. However, the most important things are understanding light, composition, a successful connection with your subject and how to USE your camera. So yes, the digital image with my camera is unsurpassed, but if you have not mastered the other things then even the best camera and editing software cannot make up for it. So, I am confident in my skills and my camera allows me to use those skills to their maximum potential. I hope that explanation is valid. I am passionate about what I do and I will not allow myself to be degraded unsubstantiated.

  182. firemommaof1 says:

    Wow! I didn’t know about this site. I thought it would be neat to see what threads are being deleted on DS. I guess I’m wrong! This is just sad.
    I am not friends with Meg, I don’t know her, I don’t talk to her… but no one deserves to be attacked like this. To go back to the first topic of the newbie thread: yes, she could have worded it differently. It came off rude to someone who was asking a question. Said and done! But to attack on a personal level someone that most of you don’t know is down right mean. Like I said I don’t know her personally but no one should be thrown under the bus like this. Maybe other mama’s are jealous of her stuff. I will admit I’m jealous! She has wonderful taste in wool, her pictures are beautiful (and I can’t for the life of me figure out how to change the lighting on my camera), her children are very cute (mine too lol) but I would never attack someone based on those things! I don’t have fancy things and can’t buy everything I want but I also don’t sit and dislike someone who can. If she has money and knows how to spend it so what? At least shes supporting WAHM’s out there right? and now were attacking her appearance??? What does that have to do with anything???? Maybe if she’s ugly you’ll feel better? Then she really wouldn’t have it all?

    Sorry Meg, you might have come off rude here but you don’t deserve this. No one does. I’m sorry these mama’s are comfortable bashing in a group. If you are all on DS then why have different user names here? If you have something to say to her then let her at least know your name.
    Sad, I thought all DS mama’s would ban together, we all have lots in common and should build friendships…. guess I’m proved wrong.
    Well I’m sure some will have something to say about my post, but I couldn’t sit and read all this with out saying something! and this is the same user name I have on DS ~ My name is Sage, I am not hiding. Sorry to intrupt the bashing…. I’m off to enjoy my children.

    P.S. I didn’t check my spelling or anything so please excuse me if you can lol.

  183. Behooooooooooooooove says:

    Beating a dead horse, anyone? I thought we moved on to a different subject. I’m tired of reading about who’s a bitch to who. Old news, everyone’s bitchy. Now how about those “private” messages?

  184. DSDM2 says:

    #186, not all the threads are like this! Please stick around and read more! I’ll have a post tomorrow 🙂

  185. itsraininghere says:

    i, for one, use a different name here so that i’m not banned on ds. it’s pretty clear that if you are active on here and it’s known who you are, you get banned from ds. i have nothing to hide.

    in other news, rock on for exposing the truth about those so-called private messages. i find it disturbingly paranoid.

  186. JustPeachy says:

    #189 that is not true. I know of several mamas on here who use something similar to their usernames and they are not banned. I do the same and I am not banned either. And FWIW the mamas who were banned were banned over stuff that happened on DS not anywhere else (as far as I know).

  187. InAfixx says:

    Supposedly there have been mamas banned for actions on other boards. Which doesn’t really surprise me in light of all the information being devulged of late.

  188. itsraininghere says:

    #190 Yes, but even you yourself were banned for something silly. They can’t directly say that you were banned for being on here, but it’s a bit of a coincidence to me that so many mamas that voice their opinions on here are banned/watched there.

  189. DSDM2 says:

    I’m going to search to find it, but I do believe that moms got temp bans at least from posting here a while back.

  190. JustPeachy says:

    #192 yes I was but it was something I did on DS. I didn’t come on her after whoever it was that banned me told me to change my avi or whatnot. Instead of saying anything and do YAGE I just changed my custom user title. Yes it was stupid and yes I knew it would get me banned. But it was something I chose to do on DS.
    And if you look back a few months ago my ban was supposed to be a year long ban. I talked loads of trash about Lee and his stupid lil regime and yet they shortened my ban. Im not sticking up for DS in anyway shape or form but this is just my experience that hiding behind a name is not going to protect you. Even if it could we all know there are plenty of mamas on here who can figure it out quite easily (which is kind of scary LOL).

  191. JustPeachy says:

    Really DSDM2? As I said before sometimes my head is stuck in the sand so if I am mistaken then by all means correct me 🙂

  192. DSDM2 says:

    I swear there was talk about it, but when I went to look, there were over 1000 comments to read with the term banned, lol. I gave up for the evening.

    I do know people were banned for being bgs, and no other reason.
