Nope. It isn’t the coolest thing they could do, but oh well…

And FTR, the group isn’t *that* well known.

What do you think….

about a person that takes a name from a well known cd group and piggybacks off of it to make her own store with the SAME NAME?!?! and has the nerve to ask for help on making the cds and promoting in said group?!?! dont these people realize that not everyone can just BE a wahm making diapers you have to test and have some skill to start with?!

    Actually, Id be pissed. If I had a yahoo group called ABC Diaper supplies, and someone from the group opened an online store called ABC Diaper Supplies, I would have a problem with that.
    It doesnt matter how big the group was.. its a principal thing. Its just plain rude.

  2. not tellin says:

    i think it depends on the name… for example, i know theres a yahoo group called like “comfy creations” or something, and yeah, its not cool to take the name, but it didnt exactly take a rocket scientist to come up with it. Is it cool? No, its not, but not something to be so pissed off about. Like others said, if she isnt any good, she wont last.

    and what group is it? inquiring minds want to know 😀

  3. naturalmamadot says:

    copied my posts from the last thread

    I used to be one of the original owners for the group and since Ive left its just gone to hell in a handbasket. I left because I couldn’t stand most of the members anymore and it turned into a follow the leader/popularity contest which is NOT what I or the other owner ever wanted for it.

    The group is cuties with cloth booties on cafemom and this is the hyena cart

    I can’t see why it would be a big deal if the group doesn’t sell anything. If it was a yahoo group that ran co-ops or something I can see the irritation because bad business from the copycat could reflect negatively on the group. But they don’t sell anything, so what’s the problem?

  5. MatildasMum says:

    I wouldn’t say the group is a “well known” group, either.

  6. mksmommy says:

    Ok not DS related but I saw a group is planning on doing a mutts co-op. Prepare for the onslaught of pissed off mamas in about 3-5 months.

  7. Aprile says:

    I would have to agree that the group is not that well-known. In fact it is a completely private group all together. But she started the HC after we were discussing opening a HC co-op for the WAHM’s in the group called CWCB. The mom that used the name is just doing it to get her name out there. i really dont care either, but i DO think she should make her OWN name for herself instead of ripping off everyone else’s ideas.

    ANd FTR Dot, you are no longer part of the group bcs you stopped participating and the ACTUAL original owner removed you for lack of participation. Brandye was SO HAPPY with the way the group was going that she handed it over to ME. Perhaps if you had taken more interest in the members you could have been our great leader and ran the group how you see fit.

  8. yikes says:

    hahaha this is gonna be gooooood!

  9. twatwaffles & cuntcakes says:

    ripping off someone’s name is unoriginal and shady. word gets around FAST in the CD community and the mama that opened the HC store should know better. shame on her.

  10. liljoeysmom says:

    yawn

  11. yikes says:

    This isn’t really drama, but it’s driving me insane. Every time someone offers good advice, the lady keeps coming back and saying how much she already loves her current system:

  12. InAfixx says:

    Wait, let me make sure I’m getting this right. So, there is a CD group (not a store, just a group of people) with the board name “Cuties with Cloth Booties”.
    There is also an HC store, that sells merchadise and is NOT a convo board, called “Cuties with Cloth Booties”?

    Call me crazy, but I really don’t understand why the bitter anger about this. It’s not two WAHM’s with the same name and same product. Two totally different areas of interest.

    MOO

  13. o4eduk8ed says:

    meh

  14. not just another mama says:

    I think its just tacky – I mean… the name isn’t copy written.. So its fair game.. but still tacky, none the less.

  15. werd says:

    isn’t there a cafemom group by that name too? wasn’t it part of the drama with that Ren lady selling GMs? Why aren’t they getting yelled at?

  16. cdmd1023 says:

    the new ads on ds are enough to make me not go back.

  17. cdmd1023 says:

    ok, im an idiot, there are no new ads, I just wasnt signed in.

  18. twatwaffles & cuntcakes says:

    #16 – the cm group that had the ren drama IS the same group that the wahm stole the name from.

  19. werd says:

    ohhhhh I see! LOL

  20. theinvisible says:

    Could I possibly get a recap of said Ren drama? Must have been before my time.

  21. alison says:

    LOL #12.

    She must have a PR background… Way to stay on message…

  22. mksmommy says:

    I hate when people nitpick about how much you knock off a used diaper price. The only time I nitpick is if its the same as new or if its very obviously overpriced for the condition.

  23. Sam says:

    I think it’s pretty tacky too, but not worth creating drama over.

  24. not just another mama says:

    I just read that whole thread + all the comments, wow.. I cannot believe I missed it – sorta glad I did.

    That Kitty broad seems like a complete idiot. She bitched about DS mama’s not liking her little CM scammer – now she is bitching & moaning on DS?

    Whatttttttttttttttteverrrr.

  25. DSDM2 says:

    Is it any different than a blog using the name of a popular diapering group/site in the title?

  26. not just another mama says:

    I think this mama is just upset its messing up her little congo idea.. but the name, IMO.. is not that great..

  27. theinvisible says:

    #24 Thank you. How could I have forgotten that insanity?

  28. youknowit says:

    http://hyenacart.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=106218
    SO that was super bitchy for someone to do.
    Wait, it was Meg.
    And yes, she rocks blah blah blah
    But that was tasteless.

  29. AshleyB says:

    #30, the link to the listing was taken down 😦 Do you still have it?!

  30. DSDM2 says:

    SC. came to the thread, they agreed to pull the listing and came to a conclusion.

  31. mksmommy says:

    Wait what happened? Was it because Meg relisted her yarn with the original buyers name in the listing?

  32. DramaBore says:

    #30 – Hahaha, that’s too funny!

    I’m guessing it’s for the yarn thing. Boo for non-payers! I have an issue with Spots’ corner though, because it is a PITA to get a hold of sellers to ask questions. I am in Canada, and so I pretty much have to e-mail everybody to ask about shipping. I don’t think a single person has responded. I almost think it would be better to hit the button first and then sort it out…

  33. not just another mama says:

    Wow.. she re-listed with the non payers name on there? Thats freaking rude.. Non payers suck ass, but leave the feedback – that tells it all.

  34. eeek says:

    OK, non-payers suck but that’s a super-bitchy way to handle that situation. There is no way for us to know what happened to the buyer, no way for us to know WTF happened between buyer & seller, nothing. There are feedback spots for that – people can respond and it’s fair without being slanderous. I don’t know or care if shabby was in the right here, that’s overdrive bitchosity.
