Once again, for those who are still unaware:

If you apply for membership to badparents and you are a member of parent_drama or other parenting community snarkfests, you will be automatically rejected. If you continue to spam my email with applications, you will be banned.

Thanks, and have a good day!

Just Wanted To Put My Bid In

I'm sorry you are having so much trouble with snarking. I just found this community and noticed that I have a few friends here. After the day I had today this would have been just the place I needed to talk about it.

Anyway when you open your membership again I would like to be considered:

I have three children 14,3,2 Two boys and one girl, my youngest and she drives me crazy!

I belong to the following parent communities, but i have never encountered snarkiness here.

geekparents, alternparents, and big_kids


I hope these don't fall under you bad communities lists. Thank you for reading. ^-^

I wasn't sure if that section was blocked right now since membership was closed. I put it is just now. ^-^

It's not age, it is the lack of anything regarding parent or child-involvement in your profile. Please re-apply if you're still interested, I will accept.

hi, just curious as to why my membership was declined. if it's because of membership to a particular community, just let me know which. i dont post or comment in the ones that you might deem suspect in any case, and dont mind taking them off if it means i can be let in here. :-)

I rejected your membership due to the multiple _drama communities you're in, they all seem to feed one another, and we are pretty careful.

namely prego and sf? i honestly just watch them and rarely comment if at all (like on pic posts in the latter for example). i've never posted to either and never will cause i really dont snark. would me unjoining there make me eligible here?

i respect you guys being careful, i've been the victim of snark in other places and i definitely support trying to weed it out wherever possible.

best :-)

Yeah, if you want to leave those communities and re-apply in a week or so that's cool.

I can't add you immediately, that's bitten us a few times. :)

how do we tell if we're rejected? I just applied. Pretty sure you're my kinda people, based on the few posts that are public.

Just did a membership request. My journal does not have anything about children in it, at least publicly, because I'm pregnant and I'm trying not to tell certain exes or some people at work. We are 23 weeks along and neither of us has *any* experience with children. We need all the help we can get and the closer we get to the Due Date the more scared we get. Please?

I applied for membership awhile ago and was rejected. I couldn't figure out why until I realized I was still technically a member of prego_drama. I have left/removed all potentially offensive communities...can I reapply?

I just applied for membership as the other parenting communities don't seem to be a good fit for me. I'm not a fan of making fun of first time parenting questions or people with a holier than thou air, which is what a lot of the other communities seem to be full of.

I am a member of sfd and if I am rejected because of that I do understand. I have a number of friends in that community and while straight up snark isn't my specialty, I do enjoy the conversations on various -isms that pop up. This might be lawl-worthy to some, but I've actually learned quite a bit from some of the arguments/discussions on other points of view that may not have otherwise crossed my path in sfd. Mostly I'm a lurker, I've never posted myself, and I'm in other "Safe Space" communities that have a "No Snark Members Allowed" rule (namely stuck_with_them) without having any problems or leaking posts. Personally I don't really understand the motivation behind trolling, just because it's the internet doesn't mean that the people on the other side of their screens do not have feelings and I've been harassed online - it blows.

Reading over the comments in some of the public posts I saw comments that y'all have been burned before by people saying something similar, so again, if my request is rejected I understand and will not spam. Promise. Figured I'd plead my case and give it a shot. Hopefully you'll understand why I don't want to leave a community that I enjoy for one that I've yet to experience.

Thanks in advance for reading this. =)

Just apped. I'm pretty sure I've not done anything wrong - I've had this journal for all of about half an hour :) But it's because I've had no internet for the last three years, and that's all explained in my first entry, along with a little intro to myself and my family. I'd really like to join, if that's okay, and I promise on my honor never to snark anyone :)

If I'm rejected for my journal being brand new, I'll be sad, but I'll understand. I really just haven't been on the internet.

-Lucy
