I agree with you munchkin, there is definitely a mentality here to gang up on certain posters. Just look at the way the OP is being treated with her post. Quite a few comments, rather catty in nature, getting in one last swipe with the claws.
Myradella3 - I got the impression that the OP, like so many others here, myself included, have very busy lives. Many of us can not spend a big chunk of time on a daily basis hanging out on Curl Talk debating issues.
I have a husband, kids, and a household to run with all the everyday things that entails. I spend some time in the morning scanning threads, posting on occasion, and getting on with my day. I can't help that others will interpret my style of posting as someone who does not wish to get into a lengthy debate or is avoiding anything. I just have different priorities that do take precedence over posting on a hair forum.
I prefer it that way.
