Much as Tearfree understands your privacy worries, she would like to encourage you to post your thoughts so that all our readers can benefit from your wisdom and insights. Tearfree is completely committed to confidentiality unless you physically threaten her or her family. Anonymous comment has a long and honourable history and, here at Reject the Koolaid, we are carrying on a proud tradition. Granny can attest to our complete commitment to keeping things confidential.
In the past, some critics have dissed our commenters because they don’t have their own blogs, but Tearfree sees that as an advantage rather than a disadvantage.

Why do you think it’s always such a sycophantic chorus of harmony at all those Mummy blogs? Because everyone actually agrees with each other?

Can you please do more synchronized swimming blogging?
