An Australian first-time mother had been attacked by an anonymous letter because of her regular posts on Facebook.
33-years old Jade Ruthven received an anonymous angry letter upon reading which she found herself in a shock. The letter is written in the slightly angry tone and some advice sound very rude. “We are all SO OVER your running commentary of your life and every single thing Addy does… She crawls off the mat – we DON’T care… She’s six month old – BIG DEAL!!!…” – written in the letter. The “friend” in the letter is pressing on Jade to stop posting her child’s life events. Mrs Ruthven and her husband decided not to give up and delete the Facebook account, but to publish it by passing the letter to the local comedian who spread it over the internet and thus, the event became popular.
“Firstly I was shocked and thought that this was some kind of a joke. I have reread it about four times. I was angry and couldn’t believe that some of the people that I used to call friends were so cruel and sneaky enough not even to sign the letter” – she said in the interview to the local media.
Having found out about this situation, Kerri Sackville, the commentator on the popular Essential Baby website said that a lot of Facebook posts could be boring and tedious, but Facebook has a special option for such occasions that allows to turn off the news stream. She also added that “You’re not a bad person if you’re posting a lot of child photos”.
