Why I am really starting to hate shopping groups

I joined this yahoo shopping group at the request of an online friend. It essentially was supposed to boost sales for us all. Despite my husbands pleas to drop out, I stayed due to a loyalty of these online acquaintances. As life happens, my friend had several life crisis at hand and could not manage the group. Before she had to give up the group, she allowed two new consultants in. These two new consultants have done nothing but complain about the group since day 1. Then one of these new consultants decides to ask if we are going to stay and asks for suggestions. When I write to the group and state that I do intend on leaving, her and her friend belittle me, and tell me how unfair I am to leave. Really? It is my decision, and this is the very reason why I don't like these kinds of groups. I want to move my businesses ahead, not bicker with other consultants on whether or not I am being fair. I don't need to be belittled in a yahoo group. I don't want to be in a group of bickering consultants, in my opinion, that is not a POSITIVE force in my life. I love interacting with people, POSITIVELY. Constant complaining about how things are run, is not a positive force, and to be honest, I don't want any part of that.
As humans, it is our nature, and as women, to criticize ...sometimes...but constantly.
I was the very first consultant for which people were to buy from. I sat patiently waiting for my next turn, knowing full well, it may never come. Yet I never said a word. That is called profesionalism. It is to be expected. It is where I want to take myself and my businesses. It is where I want my friends to be.

Thanks for reading

I totally understand what you're saying. I'm in two shopping groups right now and one of them i haven't had very much luck in with people sticking with their obligation of buying. The reason i stay is to meet others and maybe make some new friends and recruits.
