"No, your new baby has nothing to do with your old obligations, good luck."

Instead, people had to pile on and make assumptions about how soon this guy got involved with his girlfriend after separation (which was apparently years after), and lecture him on how he shouldn't have gotten his girlfriend pregnant in the first place. The lectures were almost hilarious in that they assumed he was an idiot for getting her pregnant by accident, or an idiot for doing it deliberately. Like I said earlier, sometimes things happen. This poor fellow was just trying to figure out what his options are, possibly while coping with the concept of starting over as a parent, and a bunch of people flat-out just shit on him.

Seriously, guys, we can do better.
I'm with Serene. A "like button" is needed.

You can click on the little medal icon to the top right to increase (or decrease) the poster's reputation if you see a post you like (or dislike). It sends a notification and optional message to their User CP. It's the next best thing. It shows up as the green (or red) squares in our info at the top of every post.

Yes, and for the record you can't increase your reputation by clicking on the medal icon for your own posts...lol
