Yeah. Also, I’m a slow typist and when I try to answer sometimes, by the time I post it, there are 2-3 other bees that have posted the same thing, in the few minutes it takes me to type. Oh well …

lookingforadvice77:  Usually I can tell just by looking at the previous responses, that enough people have already piled on the the OP, so I just save my time and don’t add to the mob.

I can’t recall a single instance of a thread being closed with only a few responses.

If you feel that your contribution would be valuable to the OP, you can always send them a PM.

if very other thread you post on gets closed before you can post… Something makes me think you’re the sort of person who loves to be around drama. There are hundreds of open posts on here, feel free to pick a different one!

I definitely find that frustrating! It can also be annoying when you’re engaged with another poster and the OP closes or deletes the thread.

lookingforadvice77:  One thing I learned to do on the old site (because WeddingBee has more glitches than any other site in which I participate, and the old site was always losing responses) was to copy my responses before I hit submit.

Know what else is frustrating? When you ask a seemingly innocent question and everyone piles on and says “you’re wrong” without stopping to read any of the updates from the OP. I have seen posts like this where the OP admits that they may be in the wrong or they add details that were originally left out and posters essentially just repeat what previous posters said. I think the option to close a thread comes in very handy in those situations.

I also agree with babeba:, if so many threads you are replying too are closing than I’m guessing you’re seeking out the more dramatic threads.

MrsBeck:  To be fair, it’s not uncommon for a seemingly undramatic topic to get very heated (or alternativey, a post that seems like it will get out of hand but everyone somehow is pretty calm and respectful, lol). Just the other day I went to reply to a post that was so innocuous, I don’t even remember what it was, but the OP had deleted it between writing the reply and clicking “add comment”…I guess she had second thoughts.

lookingforadvice77:  I got frustrated yesterday when I saw that someone replied to a post of mine- on a thread that is now closed- that was so off-base….and I wasn’t able to respond- because the thread was closed.  Grmphhhhhhhh

babeba:  not every thread is closed because of drama. Sure, more often than not. But a lot of threads are closed because the OP got an answer and didn’t feel the need for people to keep commenting…

julies1949:  That’s a genius idea. I don’t know why I never thought of that. Actually the thought crossed my mind to copy something at one point, but I’ve never actually done it before.

ask frustrating as it is, i respect peoples choice to close a thread. 

Before we couldn’t close any thread ourselves. And we bitched and moaned to get the option to close threads we didn’t want anymore. So i’m not about to complain about it.
