It was very nice of you to post this to try and keep this issue out in the open. I know there will be some arguments blowing this thread up in like 5 seconds, so I just want to let you know that your efforts are apprieciated. You didn’t have to post anything at all. 🙂

Mr. Bee, I don’t envy your position. I once watched a spin-off mothering board implode because once they ran out of things to snark at, they turned on one another. It was brilliant! Oh, side track…

Keep up the good work!

I have been following WeddingBee every day since I joined in October and I must say it got kinda crazy there for a bit but I never stopped visiting the Bee 🙂 I personally don’t think you owed anyone an explanation but that is just my opinion, although seeing everything out there is mind boggling. Thank you for everything you and the other admins do to keep the Bee a wonderful place for Brides-to-be and Brides-that-were!

Your hard work is appreciated, … The banned snarky people really need to get social lives in the real world.

Oh wow, I had no idea this sort of thing was even going on! I haven’t been around WB for about a month so I’m sure I missed a lot. Thank you so much for all you’ve done and all you’re doing.

jebus, those snarky ladies are way meaner than i thought!! I’ve kept 100% out of this discussion, but that screenshot shocked me.  I still am weary about people being banned left right and centre, but the ladies that had that particular discussion are whats wrong with girls in a nutshell.  For whatever reason the compulsion to cut each other down is too strong.

Thanks for taking the time to deal with all this, Mr.Bee and the SuperModSquad! It’s nice to be able to browse the bee and not have to wade through the troll posts.

While reading this post I felt a pang of anxiety. We don’t know who is on the other end of a screen name so when going to bee meet up’s be safe ladies. I know these girls didn’t mean any physical harm, but this is a great tool for real predators.

I don’t get it. :S Obviously I can only read what I see here, I’ve never seen the “snarky” site and I know little of what goes on behind the scenes here at WB.

With that in mind, this is my currently thinking: That particular thread about the new stone – I saw nothing wrong with it. Everyone was nice, there was no gotcha! Or snarkyness. It is only when you know background that it doesn’t seem so nice. But the majority of WB wouldn’t see that background. So it doesn’t look or feel like a troll to me. It feels like normal weddingbee. Ignorance is bliss you know? It’s not a troll post unless you know the background.

I also don’t see the meet up thing as anything scary. Just because someone makes fun of someone else, doesn’t mean that they want harm to come to them. Have you (and this is a general you) never gossiped about people you know yet continued to hang out with them and be friendly? Why was organising a meet up immediately seen as something malicious? Unless there were explicit plans on the other sight to physically harm WB members, then I don’t understand the problem at all. These double members seem to be able to be perfectly civil whilst on their main accounts, so it stands to reason that they would act this way in public also.

Again, I don’t know all the information, I just feel like the evidence you have provided is…”meh”..nothing that makes me completely agree with the action taken.

I do thank you for providing the info, sometimes I feel like so much goes on behind closed doors on WB that I mustn’t be one of the cool kids who knows about it.

All I know is that WB suddenly feels quite empty. Those I have become used to seeing post and respected because of how they conducted themselves and how long they had been around, are now gone. It’s sad.:(

Note: I wrote this response because this is (as I understand it) a thread for clarification and feedback.

Thanks Mr.Bee, you didn’t have to, but much appreciation for the work that went into it. Get better, and hopefully you can do a little relaxing without worrying about the drama.
