No. What’s there to be bullied about? Did you have or do something potentially offensive during you wedding?

@alishaloo:  I’ve noticed that both on this site and on the knot. I don’t really understand why people are so rude online, but it ruins the whole experience and the idea of a community. 

I understand everyone isn’t going to share my opinion, but I think there’s a lot more bashing and jealousy that goes on that’s really just unneccesary

How did you get “bullied?” Also, how many different places online did you post your pictures and/or video? I can only imagine being bullied if I posted stuff everywhere.

@alishaloo:  There was an interesting thread that I remember commenting on from a few weeks back on WB and “bullying” (I put the word in quotes because there was a lot of debate about the use of the word…):

Anyways, I’m sorry to hear that you were getting nasty PMs and that you felt that people being so judgemental – I only read part of the thread, so I’m not sure how nasty it got…but at the end of the day, just remember it was YOUR day and it should have been all about what YOU guys wanted. BTW – I watched the video and thought it was super cute 🙂

I have! I had one user in particular send me nasty PMs accusing me of being a liar. What a sweet lady, right?

I haven’t had a wedding, and am only just in the very beginning stages of looking to have one (or an elopement.. or.. something). However, I have a video on youtube that has been up for a couple years that I have gotten a LOT of nasty comments on – specifically about my teeth and how crooked they are (“ew, your parents must hate you” “wow you must be really poor, how did you afford _thing video was about_” “you should never make another video” “People are probably insanely disgusted when you talk IRL” etc etc). I mean, I deleted a lot of them because these people were downright horribly nasty to me. I spent a lot of nights crying when they started coming in. I never EVER thought it would get as many views as it did, I originally made it for a friend (it’s a tutorial for hair). I STILL get nasty comments, years later, but can just brush them off now. I don’t know what it is about being behind a computer screen that makes people feel like they can just be as nasty as possible, but I really feel for you.

 

I said this in your other thread, but I LOVED your video. I love how things were so unique. I hope you were able to get over the mean comments, because really, your wedding looked like it was a blast!

@alishaloo:  That’s so weird, well don’t let them get to you. There are always going to be haters!

@alishaloo:  I recently posted a question on the boards that I talked crap about bridesmaid drama and how I dont understand why people put up with it and someone messaged me on here and told me that I was “the sickest, most horrible, worst friend ever. and they cant believe I still have people that actually want to be close to be in addition to a man who would want to marry me.” I also posted my dress on the boards on theknot I think and got called “a cow that needs to lose weight”. Also, I just posted a question asking about my timeline that had the logistics of my bar (in which my wedding party has a full open bar and the guests dont) which are still in the works and someone messaged me and said “You should be lucky someone is even willing to marry someone so selfish. I would not come to your wedding if I was your sister. Have fun losing everyone close to you.”

First of all….WHAT? second of all…How do people find it okay to talk to someone with such disrespect?
