Meh, everything has its haters.It’s kind of not cool to post usernames and the such, but sadly that is the cost of posting on such a popular site.

But, it has been said that it is better to be talked about badly rather than not at all….

The writer of that article likes themselves a lot.

@ImagineDragon24:  I agree with PP. Although it’s not the best publicity, think of all the hits WB got just from that article (in July, BTW). I don’t know what kind of traffic they get to the site as I have never heard of it before right now, but I feel we may get some great new people just for clicking on a link in an article that seems to be bashing anyone and everyone.

Think about it this way: she could be a member of another wedding site that is more than open to snarky comments the way WB tries to shy away from it. We also are very open to posts and try to help our fellow Bees in the best ways possible. Whether or not it is wedding related has nothing to do with if we’ll respond to it or not. That is one of the reasons we have so many different boards!

I was bored after 2 paragraphs and skipped to the end, where the WB mention is. Hey, who cares what the haters say. The point is WB is a safe place to ask the questions you’re too scared to ask in real life.

@paula1248:  I had to do the same! I think it was rude to  include usernames in the article. I really didn’t see the need for that whole paragraph about the Bee? Though, a lot more people will be able to enjoy it now 🙂

@ImagineDragon24:  well theres a lot of good content here for that. She could have chose way better posts to make her argument though.

As Grantland writes to a primarily male demographic, her bit about WeddingBee is in line with how many men would feel about what goes on here.

No big deal.

@wifey2be:  I love GOMI (though the WB thread is pretty boring; they mostly talk about the bloggers, who I don’t read), but Snarky Chickens has a thread about me (albeit an old one)! Apparently I like to give out “incorrect” information. LOL sure, okay.

Oh give me a break – what a snide article.

What would she rather have us do?  Discuss Russian lit and post-modern themes in French films?  Give me a break.  Why does she even care?  It’s not like she’s saving the world with her THUMPING BORE of an article.

Loser.
