Is there something in the thread that’s bothering you?  I was pleased to see many people with many different opinions participating in a civil and thoughtful manner. I’m proud of our hive members and their ability to respectfully hold different views.

If there is a post that is concerning you, you can always flag it.

If you don’t want to post on the thread or don’t like the content, then you could ignore it, and just choose not to read it. Nothing on there has turned into nastiness or name-calling, I don’t think.

I think it was a very interesting post. other peoples’ opinions help me formulate my own and/or understand the arguments out there for/against it. Needles to say, stuff like this affects all of us, and it’s important for us to take notice that there are some bigger issues out there beyond our wedding!

Sometimes it is difficult for me to understand how legislation affects others who, say, aren’t lucky enough to have great healthcare like me. I LOVE having everyone’s perspectives.

It’s an eye opener and I think everyone posted very appropriately.

Chirico- will you flag the posts that you found offensive so that a moderator can look at them?

I didn’t think it was so bad….that being said, there are a lot of not-wedding-related posts on here.

There are a ton of non-wedding related posts and topics on here. There is a whole section dedicated to it. I think the UHC thread was very interesting and for the most part, very civil and tame. It could have gone a totally different way. If it makes you uncomfortable to read it, maybe you could skip it. That’s my favorite thing about WB, you don’t have to read anything you aren’t interested in. I don’t have to read about rings if I don’t want to or money, since I’m not one to stick to a budget. 🙂 But, if you think some of the rules of WeddingBee are being broken, please flag the posts so that a moderator can check them out.

I also agree, that it was posted in the Lounge, which is specifically for non wedding related posts.  Right where it should be.  I didn’t find it offensive.  I actually thought it was very eye opening to see some of the different bee’s opinions and feelings on the matter, and I don’t think it got out of hand. But if something seems to have crossed the line, you should definitely flag it for the moderator to look at.  That’s what the flag feature is for.

One of the things I like most about Wedding Bee is we are more than just bride robots, we are people too. It is nice to have a community of smart women, who can discuss political issues AND know how important bouquets are!

I think there’s nothing wrong with a healthy debate as long as people keep it clean!

I just choose not to discuss things I don’t feel comfortable with. I highly doubt what I say on weddingbee about healthcare will change someone else’s already formulated perspective. Plus, I don’t know what I’m talking about anyway lol.

I guess what I’m saying is… if you don’t want to participate on a conversation, then just don’t open that thread.

Although you could call that not wedding related, and much of that discussion is regarding things changing (or not) through the government, deciding about health insurance is very topical to people who come to this board planning a marriage. Will you carry your spouse? Will it be the other way around? Do you have that option? What will it cost — and who has a better plan? You have new options due to your “life event.”
