I write a wedding blog and released a ‘real wedding’ article today, and within about 3 hours of it being live, some horrible person had written horrendous things about the couple in the comments section!
Luckily all comments submitted have to come through me to be approved so the couple haven’t seen them, but it made me feel terrible for them!

@Laurengrapes: That’s awful. I don’t understand why people have to be like that. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

@Laurengrapes: people think they can hide behind the ‘veil’ of the internet and say things that they wouldn’t have the balls to do so in real life. Internet bullying is just ridiculous, I’m glad you screen the comments!

I feel like it would be great to take that comment and re-write it “for moderation” to say “Beautiful wedding! Love the (something they complained about)” and then submit it hahaha
Not like they’d ever check the comment to see that their hateful words posted anyway.

@CakeyP: Lol love this idea!! If only it worked that way for everything on the internet.
I don’t understand the purpose of hate posts. Go live/critique your own life. Clearly it needs some work if other peoples’ happiness makes you that angry!

Yes a lot of people are horrible but most are not 🙂
I used to always get very upset about the terrible things people say, now I just pity them. Imagine how small their lives are, how sad it is when a person needs to put down others to feel good about themselves…

There are plenty if weddings that aren’t to my taste, but I’d never say it to them! But these comments were directed completely at the couple themselves and their family members and were just offensive and nasty!
I dont know why anyone would take the time to leave the comment, even if it was what they were thinking in their head!

@Laurengrapes: I’m glad you moderate and approve comments. There was a thread recently about a same-sex union and some nasty remarks were made that the couple actually saw.
Didn’t everyone’s mama teach them if they didn’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all?

Seriously, people can be so awful/horrible. I feel like, if it doesn’t affect you, why say anything mean at all?? To each their own! As long as the people whose wedding it is are happy with everything, that’s all that matters!

@DaneLady: I saw that thread! But I never thought I’d be in that position! Part and parcel of writing something the whole world can see! 🙁

That’s so sad! People can be so awful! I agree with @CakeyP: about moderating the comment to say how lovely they think everything is, and posting that!

@Laurengrapes: What makes people happy about saying that someone looks trashy? or their dress is ugly? or their mom is fat? How on earth does that make you a happy person?
Glad you moderate, I would probably burst into tears if I saw something so hateful posted about me and my wedding.

@ImperialRed: I would, but I’d probably get in trouble with the Bee for ‘promoting’ my blog!
Theyre such a nice couple so it’s just sad that someone would say anything bad about them! So glad I moderate every comment though now!!

@thenewmrsmax: Thats the thing though – what they said wasn’t anything remotely wedding related, it was highly personal and offensive about the couple rhemselves.
