@mrbee: Thanks for the update although I still don’t understand why “meh” as a response is trolling close the the line. It means”indifference- the written equivalent of a shoulder shrug”.

How is that trolling close to the line?

Most times I just don’t respond if someone is asking for opinions and I don’t like the item, idea or suggestion. It’s not worth the drama that ensues when you express a negative opinion(even in a nice way).

 The downside of this is that bees are not getting a balance of responses .

@julies1949: Like Mr. Bee mentioned, that user was one of the biggest trolls we had so the “meh” comment was just one of the few of her comments that didn’t actually cross the line so we didn’t remove it and it created quite the controversy on that particular thread.  The user had been so nasty in previous comments that even that comment riled people up because they were fed up with that troll and their nastiness.

I think this is definetly worth a try. I just hope the software doesn’t threadban on just specific numbers of posts, because sometimes that’s just the OP or someone answering questins and clarifying things. Hopefully the software will flag he post so that it can be checked by a mod and if no issues it’s reopened.

Thanks for keeping us updated and for taking the immense time that it took to write that program. Hopefully it will make it easier on the Mods and yourself.

Thanks for cutting down on some of the issues.  I actually stepped away from WeddingBee in December because of a lot of the issues, but I was drawn back.  I’m glad to see that some of the issues I wasn’t a fan of are being resolved in a fair and appropriate manner.  Thanks for all your hard work!  🙂

Thanks, Mr. Bee! Loving the threadban idea 🙂

Things have certainly calmed down a lot and I really enjoy coming on again (versus kind of staying away or not commenting much).

Thanks! I remember that “meh” comment in the full figure section. It was really rude and hurtful to have someone post about being confident with her dress and then someone come along and say, “meh”
I like the threadban idea too.

Thanks Mr. Bee!  It sounds like the new controls put in place have been well thought-out!
