Thanks to the mods. Sorry it got heated this weekend. I think the vast majority of us understand and appreciate the work you do immensely – your hard work is the reason we love this site as much as we do.

While I certainly do not condone how rude some people were to the mods, no one was aware that you had instructed the mods to not reply – and when warnings/ thread closures happen so quickly normally, it is easy to see why some people thought they were being ignored.

Thank you Penguin. And thank you to all the moderators on this site.  I don’t know where the community would be without all your dedication and hard work to make this a supportive and welcoming environment.

I also want to say that, given the circumstances, I think you (as admin) made the right decision in asking the moderators to step back as they do not deserve to be attacked by fellow members under any circumstance. And, whilst I don’t know the exact details of the deleted threads, it is clear from the subsequent aggressive and hateful fall out that these deletions were, in my opinion, necessary. Moreover, I completely respect the current ToS to safe-keep the integrity of the site by not allowing frivolous deletions (another thing that was brought up over the weekend).  I think the ToS is pretty clear regarding this, but like anything in this life is subject to interpretation.

I too, must join in and thank the moderation (and administrator!) team for the wonderful work you do here on the WB. My wedding has been over and I still love coming back here because of the welcoming and truly nice community (its rare to find these days on the internet!).

I appreciate you posting a thank you to all the mods and also sheding a bit of light on the reasoning of the decision to ask them to pull out of moderating these threads.

It was unfortunate what happened over the weekend and all the accusations the mods/admin team were getting. Hopefully we all can get back to helping brides choose between “Sash or no sash” or “How can I get my Future Mother-In-Law to like me” kinda threads.

Thank you again to all that keep the hive buzzin’!!!!

I always try to stay out of the kerscuffles but I thought this weekends was especially over the top. I am so sorry the mods took such a beating this weekend. I think you guys ARE loved and appreciated by most of us. Thanks for doing a sometimes thankless job. <3
