ladyjane123 :  “I don’t think saying I take statements out of context is fair.”

You took @j_jaye comment on how the OP did not think of how her SO would feel on having his business posted in a public forum and twisted into her criticizing  domestic violence victims for talking about the abuse.

kiram :  exactly!!! Saying “it’s the internet” is such a fucking dismissive and uncompassionate (is this a word?) thing to say about someone who was just trying to seek help, yet whose life and relationship was likely ruined within a matter of hours because of some bullshit bottom-feeding “journalist” looking for the next big story to get people gossiping and ridiculing.

 

some of you ladies never disappoint when it comes to forgetting that behind your phone/computer screens are REAL FUCKING PEOPLE on these boards. people with lives and feelings. please don’t be so quick to dismiss something that has likely impacted someone so deeply.

Robyn0214 :  Wrong. Her original statement was, “I mean doesn’t the groom of the original post (or any of the posts made about other people on here) deserve not to have their life posted about by someone else?” 

She thinks people don’t have the right to come on a board and post asking for advice or help because it isn’t fair to the person they are referring to in their post. Many bees on here post about needing support or advice on how to leave an abusive situation, physical or verbal. I thought she should know her statement applied not only to a woman talking about her ring but to them also. To all the bee’s on here in a variety of situations. People who should have a place to come talk about the person causing them pain and asking for help. Who is more important in those siutations? The OP asking for help? Or her boyfriend who is abusing her, and his feelings about her posting about him on here? 

THAT was my point. Stop putting words in my mouth. If I wanted to say she was criticizing domestic violence victims, than i would have just said that. But i DIDN’T.

I think some people who state their opinions on the internet need to take a trip to Oz first and ask the wizard for a heart.

so I think the issue was that this thread got posted (within a couple hours) on Reddit, on a subreddit called “ChoosingBeggars” more specifically. A lot of tabloids and online website are scouring Reddit to find stories. I bet that’s where they found it originally, instead of the Bee

kiram :  What would the timeframe be between The Sun post and the original OP thread post when it was posted, any ideas?

Ditto. Also pretty sure she didn’t need you to interpret her comments for her, nor did I need you interpret mine for me.  Robyn0214 :

ladyjane123 :  I was referring to the hypocritical nature of post like yours but yeah you seem really big on putting words into other people’s mouths and I am laughing at your moralistic high horse attitude (like saying this is bullying) whilst actively trying to shame other bee’s with your said moralistic attitude. As I said hypocritical.

Bee’s post all kinds of things on here that have nothing to do with them but sure twist that into meaning that I don’t think an abuse victim should post on here.

I don’t think you are bullying me at all whatsoever. Your the one who said people shouldn’t post on here about people in their lives. I think they should be able to if it’s helpful to them. 

What is bullying is journalists inciting their readers to verbally attack a woman just because she doesn’t like her ring.
