As a blogger, I have to point out that this is a message board, not a blog.  πŸ™‚

I think the Bee has great discussions…sometimes debates.  I routinely see Bees disagree on a topic without the conversation disolving into an arguement. 

If all responses were the same to every topic, this place would be pretty boring and it wouldn’t be half the resource that it is.

I don’t understand why people post things to the internet if they are not prepared for honest opinions. This isn’t therapy and it’s not church, it’s the world wide web. It’s no different from standing on a box in Grand Central asking people if they thing it’s okay to ask your fiance for a bigger ring, or if pink dresses with red sashes clash, or if you Mother-In-Law is being unreasonable by requesting a 10 song block of Barry Manilow (with three choruses of “Mandy”). You are asking a bunch of strangers!

Also, don’t think throwing the word “VENT” in front of a post means that others aren’t allowed to post in disagreement. Once again, internet, people, not kindergarten. The mods step in when people go from disagreeing/debating to snark and mean, their job is not to validate your feelings.

@MrsSl82be: Agreed.

If you don’t want to read honest and disagreeing opinions, perhaps an open forum like this is not something you would enjoy.

@moderndaisy: I agree.

I think people can be too harsh. Giving your opinion in a polite and tactful manner is different than just throwing out your opinion, that may be offensive or hurtful to the OP or others reading. It IS the internet and people can say what they wish, but there’s nothing wrong with doing so nicely.

@sugarxcoated: Whenever anyone uses the term “harsh,” I seriously hear Cher from Clueless going “That was way harsh, Tai”… πŸ™‚ I once laughed in class when one of my Prof’s said “That’s way harsh”…he may or may not have been talking about Tax Code deductions for trees…

@Rubies: I loved that movie! Okay, I still love it… I had the poster with all their “lingo”? “As if!” “Whatever!”

@Mr.Smithsgirl: Really, “*worst*” was the only correction you could see to make there?

This thread is really lame and hurts my brain.

“Lmao” the only thing that should hurt your brain is your attempt at being humorous πŸ˜€

^ Looks like I was successful.

@Mr.Smithsgirl: So you’re going to flag people for giving their opinions? You seem to dislike the way this site functions, people read threads and give opinions and not everyone agrees. I’m not hiding behind any www, considering my avatar is my e-pic and I’m pretty sure anyone I know could find me here. But why should I have to be afraid to give my opinion because someone might flag it if they don’t like it?

@Mr.Smithsgirl: Insulting another poster while hiding behind your ‘www.’ is not what I would consider ‘loosening up’. Gotta remember – humor doesn’t always translate the way you expect it to, so if that was supposed to have been a joke – it did not come off that way.
