I don’t think regulating people’s stone preferences and statements reflecting those preferences is the solution. People are entitled to like what they like, and explain the reasons behind their point of view.
This is a respect problem.
People should learn to interact with one another in a respectful, dignified manner without insulting and antagonizing one another. Ganging up on someone is bullying. I don’t care how much you disagree with their opinions or statements. If you call them out by name, insult them, and encourage others to insult them, you are no better than a playgroud bully who breaks the nerds glasses and kicks the chubby kid.
It is really disheartening to see how many grown women act like children when they get upset. When I don’t respect someone, I disregard their remarks. I don’t degrade myself to starting a witch hunt to prove how wrong they are. If someone insults me, I stick up for myself to show I am not a doormat who will take it, and then ignore them and move one.
It’s better not to waste your time and energy on the small stuff in life. There are giants to slay. If you use all your energy on silly things, you won’t have any left to kill the giants.
An opinion is an opinion. Perhaps those offended need thicker skin?
This is dumb. I don’t think anything should be “banned.”
If you have a disagreement, leave the thread. It is literally that easy.
or at least according to wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gemstone
and according encylopedia Britannica, diamonds are gemstones as well: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/161406/diamond
ETA: I’m just asking because I assumed OP’s question was broadly including all stone types
but getting into a debate to prove how a diamond is better than a moissy or a vice versa is just petty and rude and will offend people
To each is own. Why do you (and I don’t mean you personally) care about whether or not someone has a diamond/moissy/sapphire/cz?
Lesbihonest, it makes for great reading though. All sides need to cool down, step back and not take everything a complete stranger says personally to heart. Opinions are like butt holes, everyone’s got one.
@HappySky7: I think people need to wash the sand out of their vaginas.
The only “bashing”, which is a long shot, would be Moissy. Essentially, you want to create a new TOS rule to protect Moissy owners?
Most of the time, the debate is a fact debate. Telling someone their stone is not an actual gem isn’t bashing…it is scientific fact.
On one end, we have Moissy owners insulting diamond owners for being frivoulous. “Oh look at me. I got the same look for less AND I can make my house paymets. I am much more responsible than you.
The other end, we have diamond owners that scoff at the fact that most Moissy owners won’t admit they wanted the look of a diamond without the price.
We should start replacing curse words with the word “kitten” and start referring to our breasts as “love pillows”.
so they’re a simulated gemstone…?
but whatever………I think that it’s cool to get whatever you like! I like looking at the ring porn, regardless of what it’s made of!
I wouldn’t have joined this site if I couldn’t deal with the restrictions on bashing actual life choices.
But honestly, diamond vs. moissanite is about as “bad” as Consumer Reports. It’s just a disagreement about the value of a purchase.
If we can’t handle that, then yeah, there might as well be a blanket “no disliking anything” rule.

I don’t think there’s a need to debate this, so I’m going to go ahead and close this thread now.
