@invalid_username: The main point of this seems to be bashing and I dont really understand why you would start it. It seems not only snarky, but also like a personal attack. Of course there are bees that not everyone will relate to for one reason or another and others that people will feel more of a bond to, but there is no reason to state your opinion on that….just dont read the ones you dont want to read and do read the ones you like. Its that simple. No need to make ANY of the bees feel like they are unappreciated or that people dont like them…..bee bloggers are going to be wondering “is she talking about me” and honestly thats just rude~!!!

Admin – if you see this can you please take it down? I just dont think its appropriate.

This question has been asked at least twice or thrice in the last month or so.

@PitBulLover: I completely agree and I’m not usually one to censor myself. It takes a lot of effort and a lot of guts to put yourself out there like the Bees do, and I don’t want ANY of them to think they aren’t liked!

@bRooklynRocks: By this same poster or in general? Regardless of how many times its been asked it doesnt make it okay – positive shout outs are wonderful but no need to bring up negativity about particular people

Its one thing to say “I dislike this about the site or the community as a whole” but its a whole other thing to say “I dislike this bee because her SO seems annoying”

@MandaMack: Yeah normally I wouldnt ever say “take this post down” or “thats rude or snarky” to anyone but in this case I just dont see a point to this thread except bashing….

It is called free speech, people. If you don’t feel like commenting on it then dont, but there is no reason to “police” or ask for this post to be taken down.

I’m not sure how this is any worse than the post I made with “Is there anyone who you just don’t like” which got about 100 posts..

@bRooklynRocks: I haven’t seen any posts like this (at least not worded like this) and I’ve been on here since the beginning of June…

@babyboo: If you’re so into free speach then why would you care if we said we didn’t like the post?

All I know is if I were a blogger and I saw this it would make me upset

This seems like a uniquely unproductive thread.

Bee bloggers are very gracious in allowing us to share in a significant part of their lives, and take on what is, essentially, a second job for the duration of their time with the hive.  Insinuating, however indirectly, that you don’t like one of them without even having the nerve to say so to her face, is cowardly.

It’s very simple.  If you don’t like someone’s posts, don’t read them.  No need to make it known in a public forum that you aren’t a fan.

I really don’t see how this is different from the “who’s your fav blogging bee?” threads– I am sure the ladies who blog are intelligent enough to realize if no one shouts out to them & could thusly feel left out or unloved that way.

 That being said, I find Both types of threads to be somewhat unproductive/unsavoury.

As for the bloggers, I haven’t been reading the new ones lately, not that it is anything against the new generation or anything, I’ve just been in a bit of a wedding funk lately & don’t feel like reading the blogs — I might later on & go back through the archives but right now my overall attitude towards the blogs is ‘meh’ (and that’s not to say there weren’t past bloggers that I really enjoyed reading either).

@teaadntoast: very well put…thank you!

I guess I dont really care if this is taken down or not Im just saying its not really nice and babyloo I had been on the boards prior to this for about 9 months and NEVER saw posts like this one or the one you posted before until very recently…Im not sure when the bee got so cliquey and snarky…but it did so I just feel like its best to just steer away from that!
