the wb “rules” are pretty subjective. you can’t deliver a personal attack or spam. everything else is determined by the mods. look at mr. bee’s latest post on this issue.

eta: forgot add the link. mr. bee’s post is here.

Just be polite in whatever you say. Dont attack anyone personally. Dont make any directly rude remarks to someone. Dont bash others. Its not that hard to follow. Basically – treat people here the way you want to be treated and the way you would treat people in real life.

Weddingbee is awesome.  I thought I would leave once I got married but I love it as a forum.  I love the advice I get here and a lot of the topics.

Unfortunately, more recently I think, there have been some trolls passing through (or staying).  A troll is someone who makes an account and posts a controversial topic/subject/question that almost always gets the Bees all riled up. 🙂  Maybe because they are bored?  Or just like to see the heat? 

You are entitled to your opinion obviously but the consensus (and rules) is to make sure it isn’t a personal attack or snarky.  i.e. Your wedding is going to suck because you have a circus as your entertainment vs. I don’t think I would go for the circus but your recaps will be interesting!  Or just plain don’t comment.  One of my favorite posts recently was this one http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/obligation-to-provide-a-college-education with 3 pages of opinions and not one personal attack or judgement.  Everyone just said how they feel and no one started a personal fight for why what someone else was doing is wrong.

It reminds me of a discussion of politics with my coworker.  What started as a little discussion turned heated (her side only because I didn’t care) where she didn’t let it go until she felt my opinion was changed.  Just remember, everyone is different.  Sometimes you agree with the majority and sometimes you don’t.

Sometimes a thread can get off topic by accident and someone might remind the commenters to not threadjack or to keep on topic.  That’s just to keep threads organized.
