@Aquaria:  Oh, man. I am SO guilty of this. There’s a Bee that I wish was my BFF, and a bunch that are so funny I LOVE seing what they’re going to post, one chick that I swear is leading my parallel life (she agrees), and a couple of Bees I won’t respond to, because they get a little crazy sometimes!

But I’m also on here waaaaaay too much…

@bowsergirl:  And I admit I was a total creep on one Bee and Googled her to see if she was actually 21, as she claimed. That was creepy, I admit. Haha.

…Is it creepy that I’m pretty sure I know exactly which Bee you’re referring to?

If you’re on the Bee a lot, then you get used to seeing the same avatars/names and people tend to gravitate towards the same threads. For example, you’ll see me all over the nesting boards and there are a bunch of ladies that I love over there and remember things that they post about. However, there are definitely people here that post variations of the same thing over and over again, or are constantly contradicting themselves. Sometimes I haven’t even read earlier posts, but if they are posting something about “what should I do…” in a particular situation (usually involving staying with or leaving a guy) I’ll go to their profile and look at other posts to see what the history is. If the girl has been posting the same questions over and over, or complaining about the same guy for a long time, I’ll definitely make a comment about it.

@Aquaria:  I have bees that I recognise because I like them, so I’m more likely to remember what they’ve said before. Then there are the bees who post some crazy things, and those stick out too. So, yeah, if someone is posting about how their usually calm SO threw their dog out the window I’m probably going to remember it when the next week they’re posting about how their “usually calm SO” punched a hole through the wall.

@KC-2722:  +1

The site does have the option to see what people have previously posted. ANYTHING you post on the internet can be found. Oh well.

I definitely have favorite Bees, and I remember their stances on certain things…

but I don’t go through a Bee’s old posts unless someone else points out a conflict- then I get nosy and look, lol.

I don’t think it’s creepy, although I only go back to older posts on rare occasion.

@NickiBee:  This!  I agree wholeheartedly…  While I don’t always review every Bee’s history, I may look at it if something reads a bit “off.” I don’t want to go off of my first impression, which may be a result of not having all of the facts or background. 🙂  If folks are forthright about how they represent themselves or their situation, then it should all be a non-issue, right?

@stonewell:  Nope. That’s what the government says, too. And overly nosey girlfriends/boyfriends who wonder why they get dumped.

The fact is, privacy is important. It doesn’t mean that someone is hiding something bad. And just because you CAN look into someone’s personal business doesn’t mean you SHOULD. (Note, I am not advocating an extreme stance such as “ignore the user profile link at all times,” but if someone doesn’t know where the line is and goes on too elaborate of a background sniff, yes, they’re being creepy and rude at best.)

@MrsPaperFlowers:  haha!! no, I really thought it was cute! Plus the name “Rubbs” does kinda stick out. Some usernames are so long I’d never remember them.

When you’re here a long time, you get to “know” the regulars and remember things about them. I have an exceptional memory also–not photographic but one of the best “normal” memories I know of. So I associate certain bees with certain topics/traits/characteristics and if it’s applicable to a situation I’ll mention it or keep it in mind when giving advice. I don’t go searching for past history unless something seems fishy though. 

The topic ‘Des it creep you out when bees track other bees?’ is closed to new replies.
