I totally went through your post history when I saw you were from Santa Cruz. Hope you don’t think I’m creepy.
I’m a stalker for Bees who are getting married in my area or on my same date. I’m curious what they’re doing for their weddings, if they’re using the same vendors, or if they’re facing my same problems! I hope that dosen’t make me a total creep in your eyes OP.

It doesn’t creep me out, I think it’s hilarious. If you don’t want something that you’ve said in the past to bite you in the ass, then don’t post it in the first place. Not only have I read over another Bee’s posts, but I also think it’s hilarious when I see someone else doing it. It’s the internet- this stuff happens.
That aside, I know who 99% of the posters on the forum are because I’ve had an account on here for 2 years (a different one prior to this). With the more “avid,” posters, you just begin recognoze their avatar immediately and the general topics that they post about. I also always remember the really “out there,” posts.

No. I love the shirt you’re wearing, by the way!

@Aquaria: I have to agree with many previous posters … It doesn’t creep me out at all.
I’m on the Bee quite a bit (at least whenever I have some free time), so I post pretty frequently. I’ve had people comment on things I’ve posted in the past (or send me private messages) and I’ve never once been like, “Oh my God STALKER!!!” Haha.
I actually do appreciate it when people call others out on completely inconsistent stories. Sometimes I’ll think I recognize the username and/or avatar and be like, “Hmmm. Didn’t she just write something about X and now she’s saying something that would basically make X false?” And then I’ll check back later and see that apparently I am thinking of the same person because another Bee called them on their shit.
I’m usually too lazy to search through previous posts to figure out if the person is “legit.” I have done this on occasion, though, particularly if someone’s story is just really crazy. I then don’t have to waste my time responding if they’re just making shit up.
And, as others have said, sometimes it just adds to the story. For example, a Bee posts about something her fiance did that completely betrayed her trust. If someone is like, “Oh, I remember that you previously posted that he also did X and Y. Yeah, bad situation. Get out now,” it can help others give advice based on a more complete picture (versus one incident).
