    I think it’s silly to say you dislike someone on here! IMO we are all here for friendship and support but at the same time most of us don’t really “know” each other so you shouldn’t dislike someone just for writing something especially when that may only be one small part of who they are.

    I’m not going to say I dislike any Bees, but there are some that push my buttons post after post, so I tend to avoid them and their posts.

    After just one comment? No. If they consistently make comments that I disagree with/that I think are out of line/whatever, then yeah. Not really that different than how I deal with people in real life.

    I’m lost. What was the conversation that prompted the question.

    But having been in some heated discussions with some other bees on older topics, I would say that I get a little mad in the moment, but as soon as I see them say something nice on another thread it’s gone.

    I love it when I get to see another side of a bee who I didn’t particularly care for in a pp.  I think I mentally start rooting for them in new battles lol.

    @PinkAndPearls2013:   In regards to the “support” factor, I think this recent thread has some of us (at least me) thinking we might not have the support and rather the judgment of some bee’s if we were to have something really awful happen to us.

    With that said, I think a little differently about some people on here now.  But I’m sure I’ll get over it and I don’t take it personally.

    @pinkzebra:  Don’t worry – I think you explained yourself and were respectful, so people shouldn’t hold any sort of grudge.

    I have to admit there are a few women who I think of differently after seeing dozens and dozens of uninformed and downright offensive political posts.

    I read things and it may make me ” dislike” their answer or stance but by the same token, I also like a lot of what people so, too!

    Some people are just dumb, end of story.  No matter what they say, they’ll always get the *eye roll * from me, but that’s few and far between, and I’m sure no one cares if I like them or not haha. 

    Its just the internet, so I try not to take it all too personally.

    @pinkzebra:  after you have been here for a while, you get an idea of what kind of person (generally speaking anyway) someone is. That opinion isn’t formed after one post. But sometimes over the course of time I see that I just already know I won’t see eye to eye with that person, so I just avoid thier posts when I can. I wouldn’t say I “dislike” them.

    Also, there are certain things that I would immediately change my thoughts over. I won’t say what, but in rare instances it’s happened.

    I contributed to the original post that was deleted and now I honestly think that the post @pinkzebra: you are referring to is just unnecessary. That being said, don’t stress about what other people think. We all have different points of views and ideas and that’s fine. Some express their “disgust” for others’ opinions like they’re merely saying  “Hi”..not taking into consideration that when you say passive aggressive statements about another person, even online ,it hurts their feelings. Don’t take it personally! 

     

    @KateByDesign:  You’re right, there is no way a bunch of strangers could be that “supporting” about people they have nothing to do with. This originated as a wedding related blog/boards….personal issues like the ones that were discussed previously have little place in an online public community of strangers.
