@mrbee:  Yes, I’ve participated in the discussion topic quite politely.  I’m not the one getting upset or posting personal insults or attacks.  Where is your admonishment to those posters?

@lisa105:  Lisa no one is personally attacking you, it just gets old when someone keeps repeating the same things over and over.

@lisa105: Eek, I have to say I agree with that one.  Lisa you have a very strong opinion which many people may disagree with, but I am not sure its any less valid than the one’s presented.

@lisa105:  It’s called last wording.  There was a pretty big discussion about this and the weddingbee community decided that it needed to be stopped.

@LadyLuna711: -gets popcorn and wine-

You just opened a can of worms.

I say people on this site are 50/50. You are going to hear from the etiquette police and you are going to hear from people who see it as making things easier for the guests (which is what etiquette is about right?)

I’m doing it. Only because I know MY family and friends. Emily Post and Miss Manners do not. ^_^

I am from the West and over here we put the registry cards in the invites. How are you friends going to get a hold of your parents and sister when they don’t know who they are or have any contact info?  Every wedding I have been invited to has had it. I will be putting it in with mjy invite as well as it is custom here. Do what you want to do. It is different in different places. If someone is busy thinking about how  “Tacky” it was to put your registry card in with your invite, they need a better hobby. LOL

I guess my problem with singling out Lisa is that the community decided that POSTS like this were kinda stupid.  No one stated that HER opinion was stupid or unwelcomed.  Now LadyLuna (OP) is a Newbee so she may not have searched for this answer before posting it, but now that it was posted I don’t think its right to specifically ask Lisa to move on when she is responding like the rest of us (albeit differently).

@Miss Tattoo: man. Popcorn and wine at 10:08am. I may disagree with you on the diamond issue, but can I be your friend?

@heather25:  Here’s the thing, I’m not putting the registry cards in my invitations, but I am also not on here condemning people for their choices.

This topic is tired. Or I’m tired of this topic. Or both.

@lola2011: Sure! I say it’s never too early to drink! I mean, I don’t need a drink to have a good time and would totally be okay at a cash bar wedding. Wait…that’s another topic. ha ha ha ha.

Back on topic: I wonder what the etiquette police would do if Prince William and Kate included registry cards in their invites. I’m sure they won’t because seriously…what do you get a Prince!? I’m sure they don’t need blenders and such. lol But what if they did!? I bet everyone in the world would start including registry cards. ^_^

I can’t wait to see the new threadjacking policy in action today!

Some of the commenters on this thread may be casual members of Weddingbee, and haven’t seen how a few users have repeatedly created drama on the threads by jacking them into back and forth arguments.

@lisa105:  You are (still) engaging in the behavior that I described in my threadjacking post.

Threadjacking on Weddingbee

I’ve given you two warnings in the past, and yet you are continuing to comment the same thing over and over on every thread about particular topics. Then when people respond, you respond that you never actually crossed the line into a personal attack.

I can’t tell if you just have a strong opinion, or if you are purposefully coming right up to the line and not crossing it (although I’ve had to delete several of your comments that were clearly personal attacks).  Either way, you have generated more flags than any other user in the past year.

We have yet to formalize our new policy around all this (sorry all, my net has been unreliable this week!).  Once we do, I will post more around all this.
