If you got a message from an admin…then the flagging wasn’t for nothing. (People can flag for anything, but unless something serious is flagged, then you’ll never hear about it.)

I have never seen you on the boards. hence I’ve never flagged you.  But question… why are you posting this?  Why don’t you handle this with the mods in an adult way?  They are they ones that can explain it to you, not us.

ETA: Just checked that thread… wow.  There is a section for waiting bees on here, you should be familiar with what type of board you are on before posting.  Not everyone is engaged on this site and there are many delicate emotional matters that are posted here that need to be handled with tact (your post in that thread was not).  If the mods contacted you after a flagging, then that means that they thought it was distasteful (as do I).

@DeathByDesign: yeah…you probably shouldn’t go around telling other people that they should rethink being on this website…that’s not very nice. 🙁

I think this thread itself needs to be flagged because its just argumentative and unnecessary and reading the other thread posted by deathbydesign I have to say I agree with whoever flagged your post

@glamachica45: To be fair, what you posted on that other thread might have made that other poster feel unwelcome (the way you feel now), so it is pretty understandable why you were flagged.

If you are wanting to dispute a warning, you will get more prompt attention by PMing a moderator directly rather than posting on the boards. For the moment, I believe Mrs. DG is the head honcho of the mod team. You should really try sending her a message with any questions. 🙂

I will say that after reading that other thread – I do actually think you were trying to give the girl advice based on your own experience, basically I felt that you did not want to see her to get hurt like you did when you were expecting your own proposal from your previous Boyfriend or Best Friend. BUT, you have to remeber that nobody can hear your tone of voice, and the words themselves came out a little harsh.

I don’t think your previous posts should lead to you being removed, but you do want to be aware of how you phrase your emotions.

I am sorry if you feel like your flagging was unwarranted. It sounds like while you didn’t intend to hurt or upset anyone despite that being the end result.

I am very wary of the flagging option and have yet to use it. I can say with 100% that there have been other bees that have said far worse things than what you even suggested about certain things that apply to me with judgements about money spending etc. Rather than flag I ignore it, but not everyone operates under that plan.

Stick around and don’t feel unwelcome…this is what happens when large amounts of women (and some men) occupy a single space. I know that I over moderate what I say (almost to the point of silly) so perhaps that is the best option in the future?

Best of luck!

Maybe you were flagged for your down talking and rudeness. Who are you to tell someone if they shoud be on here or not? Also, after reading many of your posts, you give backhanded compliments.
