Yep.  Especially with threads regarding “young” brides (early twenties) and waiting threads.  Some posters just really don’t want to hear what most of the rest of us plainly see.

I would prefer an honest opinion on a thread I started here. If I wanted a sugar coated here is what you want to hear answer then I would ask people I know personally! I totally agree with what you’ve said.

i think it kind of depends…sometime when people are ranting about something and clearly in an emotional state, i would never turn around and give advice that would just upset them more.  if it isnt a blatant rant about someone/something in their life/wedding then i think they should just appreciate the advice that is given.  thats why i tend to stay away from the waiting boards because i think if i gave my honest opinion about some of those post i would really upset people.

My opinion is that you can’t “plainly see” anything via WB/online so I don’t knwo why people take the advice on here SO seriously and get upset.  Think the advice applies and could make sense? Take it.  Or just think about it.  Don’t agree?  Then just say “thanks for your time” and leave it!

I agree. We shouldn’t be mean or nasty to each other, but it is always okay to voice a different opinion on a message board. That is the whole point right?

I actually agree about the young brides. I’ve seen so many threads started where young brides are basically asking others to justify getting married so young and when someone like myself tries to chime in and say “Maybe there’s a reason you should wait” I get slammed down. They definitely are never open to a different opinion.

I tend to avoid the posts that ask for advice on situations.

My pet peeve though is the people who can’t or don’t say”thanks for your time” when they ask for ideas or sources for something they are trying to locate.

It’s fun to help someone out and I work in a nursing call center so have the time available between calls, but sometimes I wonder if common courtesy is about to fade away entirely.

i am a young bride, early twenties fi is mid twenties, and i would never post about my age because i agree that a lot of times those posting about their age are looking for justification…and if youre looking for justification you are not ready to get married. period. but dont hate on us young brides in general though, haha.

when i feel like people are looking for justification i just dont post which may be why i dont have that many posts lol, becausea lot of the posts are just looking for justification

@jslsbride62610:

I respectfully disagree.  Sometimes it takes an objective observer to actually see what’s going on in a given situation. Granted, we’re going solely on the information we’re given from the poster, but many times it’s pretty darn obvious when something isn’t right or some story a poster has been getting doesn’t hold water. I’ve seen some bees post multiple threads about the same drama over and over again, all the while refusing to accept that they’re being fed a bunch of b.s.  I don’t need to know someone personally to be able to call b.s. on a line they’ve been given.

@lezlers:

You have a good point about the objectivity.  Of course sometimes things vary region to region (eg ring carat size) so we may not be completely objective, but nobody is.  I was thinking more in terms of the big decisions like whether to leave someone after they cheat on you, or whether to have a baby, etc, because those things encompass so many other little things that would take forever to read online.  But I get what you are saying about calling BS.

Since we’re venting, here’s my vent: people who come on here looking for medical advice. We are not doctors! Or at least most of us aren’t. 🙂

It doesn’t annoy me as much as it worries me. DON’T TAKE OUR ADVICE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! GO TO THE DOCTOR!!!!
