Bees who boast about having big rocks or want to upgrade from a big rock to an even bigger rock, to the point where it sounds like a joke, but never post pics. I have to laugh when I see things like “I have a 3 ct but it looks too small on my finger”.

It’s against the TOS on this site to accuse others of being trolls. In general I have not found bees to be boastful about rings any more than other bees. Everyone shows off their rings.

@Aquaria: It’s the internet, so I’m sure trolls are bound to get through once in a while. Whenever I see a post like “3ct is looking small on my finger” with no pics, I just assume that the person posting either has really large hands/fingers that they might be embarassed about, or they’re just looking for reassurance.

@HappySky7: I’m not calling anyone out by name or attaching links. And I think it’s ok to choose not to show pictures for privacy reasons. But sometimes those threads make me chuckle.

@Aquaria: There are very few bees that post things like that. I’m just letting you know in case you weren’t aware of that.
I don’t think it’s fair to pick on girls who have large diamonds/stones and upgrade. Yes, 3ct looks seems pretty extravagant to many of us, but it’s not to some and I don’t think it’s fair to presume that they are “trolling” by posting about it. If they are trying to use that as trolling, well, that’s not great trolling. The point of trolling is to get people riled up and cause emotional responses. I don’t think most people get all up in arms because people have or want bigger stones. In this case, you are finding it annoying though, so one could say you may have been trolled if that was the case. But TBQH it really doesn’t seem like the intention behind the posts.

@Aquaria: sometimes on ring threads but really all across the boards. When I see something like ” My Maid/Matron of Honor is refusing to buy a live tiger to ride on during the ceremony, why is everyone so mean to me?!?! IT”S MY DAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! then yes I giggle at the troll 🙂

@Aquaria: I have. You’re not crazy.

As YUN01 said, please keep in mind that calling someone a “troll” is against TOS. Please keep in mind that this is a public forum, and as such people are entitled to their opinions even if they may seem a bit unorthodox to me or you. Ladies here on Weddingbee come from a variety of different backgrounds, and as such what may seem like a lot to one person, may seem “average” to another. And vice versa.
Some women don’t know how to post pictures on threads, and if you see a thread such as one like mentioned above, perhaps you could help the poster to understand how to share her images with the rest of the hive! Remember, we’re all here to help and support one another. 🙂

In general I find most trolls post about sex. I don’t always believe what people say on the ring board or any other board necessarily, and sometimes I know it’s not true or that there’s important context to the story than what they’re saying, but I dunno. I see that as different as the sex topic trolls. I’m not sure why. Maybe because I can’t see a zitty 14 year old boy (yes, that’s how I imagine every troll for some reason) coming on a wedding forum to talk about something like engagement rings. I assume anyone saying this or that about her engagement ring, whether it’s true or not, probably…well, is actually a “her,” for one thing, and secondly, is at least actually interested in weddings/engagement rings.

i reckon i always thought they were legit
Post # 13
Yeah, I’ve noticed it. I don’t know why people insist on wasting our time.

In general I trust the OPs and believe what they are saying. There are always a few though that I must roll my eyes at because their stories or complaints are just too ridiculous to be true. This happens on the ring board and others.

The rings boards produce some of the most ridiculous drama, so I’m sure there are trolls who try to stir it up for funsies.

I’m sure their are trolls, but I’m also sure there are women that really are that shallow or insecure too. Shrinkage really does occur, and some of these women may have little self worth and find it in their worldly possessions. So I do believe sadly a good handful of these threads could be legit.
