    I click away from threads like that. If I say I like your dress/invites/photos, I am telling the truth. The only time I’ll openly say something’s not to my taste is if the person asked, and even then I’ll only really do it if I feel it’s helpful and I can offer a suggestion (maybe a changed neckline, or they haven’t bought the dress yet, whatever)

    Same as tee22.  If it’s a thread where say… they’ve given you two choices but I hate both? I won’t bother commenting.

    Otherwise, I am pretty honest with my feelings, both here and in person.

    I had a post like this not too long ago. Most people just don’t comment at all. There are many extremely sensitive bee’s on here.

    I voted that I’m “honest enough.” I will tell someone I don’t like whatever they’ve picked/chosen if they really seem to want honest opinions and there is still time to change their decision, but other than that if I don’t like something or disagree I don’t like, I just don’t respond at all. I feel like in general people don’t want to hear negativity, and ESPECIALLY on “emotional” posts if you try to disagree with the OP at all it usually turns into “OMG you’re all so mean I was just venting.” 

    So I just just don’t answer if I disagree.

    Yep, same as the others. If I really don’t like something, I don’t comment at all. My tastes are not the same as everyone and vice versa. I feel really strongly about the saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. especially when it’s about a wedding dress someone loves that may just not be my taste. Why ruin it for them, if they love it?

    Although, sometimes if there is something I’m not fussy about, but a feature I really do like, I will comment on how I like that feature!

    I just don’t comment if I think something is stupid, ugly, tacky or horrible, unless the bee is asking for advice and then I’ll usually offer a way to improve something (unless the only good option is “burn it”).

    Personally I don’t like posts that only say “What do you think of my ____?” because it sounds like they’re asking for opinions but no one wants to hear “It’s ugly”. If it were worded “I love my ___, just sharing!” then that’s cool they’re not looking for opinions or if it says “How can I improve my ____?” then they’re looking for advice on how to make something better.

    I think the poll should be how honest do you think the Bees are! 😉
