I haven’t been posting on Wedding Bee very long, but I do read some of the posts on the boards, and I have noticed that it seems like there are a lot of trolls on here?
Am I incorrect in my assumption? I hate to be a skeptic, but when I see some very “flame-worthy” posts initially posted by someone who created their account a couple hours ago, my troll radar goes off. LOL
Perhaps it is just from my experience from other message boards, so I am just wondering if trolls are a common occurance here too?

I think it’s like a lot of forums, where ‘suspicious’ posts tend to appear a bunch at a time, and then none for months. I’ve definitely noticed some, um… odd ones… recently 🙂

While we do get some trolls, I don’t think it is nearly as bad as many other sites.
We do more often get users who will create a new anonymous account to go “under cover” so that a really personal post isn’t tied to their main account (where they may have shared names, pictures, etc).
They may have a brand new account but they aren’t trolls.

It does seem like lately there have been a lot of posts that seem reallllyyyy out there by new users. Calling someone a troll is against the rules here just FYI. It is hard to tell what is real and fake here because we have had some for sure real users post some outrageous situations. I just offer input and hope I am not wasting my time on someone who is a liar.

Mrs.KMM said it great. There are bees who do create an anonymous account when they have an issue/situation they may think is embarrassing.
Flag any posts that you feel may be violating ToS or seem very suspicious to you, but please remember to keep an open mind that it may be an anonymous account. As a friendly reminder, calling a member a troll is againt the ToS so it’s best for the mod team of the website to handle any suspicious posts through the flags.
Also, welcome to the hive. So glad you joined our great community! =)
