Girl, I almost did that a while back, but my inbox was inundated with really nice Bees that encouraged me to stay. Honestly, the nice people totally outweigh the jerks, and you can always report rude people to the moderators. I would highly encourage you to stay and be one of the nice, helpful Bees that balance out the bad ones. πŸ˜‰

P.S. Just browse The Knot and other sites and I think you’ll find that WB is definitely the least dramatic of these wedding sites! πŸ™‚

I agree…there are a few that can most def rub you the wrong way. But most Bees are as sweet as HONEY!! πŸ™‚

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: The drama comes in phases. You can’t expect a bunch of women who are planning their weddings to be happy all the time. Bridezilla’s come out all the time. People snap. People get defensive. It’s human nature. Is anyone attacking you personally or sending you unwanted messages? If that’s the case, you should alert a mod.  I love WB, even with it’s sometimes drama. πŸ™‚ Stick around.

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: From what I’ve seen of you, you have some really good advice and are an asset to these boards. If cattiness is the only reason you’re considering leaving, just stay. πŸ™‚ You could always take a short hiatus/break if it’s getting to you!

Sorry to see you go, if that is what you decide to do, but I haven’t seen the posts that you are commenting about. Still a very happy place to me πŸ™‚

I think that if a post is bothersome to you, you should flag it and/or exit out of it and not go back into it.

If the “snarkyness and rudeness” has been directed to you, then you should report that. I know that it is not tolerated here. I also know that sometimes things might come across as being snarky and/or rude when they are not. It is just the way the person writes and probably talks. It is sometimes very hard to get the tone from written content. If you think someone is being snarky and/or rude to you, then you could always pm them to find out if what they were saying was meant to come across to you the way you are reading it, or if it was meant in a different way. Not everyone has the ability to not be blunt. If someone in a post is asking a question and wants an honest answer, the answers should not be considered rude and/or snarky.

Disclaimer: I apologize if my comments come across as being rude and/or snarky. This is just the way I write and the way I talk. If we were in the same room you could read my body language and hear my tone and know that I do not mean these comments in a bad way. They are just my honest opinions.

although i see where you are coming from, i too made a very similar comment, and i have to say that brought on more snarkiness. i hope that you stay, and in doing so stay away from the threads that are bound to cause issues. there are so many nice and caring bees here, you just have to avoid those who cause the issues. ( it always seems to be the same people).

I’ve read some of your posts. You do invite drama. Be that as it may, the bee is actually one of the best if not the best wedding website I’ve been on.

I think the Bee has some of the nicest ladies around.  There are threads where you know there is going to be drama…I just stay away from them.  I used to click, but I realized that I was getting caught up in the bickering.  Now I just keep scrolling.

I also find myself staying in certain forums.  πŸ™‚

 

EDIT: Kendall, you do seem to invite drama at times, based on the threads you’ve started.  Why not walk on the bright said for a while and see where that gets you? I bet a positive outlook will help more than the repsonses you get to your threads.

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: I know what you mean I actualy first started under a diffrent name (GASP) But i didnt feel welcomed so I left for awhile but desided to come back ended up with a diffrent name (that i like more) beccause i forgot my password and got a new e-mail anyways. If you think that you are having issues just take a break and you can always come back! I HOPE YOU COME BACK… and still cant wait to see the pictures of your dress!
