The way I see it is if you have the balls to put it out there and post something on the internet, then you have to have the balls to take what advice, criticism, opinions, etc, are given back to you. If you don’t want your shizz out there, don’t post and whine when you don’t hear exactly what you want to hear all of the time. And yes, there are ways to politely disagree w/o being all wenchy. 🙂 For the most part, this site is awesome. I don’t have time for The Knot’s culture.

@Eva Peron:  Thanks for the info. I had a poster tell me the otehr day she can’t belive my post didn’t violate TOS (and I reread it like 3000 times to figure out how I came off so much harsher than I meant to… and I just couldn’t… I mean, I was honest, but I also said some very nice things and tried to word carefully), but I figured it had probably been flagged if she felt so strongly, but I never get a warning or anything, so whether it was flagged or not is I suppose irrelevant.

@julies1949:  The lack of tone or inflection and how that effects conversation via the internet was the biggest hurdle I had when I first participated in threads.  A reader will subconciously fill-in the missing cues and the resulting message can then become completely different than its original intention.

@JessicaPop:  Please do your self a favor and instead of coming off like a total snob think TWICE before you speak… or type, that’s what any self respecting woman would do.

Wow everyone, I’m really sad to see the turn that this thread took. 🙁  I’m going to go ahead and close this post now based on this ToS violation:

xi.      Members come and go, but we discourage “flounce” posts (hasty goodbyes criticizing Weddingbee or its users that are written to stir up drama).  We reserve the right to delete or close these posts if they are particularly disruptive to the community.

OP: I’m very sorry to hear that you’re not happy here and if you do decide to go that you find a place that does help you find the happiness that you’re looking for.
