    @iarebridezilla:  I wish there was a like button….  Over the last couple of weeks I have seen some extremely passive aggressive posts towards OPs.  I don’t know what is thereason – could it be the full moon is on it’s way?!?  The ones that really get me are the ones that read a post, decide that it’s not beefy enough, make up an imaginary scenery and the slate the poor OP to high-heaven.  It’s a bit Whasallthatabout??  And then if ANYONE tries to correct them, whoooohhee!  Off they go! Have a swig of vodka for me – I’m off the drink for a few months. Wink

    @iarebridezilla:  Take a break from willfully misunderstanding what people are trying to say just so you can get offended by it

    LOVE IT.  Pretty much sums up all internet commenting.

    I have no idea what you’re talking about, but I must say you’re hysterically funny!  You should do stand up, seriously, girl. 

    Awesome!  🙂

    Still deciding what to vote …   Undecided  I’m pretty immune to insults, I have a thick skin and sharp tongue if necessary to defend myself, lol.  Nothing stops me from posting.

    I must have missed some really good stuff, though.  You should post links for me, hehe.

    here here!

    sometimes i worry i come off a lil bit this way because i generally dont care what other people do – i’ve dealt with real traumas in my life and, no, a person including registry info in her invitation does not qualify – and with all the things going on in life, ive found it wayyyy easier to not stress about every little thing other people insist on doing that i dont agree with

    but i know i can be judgemental, and i know i have thought/said mean things in my life, and i absolutely get stressed about idiotically small things no one else would ever care about and need to vent about them. 

    and thats one of the glorious things about anonymous message boards like the bee… we can vent about our Maid/Matron of Honor or SIL and not have to deal with any potential real life consequences. let’s all be civil! ive seen way too many vents turn into bash sessions or futile arguments. not cool!

    I chose the top choice.


    I leave often for long periods of time because sometimes the meanness makes me feel worse than I already feel when i come here for whatever issue to get support on.

    One particular thread I really disliked was about “ugly engagement rings” I mean I know, there are some rings out there that were insanity (like the one where the diamond was a piercing) but there were plenty on there that could have easily been someones ring. In fact, one of the rings on it was very very much like my mothers 20th anniversary ring my dad got her.

    There was also a thread I rememeber, a particular bee was having a hard time because she didnt get the ring she had always dreamed of. While she did get a beautiful ring in almost everyones opinion, she was feeling guilty for not liking it as much as she would have the one she wanted.
    The part of that thread I was irritated over was certain bees who made her feel even more guilty, but the BIG whammy was when a bee said something along the lines of “if he really loved you and knew you as well as he should to marry you, he would have known what kind of ring you wanted”
    that was purely mean spirited.


    I know the mods try really hard to keep things tame here, and its not their fault. We are all adults here and should be able to act accordingly. Bees come here for support because many of us are lacking it or are afraid to discuss these issues with those around us.

    I voted for #2: my post count won’t increase by its lonesome! 

    I’ve gotten flamed for some seriously crazy stuff– but I look at the bright side: now when I comment on Yahoo articles my thoughts are more well defined and I have increased my vocabulary/ tolerance level/ thickness of skin drastically thanks to WB!

    But I AM perfect so like, 99.99999% of things don’t apply to me.

    And I’m definitely not judgmental 🙂
