    @busybride44:  exactly, there is a thing called online etiquette as well. It’s almost as if some want to keep poking in order to get a rise out of others.  That or maybe they’re not nice in person either. 🤷 I once came off rude on here, and i apologized after i recognized it LOL sad some cannot take accountability for being rude for the sake of being right. You’re correct on it feeling as if it’s a mean girl, high school attitude. I think some do try and express themselves well and not rude, while there definitely are others that do not. It’s a piss poor look and i think it may discourage people from joining what is supposed to be a fun, wedding related site.

    @mayblueskies:  very well said!! Basically what i tried to say, but in better words. It’s best to just leave the negatives alone and let them think you must be holier than thou and putting on a show rather than keep engaging in something irrelevant, and never ending.

    Anyone who uses the word “catty” forfeits all credibility.

    @street69:  It’s a sexist trope that says more about the person saying it than the person they’re talking about.

    Of course those 3 or 4 people who were catty in their response were out of line.  It’s a shame, but when you post on an internet message board where literally anyone can comment you’re going to get all kinds of responses.  You are assuming that everyone who posts here is an adult and even a woman.  There is no guarantee that your assumption is true. 

    Also, as a point of clairity there really weren’t “so many” mean girl posts.  Again, there were only a couple of OTT responses out of litteraly dozens. Just like several bees who have come rushing to your defense, you seem to be hyper focused on the very small percentage of negative comments. You might find the feedback in this thread more useful if you disregard the obviously unhelpful cattiness and focus instead on the bees who go out of their way to provide HONEST feedback, even if you don’t want to hear it.

    busybride44:  another point of clairty, you didnt ask for opinions on a dress only, you asked for opinions on the appropriateness of a dress in relation to a woman, a mother, in her sixties.  Thats a loaded question.

    OP, you already got plenty of responses and you’re just getting upset with people now. Why don’t you just close the thread?
