@ignatiangal: I’m sorry if you feel like there’s a lot of drama– but this is essentially a post to stir up drama. It’s a flounce post. If you people keep making posts like “okay stop the drama!!” it only fuels the fire. The only solution is to not involve yourself if it upsets you.

@CurlyGirl24: I’m really not trying to be hostile, but I don’t see how you coming on our boards saying they’re “not a place for nice people to hang out,” saying your experience was “just horrible” and “awful,” starting a new thread admonishing the bees and bossing them around, accusing a member of cyber-stalking you, accusing several posters of “ganging up” on you and attacking you, saying we are “awful to one another” etc, etc is any less snarky than some bees disagreeing with your opinions.
Also, you may want to take another look at our community rules:
“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.”
You may regret starting off like this if you decide to stick around. Weddingbee can be a great resource.

Ummm, they are her boards too.
Honestly everyone, I think we need to just chalk this up to a bad day and let the thread die.
NO ONE is being helpful here. Let it go and move on.

@bookworm88: @moonadea: You have both hit the nail on the head. If things werent meant to cause a stir up, then why post a thread so negatively, critizing other users and trying to get moderators involved on a seemingly innocent poster with more posts and a longer history on the bee. I also notice that the OP is keeping well in the background now.
C’mon folks, we are much better than this. We all know this is just a new member who wants to cause a bit of a shake up on opinions, and so far it seems to be working 🙂

I’m not upset, I was trying to let people know that I could see where the OP was coming from and how she was viewing things. And that there HAS been snark on the boards and too her specifically on other threads.

Okay ladies, this thread is getting a little crazy. The OP is getting comments like this on both of her threads now, and it seems like it got a little out of hand. Let’s all step back and let this one die for the sake of all of our sanity. Everyone has their own valid opinions…live and let live, on this one!

What was the point of this post? You’re not gonna get much positive response with a post generalizing that the ladies on this site aren’t being nice and supportive. Also, your
Moderator? Hello?…This is what I was talking about!
MODERATOR! The Flagging feature won’t work on my computer, I get an error.
was absolutely ridiculous. She was not being mean at all, simply explaining why you may have gotten offended and she then proceeded to welcome you to the site.

Not trying to be snarky, but someone saying that they own a DNL and they were not impressed with the quality of the stone or the customer service the company provided to her is not a personal attack on you or your choice of e-ring stone. That being said, someone commenting on 2 of your threads, one started to give a review, and one telling everyone to play nice is not grounds to accuse a poster of cyber stalking you. I did read the threads you started and posted in and it does not look like anyone was cyber stalking you by responding to 2 of the threads you started. I agree that maybe the accusation of you working for the company and spamming the board was unwarranted, but I have not been on the boards long enough to see much of that anyway like other Bees which is probably why they assumed so quickly that your post was a spam like post that they have seen numerous times before.
For the short time I have been a member, and the long time I lurked, I can tell you that this is one of the more supportive wedding boards. But in order to be a part of a board, one must realize that not everyone is going to agree with them, and just because someone else disagrees does not mean they are attacking you.

@ignatiangal: I like a little sass in my posts, because I think people need to be held accountable for what they say on here. The OP could have engaged in a wonderful discussion with someone who disagreed with her, and perhaps they both could have learned something new or learned a little more about this type of stone. I don’t think this is the fault of the other responders, but we may just have to agree to disagree.

Well, shoot. I comment on the same peoples’ threads all the time. I never realized that was cyberstalking. I thought it was commenting on a forum. My apologies to all those who feel I’ve cyberstalked them.
And instead of an SOS in the thread (caps doesn’t really make it more obvious to a mod), either go to support and ask that your thread be closed, or PM a mod. Both or more likely to give you the result you want. Although I can’t see the mods jumping all over GoldfishPie for gently disagreeing with you and then kindly welcoming you to the boards.
Welcome and goodbye. Hope you are able to find a board more suited to your liking. Although I would warn, the Bee is very nice compared to other popular boards out there.

This is clearly not going well. I’m going to close this thread now.
