Shame you have to post about this, though I don’t see any of it. 😉

Can you add a bit about people sending harassing PMs? That is THE most annoying thing on the bee. I don’t get the whole “take it to the PM” thing. If I don’t like what someone is saying to me I don’t send them malicious private messages. I do it publicly, because I have nothing to hide. The whole you-can’t-flame-people-on-the-boards-but-you-can-do-it-privately thing is bogus.

If anyone is sending anyone harrassing PMs, please notify a Hostess or a Mod.  We do not have the ability to view PMs so we don’t know that this is happening unless someone tells us.

Thanks for posting this.  It was getting quite annoying.

ETA: I’m not trying to start drama or anything like that, but everyone has always complained about The Knot and the way posters respond to certain threads.  Are we not getting that way too?  It’s a shame to see.  I love coming on here, but as of lately it’s just been too ridiculous. I hope we can just be there for one another.  If you don’t like something or agree, then move on.  It’ll be alright.

Is there a list of who the Hostess/Mods are? I’ve been around here for months and I’ve seen I think two hostess tags and have no idea who mods are. So when I received a seriously nasty PM, I would have reported it, if I knew who to report it to.

It’s sad that this needed to be said, but it’s true.  Thanks for posting.
