I think it’s because they don’t realize that there are people behind the names as anyone and everyone joins.

That’s why people call it The Snot.

oh. my. gosh. I started on the knot and HOLY COW! they are so harsh. I can’t even express how much i appreciate the kindness of the bee. even criticism is given with such respect. I haven’t been on in weeks! it’s so much happier here 🙂  unfortunately, it’ so happy its ADDICTING.

You know, I have never really seen people be outright mean there. I must just look in the wrong threads. I do notice that they tend to be a lot more blunt that here in the hive.

The knot is full of sheeple brides who are just concerned with the things that you MUST DO OR YOUR WEDDING WILL BE RUINED OMGLOL!1!!!1

It’s hard to find anyone with a personality or an idea that didn’t come off a knot checklist. Thank God for you Bees with your creativity and kindness!! Laughing

I used to be on the Knot boards and I asked something about my shower and I was attacked and had to leave. On the Bee I feel that even if someone doesn’t agree with something I am doing for my wedding they still repect it. I also love that we talk about everything even non wedding related.

@Zippylef – from what I hear it is more civil in the local boards but I have seen more than bluntness in the global board.

If some members were harrassing another and the harrassed responds back, like “you are such mean people”, sometimes you will see that response being used as other members signatures including the name of the “victim”.

This isn’t too bad but the OP had made a grammar mistake and of course the responder had to pick it out…

Poster – “My fiance and my parents are seperated”

Responder –  “It’s amazing what saying “fiance’s” would have done for reading comprehension. “

Totally irrelevant to the post but she just had to point that out.
