WeddingBee is a very open, supportive community. There are guidelines in place, and they help keep this community as friendly and wonderful as it’s been for years. I get just as annoyed by trolls and posters who can’t take constructive criticism as anyone, but the mods are VERY good about handling such things when you use the flag system. Namecalling just devalues the nice little society we already have.

@MissCalifornia:  +1

 

The reason is the TOS, and in turn the TOS is the reason this isn’t a desolate wasteland of ridiculous obnoxious behavior. We should each try to put our own best foot forward, and flag those who don’t live up to these terms for the mods to handle instead of stooping to their level.  

 

ETA: There are plenty of other forums out there for people who dislike the TOS on this one. It’s not like these terms are the ones you’re forced to live by. Come here when you’re looking for a civilized interaction, and go to reddit or a certain other wedding forum when you’re not. Problem solved 🙂

There is a difference between name calling and telling it how it is.

Hmm. Right. Okay.

I agree, Weddingbee is rainbows and unicorns. But you won’t get anywhere but the dramaz with this post.

@redness82:  Definitely. I’ve posted a plethora of dissenting comments on topics where I thought the OP or commenters were out of line and never gotten a warning/moderation because I try to ensure my comments are constructive and not name-calling. I did get one today, and that’s because I completely forgot to take a step back and breathe before posting and simply commented “troll” which adds absolutely NOTHING of value to a discussion, troll or not.

@dewingedpixie:  It’s taken you almost 1200 posts to figure out this is the way the Bee works? Huh.

@MissCalifornia:  Haha! I’ve done that too.. but seriously, it was a troll.. and I think I said, “I’m not sure if you are a troll or not…” and then answered the question.  Still got in trouble.  Typically, if I don’t like a post, I won’t write on it.. but I do try to be honest and respectful.  But there is definitely a difference of being a bitch and/or telling it like it is.

@dewingedpixie:  I didn’t say you did.  The next poster said something about name-calling…
