Actually, I just went back and read the post, and everyone was super helpful until they started suspecting your post was a prank/joke, as many darma-filled posts by brand new users are. If anyone was being particularly mean/violating the Terms of Service, the thread would have been closed.

My annoyance with this website is that none of these unproductive and inappropriate responses were flagged or deleted or whatever, when my innocent and normal one was.

There is a flag button under every post. You have had the option to click on those disgusting and offensive posts if you wanted to. What’s offensive to some may not be offensive to others, and as long as it fits within the guildines and rules of Wedding Bee, it can be said. I haven’t been following your posts, so I don’t know what you said that got removed, but sorry you have such a poor point of view of Wedding Bee.

It’s just common etiquette to update after lots of people take time to help you with your problem. Not just on this board, but most boards with regular posters, from what I’ve seen.

The other bees asked for an update presumably because they were curious. If you didn’t want the curiosity to be present, you didn’t have to post the topic. They all put in their opinions and tried to help, and obviously when they didn’t get an update, they were wondering what had happened. Same thing happened here with me once too. I was surprised nonetheless to get comments asking where my update was, but it wasn’t off-putting or rude to me. Some were jokingly funny, and if it was in poor taste, it didn’t seem like it. 

I’m sorry you have a negative view of this community but that’s what it is. A community. We hear what everyone has to say and we usually wait for a happy ending.

So you started a thread looking for opinions and then were offended when people became invested or just plain curious and asked for an update? Ooooook.

I’ve gotten flagged for some things I really did not think were offensive.


The first lesson you need to learn about the Bee is most of us are VERYYYYYYYYY SENSITIVE about every comment!!

I think it’s just as Crayfish said. They were really interested in your situation, took the time to write out responses, and wanted to hear how it all worked out for you. It’s not unheard of that people write fake posts here, and I don’t think anyone meant to offend you. Probably just passing the time by theorizing what may have happened.

I don’t think their responses would have caused the thread to close since it was a legitimate situation and awaiting an update.

And yeah, some of us are addicted. >> I hope you have a better time on the Bee moving forward. Maybe you can get addicted, too. 😉

lol I went to look at your thread and it is kinda funny how people were gossipping.  I don’t think I’ve seen something like that before.  Asking for an update is one thing calling OP a fake is another.

I think when people take the time to answer a question for you, they expect you to take the time to read it and update everyone.
