  I feel like I’ve been seeing a pick up on posts that could be a bit snarky from members who do not have a lot of posts. Maybe this is just me, but I feel like it’s picking up again.

Interesting…

Haven’t some of the OP’s in those threads claimed to be “Bees” going ” Anonymous”. They would have to know enough of how the WB culture works to talk with that kind of finesse.

Yep! I was just telling Fiance about the post from the guy with the “demure” fiancee who just happened to hook up with his college buddy. That’s a pretty big coincidence if you ask me. Not impossible, but very unlikely. I told Fiance it was probably a troll!

That’s an interesting possibility. I’d be curious to know if it was the same person.

How very Sherlockian of you Starbuck, now I’m curious too! I know that sometimes forums go troll other forums as a lark too, but that’s usually way more obvious.

  Plus, you could see other posts where other bees have said they’re going incognito. Hmm…makes you think!

I don’t know if any of it’s real, but these stories would certainly make for some good tv!

But is it any different for the the other repetative newbee posts? I mean there have been a rash of these in other areas as well of late- kids/no kids, showers, BM’s, strippers etc

I think it is just coincidence or maybe sprigtime makes people confess and want to start again- the whole new life thing!

@starbuck:  Interesting observations.

I myself am pretty new around WBee, so I don’t know a lot about what to expect here… I certainly commented on two of those topics…

And did find them to be both very anti-female (the latest one says he’s a guy, the first one I read was a girl who’s guy wanted to know ALL her sexual past)

Now that you’ve created this topic, and brought up the similarities… etc. I can see how this could be someone wanting to stir up crap here on WBee.

As someone who knows there way around the Internet pretty good (been on here since it was a new thing back in the early 1990s) I thought I considered a lot of the possibilties…

Such as CITYGUY being a passive aggressive male… wanting his Girlfriend to find his topic.  BUT, his being an outright Troll… or that all the posts would be from the same Poster (Troll) wasn’t something I thought of right away.

Good call IMO… agree that the Mods should certainly look into this.

I think we can all agree that Weddingbee goes through cycles of happy times, as well as times when we’re stressed out and we tend to take it out on each other. It’s the same way in our day to day lives. However, threads like these never tend to go well, and drawing attention to the drama typically doesn’t help to calm the waters.

If you happen to see drama or violations of the TOS, please flag it for the moderators to review, and click away to another thread rather than getting wrapped up in it yourself. The drama has nowhere to go if you don’t feed it!

Or better yet, start a positive thread to help change the mood on the boards! We all love Weddingbee because of what a supportive and encouraging place this is, so let’s work together to balance out the negative when we see it.

With that being said, I’m going to close this thread so we can focus on the fabulous upcoming weddings and enjoy some awesome recaps. 🙂
