Is it just me, or are many bees being passive aggressive or just straight out aggressive on the ring board lately? I haven’t been a member for long, but one of the main reasons that I joined in the first place was because you all were so informative and sweet! C’mon, ladies! Let’s avoid the snarkiness, as wedding bee says so above each post input box…Afterall, we’re here to confide in each other when we have doubts about our rings, and celebrate our engagements and marriages, right? Things have just been on such a personal level lately…

I haven’t noticed anything different. Also, drawing attention to it will only highlight drama if there is any.

I’ve seen a lot of personal attacks, lately. Wasn’t trying to highlight any drama, was just trying to remind everyone of why we’re here. As for it being different, I suppose it might have always been this way and I’m only now realizing it..

Oh, I wouldn’t wanna start anything haha. I lurk a lot throughout the day (since I’m searching for the perfect e-ring) So I see everything.

If you don’t like what you read by a poster and believe it violates TOS, then flag it.
Pretty much the best way to deal with it, in my opinion.

Yeah, I suppose so. Hopefully the people that I saw doing this might see this thread and think twice about their actions.. One can only hope, haha.

Sorry you feel that way
I’ve been here for ages and the Ring Board looks to me like it always does.
There will always be controversy on it to some extent…
Big, Little, “Fake”… these terms always cause a certain amount of drama I find
People get very protective of their perception of what an ERing should be / look like
And others disagree
C’est la vie

If you start a thread to show off your ring and announce how happy you are to be engaged, you will get all compliments (whether genuine or not). If you start a thread asking for opinions on whether it suits you or if you should get it altered or if it’s too big or small you’re going to get a different set of responses.

+1, I agree with this very much. Some people ask for opinions on the size/style of their rings, and some people give their honest opinion (which is what forums are all about) but those opinions don’t always jive with the popular opinion.
