Is that part of The Knot (aka The Snot)? If so, I’m not surprised!

I can’t even figure out how to read their boards.  Nothing seems to be in order, hard to follow threads, etc!

I used to love babygaga when I was pregnant. It is a really supportive site, much like wedding bee. Check it out!

YES!!! The Bump, The Nest, The Knot… all the same. Mean, snarky, vicious girls. πŸ™ Sad, really.

I think so too! I’m glad I’m not alone. It’s hurtful to constantly read their snarky posts about other people’s weddings!

What’s worse is that the Wedding Channel merged with The Knot, and then it all went to hell…our boards died, mods left, wouldn’t answer repeated questions, websites disappeared…all because they decided TK was more important. πŸ™ So, most of the regulars left.

Wow ladies. I’m surprised by the strength of the reaction and also by the way it’s being handled. Calling people names is… well, exactly what you’re complaining about. And yet.

I love it here at WB. Truly I do. But I also love my local and club board on TK. The ladies there are sweet and supportive and helpful. And I’m sorry to hear you all had a bad experience. But honestly, what would those ladies think of you if they could see this thread? I bet they’d be posting about those b**ches over on the WeddingBee.

I’ve never heard of it – if you’re looking for a nice baby website try gurgle – it is a UK website so you might not find it that useful for medicaly midwifey stuff – but for general support it’s great πŸ˜€

The girls on the birth month board I frequent are all nice.   I think if you go on the TTC board, they are more snarky.

@Encore: The difference is that we are not outright snarky or mean like most of the girls on those sites. If someone asks an honest question, they are (generally) not attacked on WB. TK & co. seems clique-y by comparison. And the mods attack users as well.

Well, I like TK. The boards I usually go to are kinda slow moving especially my local boards. I know people keep saying that TK is snarky etc., sometimes I think WB is too treacly sweet!

I think anything affiliated with theknot.com (theknot, thenest, thebump) ends up having lots of rude women on there.  I wonder why?  Its a shame because the idea of the sites are really nice.

@Statutory Grape: Not everywhere. See my first post for my explanation of the nice and kind women I’ve talked to there.

And right now in this thread, there are a lot of snarky women calling people names. So I don’t see how it’s very different from that which you are saying you don’t like.
