@runnerbeez: I had the exact same thoughts. JoesWifey has always been super nice, and I feel that in over 2000 posts, she has never come off as anything less than sincere.

All she did was state her opinion on the matter, and I think she did so quite reasonably and in good faith.

I feel dirty. It makes me wonder when I read a post if I should doubt if it’s real ( and that person is in real pain and needs our support) or just too over the top and whether or not I should answer. Are ‘they’ just making stuff up just to watch us relpy?

@JoesWifey writes a reponse to the fact that she is on the snarky board, which she has every right to do. But now I wonder if her post, “No longer so sure that we should have gotten married… advice?” is real. Did I waste my time and effort answering a made up scenario?

@jayce: I agree completely. Her response wasn’t heated or snarky in the least bit. She explained her point of view well. I am not saying she is right, but I don’t agree with blocking her. I completely understand the need to keep it tempered on this subject, but I am a little bothered by the fact that her post was immedietely deleted, as I have seen a few other times in this thread.

@KoiKove: regarding JoesWifey’s post about should she have gotten married… I have been around the boards for a very long time so I have formed relationships with some of the people here. From everything I know, that post was real. It was an unfortunate situation, but it was not made up. I hope this whole thing doesn’t discourage you from responding to people looking for advice on real problems.

I don’t blame Mr. Bee for deleting the post as soon as it came up and consulting with the mod team.  This is a crazy situation and I think the bee team is trying to do the best they can not to shake up the hive.

Lets face it girls,  they manage a website full of the women (and a few men) who are in some of the most stressful times of their life (waiting for a proposal, planning a wedding and for some having children) I’m not sure what I would do if I was in Mr. Bees shoes or any of the mods for that matter but I think given how grey this situation is they are trying their best.

 

 

Now cant we all get along?  I’m going to go put on my rose colored glasses now.

@KoiKove: I don’t think the girls on the snark board post here with fake threads, I think they just post on the other board because they feel like they can’t openly say what they feel here.

This is a crazy post, and I don’t really know how I feel about it. I hate the fake posts, but I do think people get banned  and warned too easily.

@arenyth: I agree with you. I have read some of the posts on the other board, and while some of them can be malicious, others are legitimate in just needing to vent on the some of the stupid things they read on WB. I think the stalking and screwing with polls is juvenille and ricidulous, but as far as the other bees who just go there to vent, I can’t say I harbor any feelings against them.

But I feel for the moderators, it can’t be easy weeding between the two types.

I guess I just don’t get the point of “venting” about what other posters are doing on a seperate board. If your online forum activities are bothering you to the point of creating seperate boards and alias for the pure purpose of venting about it, well maybe it’s time to get out into the real world and have some real life drama to vent about.

I just don’t understand needing to vent about things strangers write on the internet. Who really cares?!!

@panterapeach: I’m with you!

Folks can write on whatever website they choose, and that’s not a problem to me. There’s no reason the snark should leak back over here, though, and I think that’s an important distinction to make–that’s what the mods seem to be dealing with.

I understand why they were banned. It’s just like venting on FB about your employer. If word gets back, or if somebody takes a screen shot of what you said and anonymously sends it into your employer, you could end up out of a job. I get that some of the posters to the other site were just venting and saying things they feel they can’t say on this site. However, in doing that, they accepted the risk that if found out, there would be some consequences. It kind of is what it is…

Arenyth- I totally agree with you.  There are a whole lot of times that I want to say something, and its not to be snarky just because, but there’s a line and a very fine line at that so most times, I don’t post.  Do I give my opinion and possibly violate TOS or do I keep my mouth shut while everyone agrees with the OP while it’s so blaringly obvious that it is is SO wrong?  Everyone complains about the knot or the nest and how mean they are but sometimes it’s not always puppies and rainbows and it’s great to be given it to you straight.  Sure you can tone your response down but again, TOS and you can’t always post what you want to say.  

I have the same worry as mmsva, not about Joeyswife thread in particular, but it makes me wonder if my time has been wasted.  I’ve even avoided certain threads because of this.

@Bostongrl25: Ditto! If I get annoyed by someone, I just stop reading their posts. I don’t go on another board to “vent” about how much I don’t like them!
