I am totally for a threadjacking policy.

I think it’s a good idea. And agree that it’s becoming more and more frequent.  I like the idea of giving the person a warning first, then if it continues, persue further action.

Sigh. I will, from this day forward, be ignoring the one person that I feel offends a lot of people, and instigates a lot of arguments. i have felt the need to stick up for myself and others, against her rude and insulting remarks. But I see that it has made no difference, and has caused more issues. So I will no longer respond to her. I hope this helps

I like this idea. Especially with the warning aspect as some my not realize they are instigating or “last word-ing”.

Love the idea of warnings and then suspension.  That’s not to say they won’t come back with a new username, but it’s a way to calmn things down around here.

Thanks for trying to do something about it!

Do you have the manpower to do what CNN does? I.e., comments are reviewed by a moderator before getting the “ok” and posting it. So if MissXhoney writes “that is so tacky” a moderator would change it to “that might be considered distasteful”.

Edit: Not every post has to be reviewed but certain words like swear words, tacky, stupid, get filtered out to await approval

I agree! I’m for the threadjacking policy too! I’m thinking that as long as it doesn’t stop very calm debates where the posters are being kind to each other…I think it’s a great idea.

You are so wise.  Is it stupid to consider something like the 3 strikes/you’re out law?

I also agree 100% with the idea of anit thread jacking when it is done in a way that is not helpful.

This wouldn’t apply to innocent threadjacking I assume? Sometimes I don’t have the greatest mental focus and end up thread jacking because my brain likes to jump from connection to connection to connection.


Also, what about a debate section?  Rules should apply to that, but…. perhaps that would help? Some people honestly just enjoy arguing. Then, if someone does start a debate in a non debate thread… it could just be moved by a moderator.

Yes, this sounds wonderful and a great step in the right direction!

I definitely feel like something has to be in place but I would love to hear other Bee’s opinions. I have found lately that some of the threads have gotten very hostile and I feel sorry for the OP because they come back to find some intense word war going on between two or three other posters.

Hopefully people can find ways to disagree wtihout throwing nasty descriptive words around – I think that is what starts a lot of arguments. For example: If I wrote – “I love pink wedding dresses and I can’t wait to wear mine” and a poster wrote back “Pink wedding dresses are so tacky and awful” instead of “It’s not my thing but as long as you love it”. I think that many of the heated posts seem to start off this way and it leaves the OP and those who also like “pink wedding dresses” feeling slightly attacked.I know that we are all adults and should be able to share our opinion but it would be nice to do it in a more friendly manner. Example – my friends say “those jeans dont sit on you right” instead of “holy crap those jeans show your fat hips” lol – bad example but thats just how I see it!


Happy Weddings Everyone!
