@theone99: Did it occur to you that some of those naughty GOMI posters in the WB thread are probably Bees, who post their sarcastic comments over there instead of here? Not people trolling here for fodder. I think they’re doing the Bee a favor by putting their opinions on another site, instead of here.

@the boss of you: true. until someone found it, there was no problem whatsoever.
honestly, i can’t be the only one who has saved crazy posts from weddingbee to show to their husbands. we love the dramz. i’ve just never gone to another website and discussed it with other users. i read all 14+ pages on GOMI and it was incredibly amusing… and yes, some of it unncesessarily mean-spirited. but some of it was also harmless. it’s just unfortunate that the posters being discussed can now see people bad-mouthing them. that can’t feel good 🙁

Hey everyone! I just wanted to pop in with a reminder to tread with caution here — we don’t want to start any cross-website drama. That’s not what Weddingbee is about.
xii. Please do not link to or reference other discussion boards with the intent to disparage their members, content, or staff.
The joy (and pain) of the Internet is that there are all kinds of outlets for expression. We’re never all going to agree, but we can do what we can to try to maintain the kind of Weddingbee community we all enjoy. 🙂
I know a couple of people were asking for a mod to fill in the blanks here. I’m really sorry, but we can’t actually be of any help on this one. 🙁 The boards and the blogs are managed totally separately, and we don’t have any intel as to what’s taking place in the blog world. But it looks like some of our other bloggers have already chimed in a bit, and I hope that helps! 🙂

I really don’t blame people for being snarky about those dresses. They are ridiculous. That said, I only saw them because of the link to the other site on this thread. I never read the bee blogs. If she is going to post really ridiculous dresses like that, she shouldn’t be surprised for people to react in a negative way. I’m sure she wanted to leave by her own accord.

@sheepandbear: Oh good 🙂 I know it is fun to get wrapped up in wedding stuff, but sometimes you need to take a step back and think and smile about what comes after the wedding! The wedding itself is really just a big (or small) party to celebrate the life you’re starting together. And if you have specific ideas or visions for the day, it ultimately doesn’t matter what other people think of them, as long as you and your fiance are comfortable and happy with them.
Sorry to wax philosophic, I just know how easy it is to get so absorbed in wedding things that you start stressing over every. little. thing. Good luck with your planning, lady!

If you really want a “community” find a private site for you and your friends. If you want honesty, sometimes nasty and not asked for, try the internet. Until Weddingbee hides their boards, sites like the ones listed previously will exsist. To think that they wouldn’t or shouldn’t is naive. Any site or blog that has a large following will often have a link to a site that disagrees or makes fun of the posters.
And with google being what it is, everything you post will be with you until you die. No one is truly hidden.

Hi all! I’ve been communicating with Miss Bat over email for the past few days and just wanted to give you an update:
After much consideration, Miss Bat decided to step down as a Bee blogger because of the large time and emotional commitment being a blogging bee entails. She decided she wanted to re-focus on other priorities, especially Batman, her family and friends, her studies, and wedding planning.
She wanted you all to know that she defintiely appreciates all the concern and kind
comments regarding her leaving and wishes you all the best wherever you are in your wedding planning or post-wedding journeys!
We are so bummed to see her step down but it’s been a pleasure to get to know her, and we’ll be keeping in touch 🙂 I’d encourage all of us as supporters to send her a PM – I know she’d appreciate it!

Such a shame, I followed her blog before she came a bee and loved her posts.

Can someone Pm me her blog info too? I don’t know why anyone would feel the need to be mean. 🙁 I didn’t see her post or any of the comments, but it sounds like some were pretty bad.

I would as well like a PM of her blog. As a fellow blogger, this scares me half to death. people can be so mean. I want to lend my support. Weddings are such personal things and it takes a lot of balls to make yours public.

I would love to keep up with her blog too if someone could PM me. I thought her ideas were fun and creative, I was excited to see what else she had imagined and how her day would turn out.

Looks like she closed her website to anyone who is not invited by her to the account. =(

@Mrs. Eagle: I have been WAAAIIIITING for your posts!! I’m from Edmonton, so I’ve been especially looking forward to them since August! I know it’s easier said than done, but let the haters hate, because you have countless supporters who want nothing but the best for you!
Can someone PM me the link to Miss Bat’s blog?
I was letting my blog posts pile up so I had stuff to do while I was on night shift, and then when I went to look for them, they were gone!! This whole situation makes me really sad.
