I wouldn’t; this is an online forum. There are for sure going to be differences in opinions and disagreements. What bothers me are the bees that post asking for advice and when others post another perspective they can’t take it. Why bother posting in an online forum to begin with??

Hmm. Sometimes I debate on leaving because I don’t think what I say really carries much weight on here. As in, there’s no point in me being here. I’ll stay away a week or so at a time, and that usually helps.

That being said, nothing someone could say to me would make me choose to leave. I’m not easily offended.

@Lemma:  I think so.  I am a bit scared to hear.  I am kind of bracing myself here since I have had several people tell me in no uncertain terms how stupid/elitist/clueless/etc I am, but go ahead. 🙂

@MrsFuzzyFace:  Well, I can only speak for myself and I may be remembering the wrong person, so sorry if I’m way off base!

EDIT: I’m an idiot and was thinking about a different bee for this bit.

The one thing I do remember was a thread where you said you were angry at somebody trying to commit suicide. I think that came off as insensitive to a lot of people because it seemed to focus only on yourself and not on the pain that drove that person to suicide. Also, on a personal note, I sent you a PM with stuff in it that was hard for me to share and you never responded. Not a huge deal, but it did hurt my feelings a little.

I hope this helps. It really is intended to help and not as a criticism. 

For what it’s worth, I think I know why people don’t like me: I’m willing to say things like the above! Tongue Out

@Lemma:  I think you have me mixed up with someone else with the extreme religous stuff.  I am a Chrstian but not really a in your face about it kind of girl.

I see what you are saying about the suicide attempt thread.  It was my sister in law and I was mostly upset that she has provided a horribe and unstable environment for her children since they were born.  She is a prescription addict and regularly makes half hearted attempts because the psych ward gives her the drugs she wants.  The poor kids have picked up the tab for all of it.  I do agree that I came off insensitive in that thread.  I was just simply at a loss and feeling for the kids.  You make a good point.

I am sorry that I didn’t answer your PM.  I don’t even remember getting it.  I will go back and look for it and read it now.  That is typically not my style.  I believe that if someone cares enough to reach out, you should at least respond.  Please accept my sincere apology.

@MrsFuzzyFace:  Ok, sorry for mixing you up then. I guess that part wasn’t very helpful!

Thank you for explaining about your sister in law. I think you might have been too upset at the time for that to come across clearly, so it got messed up. 

Don’t worry about the PM. It mattered at the time but that was a very long time ago.

@HisIrishPrincess:  I sometimes wish that there were no Not Wedding Related topics to make it a nice experience for everyone.

That wouldn’t help. A lot of wedding-related topics get pretty heated. Just within the past few weeks there was a debate about trash the dress photoshoots that got pretty nasty.

I left the Bee for a while because I felt like I was just torturing myself during the waiting. I resurfaced once we set a timeline. I’ve been offended here, I guess… I just try to argue my point in a civil manner, and if it gets too frustrating I exit the thread and move on. No big deal. I’d probably leave if several posters were ganging up on me with personal attacks and I felt unsafe here, which I really don’t see happening. I’d obviously leave if I got banned, but I always try to watch what I say and how it will come across.

I went on TK at first but that is a hateful place. People were so rude!  I like WB because it seems more inclusive and wedding centered. I stay off most Not Wedding Related things because it just seems like a little too much Too Much Information or unnecessary drama. I also feel ancient compared to a lot of ppl on here. Wonder what the average age is?
