    That is so true! I was a member of another board before I found BDW. First of all people weren't very helpful or supportive of DWs anyway, and secondly it was like people looked for a reason to fight! It was a type-writte Judge Judy!

    I posted something about Jamaica and someone else posted how it was a dangerous 3rd world country and people who visit are exploiting the "natives". It turned into a huge black/white cat fight!

    Needless to say, I quit posting to that group!

      That is the reason why Tammy created this forum. I was on the knot every now and then when I was planning our wedding and most of the time the girls would only talk to whoever was in there click of they were just rude.

      We have a great group of people on here.

        I love the warm fuzzy here. I've never seen anything snarky or mean.

        And everyone is so supportive and excited for everyone else. I just don't get why people would bother to be any other way.

        I love my BDW family!!!! Now if I could just find a way to get you all to my wedding; Oh the fun we'd have!!!!

        Happily married since 2008

          I love BDW too!

          I use to be an active Weight Watchers message board user and boy were they crazy. I was shocked and how people thought they owned the board. Needless to say I stopped participating.

          Everyone here is so awesome and if someone steps out of line "whack" they are banned.

            I totally agree! I love this website! I used to lurk on the knot boards too but I didn't like them at all, I'm so glad I found this site. If you think those boards are bad, you guys should have seen the knot auction on jellyfish.com they had a couple weeks ago...it was downright nasty!

              I like it - I think this should be our new slogan here at BDW.

                I've never been on a forum before, so this was a first ... so I'm spoiled --- everyone has always been SO nice --- friendly and supportive! I loved the idea of sharing great information and great ideas! Over the last few months I get so excited whenever someone hits another big step ... picking invites, their dress, leaving for their big day ... it's like having a bunch of sisters!

                I *heart* BDW

                Speaking of "I *heart*..." - GLENDA, is that a picture of you and your FI?!? Y'all are adorable!!!!
                Ditto - Glenda, your new siggy pic is so cute --- it cracked me up because when I drink I get super-rosy cheeks, too!

                And, Jaime --- I love that picture of you and martin! It was one of my favorites ... It is just so sweet, you can just see how much he loves you!

                  There was actually someone booted off a few months back---I assume it was just because she was being evil. I like how the bad people "vanish"

                    The Knot can be very cruel. I have read posts that actually said they wished another poster dead. It sucks. That forum is not monitored at all so they feel free to say whatever...

                    I heart you people!
