Sorry if I offended you all
Posted: Apr 17, 2006 6:55 PM

Sorry If I offended you all, but you didn't have to get all defensive and self-righteous on me, either. (See posts- Can't Excerise anymore-So Stressed and Lace Bolero)I'm a newcomer to the boards, how about a little more welcome? I don't have anything against the name Sophie, I'm not immature, but I've read alot of her posts and she seems like a totaly spoiled brat with Daddy's money. She's only 24, she's a model, she's having 3 showers and her dream fairy-tale wedding, how much more bratty can you get? She seems obssessed with herself and her "perfect life." Well, Sophie, I know you may find this hard to beleive, but I like my life just fine thanks.

As for pwm, there's no need to be sarcastic.

C'mon, you guys, you might not have to gut to SAY this, but I'm sure you're all thinking it. Let's just admit it and Sophie can go brag elsewhere.

Hi Aly -- welcome to the board. I have read your previous posts, and I think what's setting people off is your negativity. We're all looking for advice, emotional support, and constructive criticism, and if that's what you have to offer then let's hear it! No personal attacks, please.

Well said laidback. I think you just got off on the wrong foot. No harm done, welcome to the boards!

First you apologize and then your next post is again immature?

Ummmm, yeah, BridesMom? Explain to me in which way my post was immature. I see laidbackbride and LL agree with me, and who doesn't?

Rich girls just really irritate me. I'm just making a wild guess here, but do any of you know if Sophie is blonde?

I'm red-headed and happy with it, thanks!

It is my opinion that personal attacks on a message board are immature. If you don't like what you're reading move on.

Did they really agree? Seems they said something about negativity and personal attacks. Oh yes and getting off on the wrong foot. Doesn't seem like they agreed. 

I am a blonde so there is an attack on me......more immaturity.

Um, I don't agree with you about Sophie and never said as much.

At this point I have to question if you're really a bride-to-be and not someone with a personal ax to grind trying to punk the boards (and if this is the case, you haven't been particularly subtle about it). Your posts are almost too rude to be taken seriously and your obsession with trashing Sophie is wild and bizarre.

Given that you have repeatedly shown yourself incapable of respecting this community, I suggest you dump your trash elsewhere.

I seriously doubt you are indeed sorry.  I honestly believe that you are a bored person with nothing better to do than drum up some drama on bridal board.

Who cares how much money Sophie has?  What's this strange obsession you have with her?  You, my dear, are the one with the problem.

You have failed to say ONE nice thing since coming here.  Why don't you try this, re-register with a new name and come back and start over, this time, try being nice.

oh my god, Aly, I think your comments are the meanest I have ever read! What is your deal?! Have you no shred of empathy or moral decency?! I for one will not welcome such a hater to these boards designed for smart, compassionate, decent people who come here to share their wedding plans and get advice on their lives. If you must stay and post, keep your bitter, spiteful comments out of here!  I mean, would you actually say those things to Sophie's face if you met her in person? How did you get so hateful??

"how about a little more welcome?"

*********************

A LITTLE MORE WELCOME!?!?  This was your very first post on these boards:

**********************

"OMG, you total freak. What is wrong with you? I'm new here, but I know enough to know that this is a bridal site, not some weird anorexic campaign. Go and get a life, and come back when you're normal. Some of us have weddings to plan."

***********************

And this was your second post:

***********************

"God, it's only my first post, and already you're being mean and sarcastic? Maybe you're all friends with this freak "Sophie" (what a stupid name , BTW, it's so old-fashioned) but I'm not and I'm not on here to make friends, though I'm not on here to make enemies. Too bad I've already made one in you...."

************************

And this was posted by YOU after you ATTEMPTED to say sorry:

************************

"but you shouldn't flirt with every guy you see. What a slut."

************************

If you want more of a welcome then you better start acting WORTHY of one!  But at this point you won't be getting one from me.

Aly, all I said was that I thought your post to Sophie was out of line, and that if all you want is to talk weddings then don't read posts with other subject lines.  I have no problem with you what so ever, I was just pointing out your post was not needed.  You, however, seem to pick people at random to dislike, which is not healthy.

Well, my theory is that Aly is some high schooler with nothing better to do...honestly...adults don't act that way, do they?

Okay, you little charm-school dropout, I'm going to preface this with the statement that I agree with whoever said you're probably a 14 year old high school kid. HOWEVER, just in case you aren't, let me say this:

You are way out of line. If you have inadequacy issues about your life, status, haircolor, or wedding, keep them to yourself. Your statements are so obviously not anything but belligerence to cover your insecurity. You hate rich girls? Really? How many do you know? Every girl with money is not Paris Hilton. There are plenty of snotty rich girls, just like you've amply demonstrated that there are plenty of snotty not-so-rich girls. There are also many people with more money than you who are also great people. It's disgusting to attribute behaviors and prejudices to others because of your own preconceived notions. Attitudes like yours stem from the unspoken fear that these "rich" people will look down on you. But you have no right to assume they will, and by assuming they're all bitches, you've committed the very same sin.

Secondly, I'm a hairdresser, and the color of a woman's hair has NOTHING to do with her character. I'm also a redhead, but you're embarrassing me! In fact, the "Park Avenue Princess" type you're so resentful of is far more likely to be a brunette than a blonde. The only thing a woman's haircolor is a reliable indicator of is how OTHER people (men, idiots like you) will perceive her. Wouldn't it be nice if in the 21st century we WOMEN could stop judging and classifying each other on such superficial criteria?

Third, I'm probably more wealthy than a lot of the people on these boards, and I'm having the whole dream fairy tale wedding. So you can hate me too. But my point is that I don't think that makes me better than anyone here. Everyone here is a valuable individual with dreams, hopes, and strength that deserves respect. We are all here for support, creative ideas, and to have the most beautiful, meaningful weddings we can...it doesn't matter if that wedding costs $200k or $5k. What is important is that the wedding represents the best of the participants and is full of love and truth. SO please, take your aggro inferiority complex SOMEWHERE ELSE.

What a laugh! I work with 14 yr olds every day and they are more mature than this! Every board needs or at least has one of these types so I guess Aly is it. If you are really looking for a welcome Aly, how can we help you? What needs do you have? What are your questions? I'm only having two showers thrown for me as far as I know so I guess I can help and I'm not blonde either. Whew! (sarcasm intended).
