    Actually, I believe that Dwest moved out and they are not reconciling.  I believe that she called it off for good. 

    And thanks for owning up to it NTOD.  Me and my honesty is best policy appreciate it.

    i don't remember all the details from dani's posts, but i remember it was drama central...  mostly because she took offense to everything?  or am i way off...?  i could take the time to read the link i posted but...  i'm hungry and i'm going to go scrounge for food instead.

    EDIT:  i am pretty sad about what happened with DWest.  i had actually been wondering about that recently, so thank you for filling us in.

    Hmm, yeah I kinda forgot about the speediness of Danie getting with another guy after having her baby. That is a little...strange. And she had some of the most random posts, it's true. I guess I just felt kinda bad for her b/c it seemed like people were ganging up and making fun of her. Blunt advice and honest opinions are okay, but I think things were getting almost malicious there, and it rubbed me the wrong way.

    that is very true.  i'm glad you reminded me of it.  now that i think back on it, i do recall things getting out of hand.  i was still quite the newb (still am, i guess) and i remember thinking, "dear god...  i'm NEVER posting ANYTHING in this crazy place!"

    obviously...  that didn't happen.

    I kind of forgot about her.

    Who remembers the Cate's BF AE debacle? Some people were really offended. I was entertained (yes, I'm sick that way).

    That sucks about DWest. I emailed her awhile ago and didn't hear back, I wondered what had happened. :(

    No problem, Mutley, I knew you were referring to me and I know I have a lot of "drama" sometimes but I like to think I don't cause any around here (minus 1 or 2 posts months ago). I appreciate the honest, is sometimes harsh, advice that I have gotten here. It's helped a lot.

    can anyone tell me where the "special snowflake" term actually came from?  i think it was from a real poster, right?  just wondering...

    Okay, maybe I have a really thick skin, but honestly? I just read the infamous "Cate BF's" thread and I don't see why everyone took the abortion comment so seriously. It's not like he made a long elaborate joke about dead fetuses.
  • edited December 2011
    Don't you girls remember of a girl (not sure what's her name) who asked whether to get a dress even though she said she wasn't engaged and wouldn't be married until three years later and then some of you found out she was on other boards claiming she was engaged and asking about venues? How could you ever forget????

    Yeah, I remember the "Poor Cate" thread really well. When I was really only lurking.

    I was going to bring up the 17 year old who had her BF come on to defend her. It went on for pages. Kaleigh or something? She kept insisting she really was a special snowflake, and it was around then that someone brought up that identical snowflakes actually exist.

    Jacks drove me crazy. I can't remember exactly what it was that was posted, but there are very few posters on TK that I've just written off entirely.

    OMG, it's so funny to read back to the "Poor Cate" thread and think about how much has changed since then.  As GPB said, back then she and I had at it.  Now we're really good friends.  To be fair, I still don't get what the big effing deal was about that thread.  I felt bad that Cate (who according to most people on here is very intelligent and gives good advice) was getting reamed on here over her pre-engagement planning.  While I never once stated that her pre-engagement planning was NOT BSC, I said I felt bad for people ripping her to shreds over such a common NEY faux pas.  I think that thread just separated me out as someone that would not follow crowd mentality.

    As for a memorable poster, I'd go with that gem on JE & P who received a 2 carat heart shaped diamond from her FI and then told other posters who disagreed with her about anything that they got their rings from Walmart.  Her name escapes me.
