I've Had It

Be warned, ranting to follow. There is absolutely no knitting content in today's post. If your delicate sensibilities cannot handle some good ol' bitching, I suggest you turn back now.

There is a certain HUGE knitting related Yahoo group which shall remain nameless. I am sure that you can figure it out if you try. I swear the moderators of said list have it in for me. Every single time I try to post anything, I get a reprimand. "Trim your post." "Add knitting content." etc., etc., etc. Other people can bitch about the new Yahoo message group set up and not a word is said. Let me dare to agree to a post that they let through and woe be unto me. I get a hand slap. I trimmed the pure hell out of my most recent comment and left the paragraph (small paragraph!) that actually lets people know what has been said before and to what I'm addressing my comment, and still the mods attack.

What good is a list where you get posts none of which make any sense because so much of the previous conversation has been cut away? Well, you know, I've had it. They can have their dictatorship board. I don't need it anymore. I'm sure that I can occupy my time with nice boards like Knitty and with actual knitting! It's kind of like I said inZib's blog comments yesterday, if there's something I don't like, I don't have to read it. I don't like the way the Yahoo list in question is dictated, so I'm not going to read it! I'm sure they're crying buckets at the loss of me.

How frustrating. I'm sorry that they have been such butt-heads to you. I don't know about that yahoo group and I think I'll leave it that way.

Hi Donna-

In response to your comment on my blog. Yes, I think it will all blow over. I'm not one to ask people to take sides. In fact when I have a blow-up with someone, I usually don't talk about with mutual friends because I don't want them having to choose sides. So for my part, I am done -- I have learned my lesson.

:)

From what I've read about that group (I joined because a list I enjoy frequently references it, but never post), there's no rhyme or reason to who gets moderated. Some people get nothing but moderation, and others can do no wrong.
