I thought shutting down Remnents for a few days was a great idea, whether it improves things is yet to be seen.
I have stayed with "knitting" threads and done my best to stay away from controversial subjects and general posts but it's like an auto accident, sometimes you just can't tear your eyes from it!!
I originally thought the "tone" on Ravelry was because of the HUGE volume of people but if you skim through the controversial posts you'll find many of the same posters time and again becoming embroiled in controversial and unkind comments.
So I'm trying to knit more, read less and just WALK AWAY from stupid comments.
GinnyG on Ravelry, I'd LOVE to be in your "friends"
