Since the group was only created today why not give it a chance before getting snarky?

So it is okay to make fun of someone who has created a group for homespun - and it's okay to make fun of a person for only having a single person in their group - but it's uncouth to call rude behavior rude behavior?

pointing out rude behavior should probably be done in a PM.

It's well known that a lot of people do not like Lion Brand Homespun. The creator of the group apparently knows that too, otherwise why create a group stating that there is a place for this yarn?

The screencap is humorous, even if it was short lived. As of right now, the group already has 10 members.

I don't think Chel was purposely making fun of the group's creator, only pointing out the irony of what she saw at the time.

It's often difficult to judge intent through the screen, but I don't believe the person shared the graphic was trying to be "snarky"...just funny and ironic given the Ravelry group was just started today. Just try to keep in mind that most people are not trying to be harmful and it can be so hard to tell what people really mean through typing alone!

I don't want to start anything, I am sure Chel did not mean it in a mean way.

She has consistently been nice on this board, from what I have seen.

I think we can all just try and be nice to the people on this board.
