Maybe you should send a copy of this thread to that "community." Maybe they'll see themselves. Probably not.

Just what we'd need, them coming over HERE to bother us. No, as much as I'd like to mock them I don't want to risk KH to do it,

All kidding aside, I've told several friends from another forum, which shall remain nameless, that this is the place to be bc of the atmosphere and a few have come over & joined us. Some have joined through Amy's videos being answers to questions on the forum. I'm just sad about the newbies that join such negative places, bc they then may think that we, as a knitting community, have a large 'negative element'. When nothing could be farther from the truth!! I've found that the majority of the knitters that I have met are the most wonderful people, willing to give you guidance with kindness and to not only share their knowledge of the art, but most importantly, to share their friendship. And that is shown HERE moreso than any other place that I've seen online and I am so happy and PROUD to say that I'm a member and always tell other knitters (ya'll know I've got a big mouth!!) about everyone here and to please come and join.
Look how quickly we are growing...it's because of Amy's hard work and wonderful videos and because once here, everyone feels welcome and that's because of all of YOU and the warmth that is shown to each and every new member.

And these are just the people who are highly visible! I'm sure everybody on the board has something to contribute, in some way or another.

Anyway, the point is that we have a really fabulous community here and we all deserve a guilt-free treat!
...
Like some more Noro. Hmm, wonder if I can find it on sale anywhere...*wanders away, muttering about yarn*

So true! One person's question gets everyone thinking and learning--it's not just the answers that count, by any means. Even though I answer a lot, I've become a much better knitter for it because I have to think about things from a different perspective and order things in my mind in such a way to be able to communicate them.

NOW--do I get to buy more yummy yarn? Huh?

I'd have a serious talk with my checkbook if I were you. Something along the lines of "Do you feel overused? Do you need a rest?" same with any of your credit cards. "Are you not having enough time to cool down? Do you need to be put away for a bit?"

They answered me. "Didn't you just buy a new car? Don't you have to start making car payments now? Won't your insurance go up?"
