I usually only read the General, How to, pattern and sometimes the KAL forums so I missed it. And I don't look at every thread in those...

An inflammatory thread on a Knitting Forum???

What ever did I miss???

Did someone make derogatory comments about using acrylics or mention crochet?

We really do need an OT Forum, don't we?

Gosh, I miss all the fun around here!

Had to be the "c" word. That'd pull 10 on MY fire-meter.

I suspect I know which one it was and although the initial posts were fine I believed it would wind up drawing adverse views which then would be pounced on.

These issues are one reason I voted "no" to an OT forum. People talk about self restraint but this behaviour isn't clear cut and it isn't JUST a matter of ensuring no swear words etc are posted. It's more complex when topics home in on a person's religious or values systems etc.

In ONE way I guess pushing that kind of activity into a discrete forum alleviates issues in the knitting ones IF people stick to that.

Anyway, all these things take mod time and I appreciate - as all do I believe - the time devoted.

I can give you the name of the thread, and, like Susan said, the first few posts were fine, but then it took a turn for the worse.

Thread name: "Happy Gay Day!"

I don't mean to offend anyone by posting that name, and that is the main reason I didn't post to it. This is also why I voted no to an OT forum.

I saw that thread but didn't read it, as it didn't seem to be of interest to me. I guess it's always best to stay away from "hot bottom" issues- especially in this type of setting.

I stay out of those conversations and just keep...

Exactly, that's what I do. Although I'm sure the person who started that thread had perfectly good intentions, it might have been controversial to some members, and we've just all learned a lesson from this.
