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.
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.
One of many knitting guys.
