I've sat and watched Ravelry's 'radar' (random posts as they are posted by users on groups) as I knit or wait on the phone on hold. It's obvious they are very selective about what they allow up on radar.

Um, in my opinion, I don't think people feel they always have to state their opinion on everything.

Couldn't resist

I don't think your opinion on Debkcs' opinion is valid


LOL! OK now this post just got silly! What can I say, it's Friday, I'm getting a massage at 4 and this week I REALLY earned it!!!!!!!!!!! If my dog would let me sleep past 8, I'd sleep in tomorrow.

I love my KH family! Hugs to all and a very blessed weekend to everyone!

On the other hand, I started a thread a while back, explaining how I was too shy to friend people, and I ended up with more friends than I could count. So Ravelry isn't all bad.

Um...I've asked myself that in here several times, too. That's how heated discussions usually get started.

Some of this may be interesting and answered a few of my questions, too.

I didn't realize you could put some forums on different "tabs". The "Big 6" cannot be unsubscribed but apparently they can be put on a different tab. I'll have to do just that!

That is why I stopped going into the forums except for a very few. I mostly go into a few forums on small groups I belong to and search for patterns. Don't need negativity when I'm dealing with the thing that relaxes me.

I tend to only frequent the groups on Ravelry that I have added, not the main ones. Even in the smaller groups I find that people are not as friendly or responsive as they are here (although of course there are exceptions.)

I personally would never post anything that I wouldn't say to someone's face, and I pride myself on being kind to others.

I mostly use Ravelry for my own project scrapbook, patterns, and to see what my friends are knitting. For community I would rather come here, to my Facebook where I am only friends with people I know and like, or to my real life friends!

Thanks for the heads up! I have "joined" 3 Rav groups: KH (of course), Knit Picks, and my local rav group but I still have not posted. I basically lurk to see if there is any news and found out we are getting a new LYS.

But you all are so nice and fun that I really don't feel a need to post on their groups!
