I was reading your post and don't they have a setting that if you are
not a member that you can't post button. Or something like that
It is to bad that some people are like that.

That's exactly what that type wants, so DON'T give them the satisfaction!

Whenever I was 19 and was first on the internet I used to take things like that to heart all the time and get really upset, but now I shrug it off, some people have no lives!

I would've replied back with many obviously intentional errors.
But telling them to knit more and troll less was good.

I don't know if ya'll have been back to Ravelry since this thread was started, but the creators of Raverly must have noticed the nastiness as well, because they closed down the forum that seemed to be a magnet for all this negativity. They've reopened it with new rules, and it seem much more pleasant.

Yes I noticed. They are finally moderating.

The saddest thing is that they have to. Why can't grown up, adult people play nice?

I really don't see the level of snarkiness that is Ravelry on other forums. I really don't.

I've noticed the snark too, as well as the moderation attempts. I follow the advice my mother gave me when I was little: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!
