I had belonged to a knitting list for several years until today. I left.
A couple of years back there was some real nastiness on the group and much of it aimed at me by some really nasty pieces or work. I rode it out, didn’t leave, and the list once again became pleasant to be a part of.
Now without any warning we have a new owner who describes herself as ‘list mom’ which is awful in itself, and who is now moderating everyone and censoring posts! I enquired as to what was going on and had a curt non explanation in response.
The list was asked recently if we wanted the group to continue and most of us did. A poll was set up and the majority wanted the list left as it is.
Now it is moderated and edited!
I have started an alternative for those interested. This is NOT intended to be a call to leave the other group!
My usual group rules apply: NO ABUSIVE mails will be tolerated. Other than that no one will be edited or moderated once they are known to be genuine posters, not a spammer.
EDIT: I AM APPALLED TO DSICOVER THAT THE ‘NEW’ OWNER OF THE GROUP IS AN ALIAS BEING USED BY A ‘FRIEND’ WHO HAS DECIVED US ALL!!!!!
