Hot Under the Collar

It is unusual for me to post about this type of thing, but I feel the need tonight, and this is my own personal space and I can do that if I want, right? OK, here goes. It amazes me how quickly religious, political, sexual, and moral debates can get heated to a point that people cannot get along. Maybe I am naive, maybe I'm too nice, or maybe I just like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I never thought I would see the kind of things I have seen coming through some Yahoo Groups recently. I won't mention names, or go into any type of detail because I don't want to offend anyone. But I think everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs, and that is that. Sometimes things just aren't as meant to be as serious as others take them, and it's a shame.
OK, done with my rant now. That's enough of that. Carry on with the craftiness!

Between the fact that they are hot button issues, and the fact that the "anonymity" of the internet lowers inhibitions, it is a dynamic that occurs over and over. When I first saw flame wars in the online knitting community, I was astonished. But after a while...some people just like to stir the waters I guess. Don't let it throw you. Just learn to stay out of the fray. Your wedding blanket looks beautiful. What a fabulous gift!

Good for you for saying that! I agree with you 100%!
