|bobandiarepals||01:38 pm - Introduction|
HI! I'm Dawn. I live in Michigan. I'm 20 years old and I've been crocheting for a year! Right now I'm making a granny square purse and soon I will be making my first sweater, hopefully.
I don't use patterns, just my imagination.
um.... DID YOU HAPPEN TO READ THE USER INFO FOR THIS COMMUNITY?
you are EXACTLY the sort of person that we feature here all the time...
well if she isn't, she's not very funny
the user info for the community doesn't actually say very much. at least nothing that i read as directly relating to her - unless you automatically assume that whatever she has been crocheting is ugly.
i like a good snark, but this seemed pointlessly hostile.
here's pointlessly hostile:
I'm the mod and this is a SNARK COMMUNITY. IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE HEAT, GET OUT OF *MY* KITCHEN.
I read the User info and I couldn't conclude much. I thought it was for crocheters who disliked all those granny sweaters and ugly yarns. I thought it was a place to complain about patterns that didn't work, and to look at horrible designs with a snicker.
primarily, this is a community for humor about crochet. The community information makes it clear that there are 2 rules: be funny, and don't lock your post.
I fail to see the funny in your post. Even as satire, it falls completely flat. Playing a character, as opposed to linking to ACTUAL posts/photos/patterns that have earned a snark... well...
Introduction posts are annoying. Faux introduction posts intended as, what? parody?, need quite a bit more oomph than you offered.
and before you cry a river, you aren't the first person to get called out for a lack of haha. After a few weeks of people posting pics of freeform and comparing it to vomit, I had to call a ceasefire unless people could come up with something original.
Okay. I see. It WAS a serious introduction. I didn't know that those were not really part of the community.
snark is not supposed to be raving bitch and i didn't know community meant a place where no one can disagree with the great eris devotee, but have fun continuing to dictate your little Animal Farm
oh you can disagree - but there is no rule about being friendly. on purpose.
you can turn that into tyranny, if you like, but that's lame. you can say anything to me that you like, as long as you don't act like a fucking whiner.
i wasn't whining. i don't like jumping down the throat of new blood before there's even a project to judge.
calling my initial comment pointlessly hostile is a really low bar for what is considered hostility. hence my calling you a whiner.
and new blood? who the fuck are you that you get to tell anyone else in this community how to treat "new blood"? are you a mod? no. then claiming someone else is being too harsh isn't in your job description.
What's that? It's kind of hard to hear you from on top of your high horse.
But don't worry, I think I get the gist. How dare I try to defend someone for making a friendly introduction post. If you don't want those types of things then you should say so in the community info. How was she supposed to know? You say she was wrong, so she MUST be wrong. You say I've been whining so I must have been.
You might also want to add this disclaimer: Beware all who enter here! Josie is MOD but she spells it with a G so don't you dare try to disagree.
you are ridiculous. I suppose the only option I had to avoid your assertion that I'm a meaniepoopoohead would be to agree with you... right?
the point is - I do agree. I started this community for the point of being able to be a meaniepoopoohead whenever the hell I wanted, and those who can handle that sort of atmosphere are welcome to play along.
you are basically trying to police a snark community and DUH that makes you a BUZZKILL. unless, of course, I get to keep taking shots at you. then it's kinda fun, actually.
Wow you are a real fucking bitch. Actually she was funny and you were not. All you did was prove what a jackass you are. What a nice little world you live in as Queen of the Bitch Jackass'. I can't even imagine why in the hell anyone would want to be in this community. Go you
where was she funny again? all she tried to do was correct me, and she wasn't funny about it at all.
AND the OP admitted she was SERIOUS with her post.
If you think that stuff isn't snarkable, then you and I live in different worlds. I like mine, and I am glad you aren't in it.
oh sorry - I just took a look at your user info... wiccancrafts?!
ROFLMAO. Do you knit your own tampons so you can make menstrual tea?
cuz here's the difference - I'VE FOLLOWED THE MAIN RULE: BEING FUNNY.
if you had even attempted to insult me with humor, I wouldn't've called you a whiner. but you are just another asshat.
i'm not trying to police you. i didn't try to make demands that you put on a happy face and be Miss Mary Sunshine. if i can't say that i think something is wrong then what's the point of the whole snarky deal? we're allowed to make comments about projects, or against kim what's her name at interweave, but not to you?
did I ban you from commenting to me? did I delete your comments? did I tell you to not make comments?
I just disagreed with you and told you where to get off.
um.... DID YOU HAPPEN TO READ WHAT SHE SAID?
you are EXACTLY the sort of person that we make fun of on our own secret intertubes all the time...
