BLOGWORTHY!!!

Pardon my french but What the fuck!? I know that it has been months since I have last blogged...with work, kids, knitting, spinning and all that jazz I keep myself pretty darn busy. A lot has happened around these parts since October. And most of my extra time is spent on the Internet drooling over all your lovely knitting and spinning projects on Ravelry. Well as of Yesterday I have been BANNED. I say what the fuck again. My only guess is that I got suspended by being associated with my sister, who,from what I understand has been banned too for being on some political forums. I on the other hand have NEVER talked politics online. Especially on Ravelry. I really don't like to talk politics much at all. I figure between politics and religion those can be some pretty touchy subjects. I choose to stay away from those sites/forums all together.
I was logging on to my ravelry page yesterday and I got on fine. Then my sister said that should couldn't get on and didn't know if there was something wrong with her Internet, so I tried to log in as her from my computer. I got a message saying that she was suspended until further notice. Needless to say she was pretty mad and could only assume that it was because she belonged to some republican group that had been banned or something like that. Then I got off with the phone with her and tried to log back in to my account and then I was banned. I sent an email to ravelry@legal.com hopefully this debacle is fixed by Monday. I have just been starting to fill better after my surgery that I had on Tuesday and I would really love to update my projects and see what all my rav friends have been up too. I just can't believe that I have been banned. Ugh...I still kind of pissed can you tell?!!

Hiya! What I think happened was that the moderators and some group members of a certain forum/group that your sister belongs too weren't following the terms of use and causing uproar all over Ravelry forums, not just the one that it originated from and they were also linking to Ravelry from another site. Casey and Jess had to do so much policing that they shut down that group and suspended membership. They track member usage by ISP addresses so all ISP addresses, associated with those members, that were used to log onto Ravelry will be suspended too. So when you logged on using your sister's acct, your ISP address was affected by the suspension. I hope you'll get it sorted out. Also, the e-mail address is legal@ravelry.com not ravelry@legal.com.

Oh man, this sucks! I hope you get this straightened out ASAP. I adore all the pictures you post of your fiber, and handspinning, and if that's not enough all the fiber you fave from other uses. Your clicks really help get my creativity flowing.

FYI, it appears your profile on Ravelry is back up, so you may want to try logging in again.

I'm looking forward to seeing more beautiful handspun socks from you. :)
