I don't get it...

I going to rant a bit about knitlist on yahoogroups. I appreciate that there are well over 10,000 members on that group and that a team of moderators work to make sure the group rules are followed. I replied to a post regarding the TV show Pushing Daisies and my post was rejected for being a one-liner. Okay... I wasn't going to make a big deal about it and if I had added a short blurb about what was on my needles then it wouldn't have been an issue, right?

So today, I open up my knitlist digest and I read a post from a woman looking for quick knit Halloween costume ideas for babies. This post was followed (on the digest) by another person who had changed the subject line of the original post and added a snarky one line response questioning the value of putting babies in costumes and remarking on the lengths some people will go for free candy. To which I say, WTF!?!

So my innocuous one-liner was rejected and the snarky one-liner was sent through... NICE...

That's why i left. It is impossible to work a group of 10,000 people.

I thought I was the only one. Moderators should leave their bad attitudes at the door, but the folks at Knitlist can't seem to do that, and are more intent on "parenting" than they are on lettting adults post, without getting "scolded." Believe me, you're not missing anything.
