I joined a site on Facebook a while ago, it was to help people sell their Quilts or work. It seemed most of the people on there were in USA, that’s OK, nothing against that at all. I joined in some conversations that took my fancy, some interesting people and pieces of work on there. In fact I have been chatting to one lady from the site ever since.
Then, the other evening I saw a message that I found offensive, I replied to it, then informed the person I was reporting it to Admin. Which I did, saying that I found the post that had been put up was offensive especially in this particular year and I wasn’t at all sure I wanted to belong to a group that allowed this sort of comment. The follow on comments to the original post were a pretty mixed bunch I have to say, some were saying there was nothing wrong and others were agreeing with me. Then in one message I was told it was not worth reporting. WHAT? I am not going to put on here the full message – well actually I can’t as I have been removed from the group!! Suffice to say it was comparing the Administration people who run the group to – Natzis – her spelling not mine.
After reading all the messages for and against it turned out this person was just wanting to get people to join HER group so they could sell their work. What a way to go about getting people to join you.
I had a message from the admin people saying they were sorry I felt the message was upsetting !!!! and so were removing me from the group so I would not be upset again.
Is it me?
