Help! Help! I'm Being Repressed!

On my travels around Ravelry today, I discovered this thread.

Yep, that's right. The person who spends all her time on Ravelry making giant biblical tl:dr posts and constantly harasses everyone for not being Christian enough is feeling bullied. Gee, I wonder why? Could it be because people are sick of her crap? According to Ranty McCrazypants, it's because they're not Christian enough ( I see a pattern forming here...)

Lapislazuli is not the only one on Ravelry who cries oppression. Since I posted about the PIC group a little while ago, they've gone crying to Casey about the mean libruls and how nasty they are. One in particular has been complaining about how badly she was treated in another group here . What she failed to mentioned was exactly how badly she behaved herself . Again, I wonder why people weren't nice to her?

Not only are they crying on Ravelry, they're still using the comments area of every web page they can find to bitch about the Bunker Idiots being kicked off Ravelry, like here . The Epic Banning happened over a year ago! How can someone maintain that much bitterness for so long? And as ZantiMissKnit has already pointed out, Cat in the comments (aka Atheling) didn't get banned - she left with a flounce of epic proportions. And she flounced because her behaviour was worse than Lapislazuli's and people called her on it.

It's not that people are being bullied or laughed at because they're conservative. There are plenty of conservatives on Ravelry who get along fine. People are being bullied or laughed at because they're acting like assholes. How you treat people is how they treat you back. I only hope they never figure this out, because their wailing and gnashing of teeth makes for some awesome rubbernecking.

Champagne Quality Crazy

Hey guys, sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I started reading a health care reform thread on Ravelry and the sheer boredom of it put me in a coma. I've only just recovered.

I have a little gem for you today which is not directly Ravelry related, but it is online knitting community related. Remember the Yarn Harlot's stalker? If you don't, she blogged about her once and once only here. I've always thought that Stephanie handled this nasty little incident with her usual class and humour and she's obviously moved on since last July. She's never mentioned it again.

The stalker, however, has not moved on. If you have a peek at her Twitter feed here she's still Tweeting almost entirely about the Yarn Harlot and how offended she is by her. She still assumes that every one of YH's tweets are about her. As of today, the Yarn Harlot's latest offence is celebrating Easter with her family, even though she's an atheist and a vegetarian. The funniest thing about this person is that she seems to be suffering from the delusion that a) the Yarn Harlot sees her tweets and b) anyone gives a shit what she thinks. If her tweets weren't so hilariously funny, I'd almost feel a bit sorry for the poor dear. The only followers she has a spambots, and her tweets have the desperate feel of someone shouting in an empty room. I wouldn't bother replying to any of her tweets. It just reinforces her persecution complex. But if you're in a rubbernecking mood, her Twitter feed is gold.

Judging by her tweets that are not about the Yarn Harlot, I'd be feeling pretty nervous if I was Misha Collins (Castiel from "Supernatural"). It looks like she's starting to direct her crazy towards him, too.
