Quote from: Garden Girl on June 19, 2017, 10:27:01 pm..............suggestions for topics to be relocated there? I'd kind of like to see the various threads primarily aimed at browbeating or guilting us about waste inherent in our society's system to leave the general population of threads.
Quote from: Karen on June 20, 2017, 07:05:19 amI would like to thank DL and mods for making this accommodation - not because I think it was necessary as I believe we should, at least I should, take personal responsibility for not clicking on something I may not want to read no matter how innocuous or inciteful, or not clicking in the future should I find I don't want to read it for whatever reason - though I can understand why it may be a good business decision. I think it shows exceptional consideration to our members. It also makes me wonder if I could convince the wonderful ice cream shop (my favorite food) a couple doors down from Joann's to close when I shop for sewing stuff so I won't be tempted to go in, or get Joann's to close when I go to dollar scoop night so I won't be tempted to buy more sewing paraphernalia when in the area.

Quote from: Manuela on June 20, 2017, 09:08:15 amCan't we just all appreciate that those who want to discuss politics can do so as they wish, and those who don't have a chatter section without political topics?There is a child board for food and health, regional groups, etc, now there is one for political topics as well.... Not sure why it is opt in, but that's up to DragonLady and the mods.Why is there a need to looks down on those who do/don't want to discuss politics
Quote from: mudcat on June 20, 2017, 10:20:11 amI understand your point Karen, but most topics are not so divisive and the negativity in the political threads seem to be spilling over into other areas which is causing people to leave which I hate to see because we will lose valuable sewing related input.The way I view the forum is to show unread posts and to very quickly click each of the new buttons as a new tab and then I read each tab individually (as I find back buttons to be too slow) so I don't necessarily realize what the subject is until then. Even though there are some areas I'm not interested in (embroidery, bear making and so on) I may still glance at them if there aren't a lot of posts on the off chance there might be photos which I enjoy viewing even if it's something I'm not interested in making.

Quote from: karent on June 20, 2017, 08:23:53 amGuilting us about waste? So all those "too much stash", stash busting and decluttering? Really? I'm a little unsure how to sort this out as well. K
