Another twist regarding the Angel & posts??


OK -- here's another twist to the whole Angel thing. I received a cyber missive telling me that I had made one of the volunteers wish she had never heard of the project. Blame has apparently been laid at MY feet and nowhere else. This is in addition to my having done the same to Victoria. I assume this is because I have been assiduously responding to what I feel are uncalled for, nasty, and often outright slanderous posts. This e-mail did not come from the unhappy volunteer and I am sure there is more than one of the stitchers out there who is mightily fed up with all of this. My question is -- just WHAT would you have me do? Turn the other cheek is NOT an option because of the way I have been maligned and mistreated. Should I tuck my tail between my legs and run off and NOT stand up for myself and the project? I have been called a liar, been told I am a control freak, been told I more or less STOLE the project away from Victoria and all sorts of other nasty, unkind and untrue things. If people have read my past posts on any controversial topic it is obvious that I usually only argue a point for a day or two and then I have my final say and refuse to be drawn out any further. This time I have chosen to take a stand and NOT back down. No turning the other cheek because the things that have been said to me, of me and about me and others are total lies. Yes, yes, I know that no one wins a cyber argument but it really is time that someone stands up to the verbal bullying that can take place here. In my response to the e-mail received, I said that I am sure there are several of the 23 volunteers who are sorry they ever got involved in the project. Unfortunately, THAT happened long before this current round of animosity. If I have made you unhappy that you ever joined the project, why not tell ME? Tell me what I have done that is so horrid -- it's the only way I will know what it is that upset you so much! Standing up for myself and others is NOT childish. I also don't believe this is a time when the old "Be an adult" refrain is appropriate. I have refrained from outright name calling and "I told you so's". Yes -- I HAVE laid blame for certain things at Victoria's &/or Caryn's door (the old she said, she said thing) and I have every right to do so. I have repeatedly made note of the fact that I didn't start this dust up even tho' some want to believe I did. If that's finger pointing and fault finding then it is necessary and I'll continue to keep doing it as long as lies are being told about me. If you don't agree with me, then you will tell me I am being childish and I should "grow up", etc. and just "walk away". Not gonna happen folks as long as ANY of the volunteer stitchers -- myself included -- is being maligned I'm NOT sorry things have come to this point because it is TIME that someone takes a stand and actually fights against the posts that are mean and nasty from the get-go. Acrimonious responses to THIS post are ones that I will not respond to. I have had my say on *this* topic (to whit: my being to blame for making stitcher(s) wish they had never heard of the project).

Was it anonymous, so to speak ? If so, then it is worth zilch and is probably a devious little alter ego and nothing more. If people do not say who they are, ignore it.

It's okay to say I'm not really sick, though. Hmmm. People are fed up I suppose because of the obnoxious factor. You asked what to do with the left over fibers and I simply said since I paid for them, I should get them back. Then you said you will do that, but not before unwinding the bobbins, even though you hate bobbins. You create your own swirl of people who dislike you, as do we all.

Sheena loves to imply things that aren't true....like people use "devious little alter egos" (you'll recall how much she loves to insist that JV and I are one and the same....truly silly when "Caryn" says just about anything that comes into her head without needing to resort to sock puppets).
She seemed to leap to a conclusion that people who've written to Tia Mary sent anonymous messages. Which is interesting, because I don't believe anything in Tia Mary's message implied that was the case.
Since she seemed to accusing people without any basis, I called it snarky.
BTW, hope by the time you read this you are feeling better than you were this morning!

LOLOLOL! Well - nothing`s going to lie in peace with you yelling like that ! ;-)
There`s someone on our local newgroup who uses half a dozen different identities just to try to create mayhem, but anyone who knows about such things can soon suss it out from the "Properties" (I`ve never been interested enough to know exactly how, maybe someone on here who`s more knowledgeable could enlighten us. It should put paid to such accusations, anyway). Does your Jim know how?
And yes, thanks, Caryn, I`m feeling much better.

Glad to hear today is a better day!
I love a good conspiracy theory as much as the next person, but I don't see them everywhere! LOL
