What is going on here ? It would appear that sewgirls has linked themselves to our group. This is not a great idea as I presume OM does not wish to have her post appearing there.
Perhaps sewgirls might like to explain this as I suspect they are drumming up quantities of posts (showing as made to their group) for some commercial reason.
Be interesting to see if they are even checking here to see what was said.

One or two people on alt.sewing complained about this some time back. It seems that they are a monitored group, allowing only their members to post, but they ADVERTISE that they pick up everything on the Usenet except spam and foul language. They also appear to carry a great deal of advertising. If you will Google (or whichever search engine you prefer) for sewgirls, you can read all about it. Incidentally, when I checked on them last time, when the alt.sewing people complained, they seemed only to carry that list. Now, however, I see that they are also copying the quilting, machine embroidery and yarn boards to their cosy, safely monitored, exclusive, advertising-rich site.
A pity they cannot be sufficiently grown up to read the real thing.

This happened on my local group and we discovered that it was a forum just like sewgirls. What was in it for them was the more 'posters' they appeared to have, the more advertising revenue they could generate.
In the end some of the men physically threatened the owner of the forum and pdq he unlinked our group. It's too bad, I noticed the post because the format for forums is different from usenet and the average forum poster does not realize that their post would appear here with no lead in.
Maybe we should all start posting at sewgirls and tell them we don't like it ? I resent being made use of and I like to know where my posts are going.

It appears to be a fairly common practise. Posts show up on the commercial sites appearing as if we posted there. Try googling yourself (or me - since you might be disappearing) on the Web. Revenge of the spammers, I say. Dora

Sheena, may we all have permission to snip this bit and use it to start any and all we post for a while???? That should slow things down over at sewgirls.

Oddly enough, they have not posted Sheena's salty reply, but have posted my post and Lucille's with the snarky snip from it.

I just looked and all I saw was my note re Joan and the possibility of flooding. Do you think they removed it that quickly?

I vote we start all subject lines with the *F* word....much easier than picking it out of a message body.

No, they have have our conversation, including JinxMinx' great suggestion of using the F word (I have to say F word, my computer Rene has given up cursing for Lent), but not Sheena's post. But of course, everyone can read Sheena's post in our subsequent posts.

Yup, they were there when I looked this time.
Obviously they don't live up to their promise to keep things "clean." Or else, they don't consider fuck off to be a curse.
If your rene, your computer won't curse, feel free to send them to mine and she'll be delighted to forward them. She has no problem typing cursewords. After all, she's been living with a kid who learned the vernacular in the finest way, right on the street.

I never swore until I hit adulthood, and the older I get, the more brazen I get with it! Swear words are just creative groupings of alphabet letters to emphasize a point, like underlining or highlighting is to the written word. Although I must say, now that Baby is starting to babble, I'm trying to at least keep swearing in check around her. I'd hate to have her first word in public to be the *F* word!

Jinx...that reminds me when DD was a toddler...about 2 I guess. I had a bad habit of leaving cupboard doors open, and DDH had the stupidity to bang his head on said red kitchen doors(they were high up). Shortly after such an episode I heard my sweet innocent little blond daughter singing "goddam door, goddam door".

I was so good driving my younger grandsons around but one day a 'shit' slipped out. We arrived at the house and Nicholas said to his mother "Granny said shit" and Joanna muttered, 'Jeez, we're lucky that's all she said " lol Funny how they instantly home in on things like that as opposed to good table manners or whatever.

My friend's teenagers owned the cutest little yellow cockatiel who once landed on my nose and asked me for a kiss. When I said something like get lost, he told me to go F**k myself. Neither of the kids would own up to teaching him that.
What amazed me was how appropriately he used the phrase when he was annoyed with me.

.When Sam was a baby, his favorite for a while was s**t f**k. Every time he said it we'd say, Oh, sit duck? Broke him in a couple of weeks.

Sorry about the lack of snip, but I wanted to keep the offensive language in! My first husband, bless him, still says "Sugar!!" when annoyed, because he didn't want DS to say S**t!!! (his then favourite curse) and so very conscientiously changed it. 30 years later, and he still does it.
