To begin with, you're not bothering me. I'm thankful for your interest and the concern about my previous post. Being an author, I do have a tendency to say what I'm thinking at the moment, without edit. And even in real time, I do have a problem with controversy. So, I'm used to someone shutting me out...just not used to someone shutting me down. Secondly, the Buck Strong issue (my new photo) was done after reading his spinning blog on blogspot. I enjoyed it, and thought how rightful it was to pay homage to someone who wasn't a stereotype. As for here? I plan to put up a post momentarily apologizing for what I may have said (which goes against my own ideas, but...) You know, I may change my idea about my post. I may go completely wild and say what I feel: that it was ridiculous to pull down the post of someone who gets read a shit load more than "my granny squares are coming along nicely." We don't come here for the ideas of knitting. We know what we're doing, we know this craft, we may hunt down ideas and get encouragement, but to be truthful, this idea was to promote the idea of MEN who knit. Not ladies, not children, not pansies. And like being a group of men in a room of common interests, our ideas about life, love, sex, turmoil, and blessings will all come out...honestly. Because we all have a common bond. We're allowed to be real with each other because have a common link that affords us comfortability with each other. So, I think I just wrote my next blog. The administrators of this site never said, "Hey, man....pull back." Nor was there an explanation given as to why my post was pulled. I'm not sure what's going on. I may get banned....for being a MAN who knits.
