If so, I’m in. I’m not working on anything at the moment, but I joined Ravelry last year (and now I’m glad I did!) I crochet, so I’ve browsed patterns there, but I haven’t done any groups or forums yet.
There’s a lot of butt hurt magats - who have never touched a skein of yarn in their life - feeling all victimized by Ravelry, and are getting ripped a new one by a bunch of blue-haired old lady* stitchers on teh tweeters! LULZ to be had!
*Okay, I know all stitchers aren’t old ladies, but I giggled at the idea of an army of grannies telling the trumptrolls off.
Full disclosure - I am old, my hair is sometimes blue, and I am bistitchual.
I haven’t been very active on Ravelry beyond pattern browsing since the Obama years (…sigh…), and the limited number of forum topics I participated in regularly back then were already subject to some awful interactions. It’s an online social network, one centered around yarn-related crafts, but still a social network with all that goes with that. So, color me unsurprised that the pro-Trump, aspirational Fascists have done there what they do everywhere else.
I would say the same thing for any number of hobby or fandom sites / boards I’ve visited, but somehow there’s always people who find a stray thread they can cling to, bait people into saying something vaguely anti-Trump, and eagerly go off on a huge rant about how they’re being treated unfairly, that Trump supporters are discriminated against, etc. It’s amazing how excited they get about pretending to be insulted.
The equivalent of that behaviour on RPGnet would be, I guess, running a play-by-post game of RaHoWa or some other terrible garbage. Though I suspect that wouldn’t have flown even before the ban on posts in support of Trump.
