    Such division by sites (and people) like Ravelry should not be supported. We need people that, while able to hold to political viewpoints, still are able to live together as a nation. Influences like Ravelry tend to promote division that could lead to civil war.

    I had never heard of Ravelry before yesterday. If their actual goal was to promote themselves through controversy, they succeeded.

    I have never even seen any political stuff on there, but I haven't been there, really, in at least a year. I haven't followed any threads except those that discussed particular patterns.

    It's really disappointing that the divide in the US over the President has affected this site, and who knows what others. It's difficult for me to comprehend that this type of censorship is not only going on, but applauded and embraced by many.

    Um, so how exactly does banning people "provide a space that is inclusive of all"?

    Eggzactly! As my dear brother CP is fond of saying.

    The hypocrisy is strong with the left side.

    So, apparently, the site's silencing of non-liberal voices isn't new.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    Wow. I had no clue any of that was going on. Cuz I never actually hit the forums.

    Glad I deleted my account.

    This situation is like Google being exposed for editorizing the search engine to hide conservative normal viewpoints in the name of fairness.

    The idea of fairness seems to be to promote racial division by claiming that America has never become fairly integrated.

    CP's Google thread is sort of why I named this one the way I did.
