Clarification re EB

Just a quick clarification regarding the EB forums - I was not attacking the moderators in my blog post a couple of days ago, I was expressing my hurt and confusion at being singled out. I know that a member of the forum 'pointed out' my (innocent and accidental) rule breaking to the moderators, hence the telling off. I still don't understand why a link to a personal blog is not allowed, to be honest, but my hurt primarily arises from the unknown member who must not like me for some reason. Otherwise, why not just say "Hey, Danielle, I'm not sure if you realise but that bit of your post is not allowed".

OK, so I am still hurt. But just wanted to clarify I was expressing my hurt feelings and, yes, irritation and also a bit of confusion. NOT attacking anyone. Apparently this has been misconstrued.

And on that note, I have continued to be amazed and - is there a word for 'heartwarming' but as in the result - 'heartwarmed' maybe? LOL. Anyway, you get the idea, at the response of so many sweet women who I had chatted with via EB, getting defensive on my behalf etc. I still won't be participating, besides that last post which I just had to say - Rach you are hilarious, and gorgeous - but I will be doing lots more blog-hopping and the occasional lurking instead!

OK MOVING ON NOW
I'll be back tomorrow with a cute photo from today!

Yay Rach :) I still don't quite get what is OK or not over there to be honest. How can you have a blog link in your sig but not in a post? Ah well...good luck with the kits.

Hi there.... it is just unbelievable on some forum sometimes, isn't it? It is supposed to be an informational forum for people to exchange ideas and great things they know about. So if I know about a good website, I'd talk about it. People can make up their own minds. I don't know what the big deal is really. {{{HUGS}}} to you.

Jeez, didnt realise all this was happening until reading Rach's blog..It really gets me annoyed to know that eitehr annon members of EB or supposed 'friends' dob to the mods when like you said a friendly warning would do just as good a job! I assume from your post that you were told to not even link your blog??? Now that's insane, everyday we are all linking our blogs and like Rach says, promoting DT sites etc. I think what they have done to you is really wrong! And I'm so very sorry it's happened :(

I was just popping in to say hi & I see you've had some dramas. Chin up chickee ;o) And reading further down I'm glad to see I'm not the only one dealing with public tantrums LOL :o)

I really hope things get sorted out on that site so it never happens again. I would be really hurt in the same situation too. Its really unfair.

Danielle - that sucks what they did to you. I am truly disgusted!
I haven't really gotten a chance to get to know you over there, so I do hope you will feel up to coming back, if not, keep in touch!
Hope to see you at my crop on Saturday!

OMG Danielle I cannot believe how ridiculous this situation is!! Besides the obvious that you will be sadly missed on the EB Scrapping forum, I am very excited about receiving my Q Tea kits in the future and wish you every success with this - you will definately be having the last laugh :-)
