Sorry About the Nazi Pedophile Comment
I was way out of line. In case angelgal28 is reading this, I want her to know that I'm really really really sorry. Sometimes knitting chatrooms get heated, and we say things that we don't mean. But, angelgal28, you also crossed a line. When you said that Crystal Palace brand needles were "retarded", you threw down the gauntlet. That's when I pointed out that people who use Bryspun needles to make scarves, tend to be Nazi pedophiles. In retrospect, I see how that might be construed as offensive. And I am also sorry about calling yarn_queen an "alpaca whore". Alpaca is a fine yarn. My point was that it doesn't measure up to cashmere--I don't care how it's boiled or treated. Alpaca is not as good as cashmere.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, please don't sue me. When I go into a chatroom, I don't treat it like it's ME going into a chatroom, but my alter ego, needlewarrior. Needlewarrior, unlike Laura Swisher, doesn't take guff from anybody. Needlewarrior will call a knitting Nazi a knitting Nazi, if she truly feels that a person's knitting style or philosophy smells a little Third Reich-y. But not Laura Swisher. Laura Swisher thinks you're all entitled to your opinions, even if they're clearly wrong.
Again, please don't sue me.
