I am totally floored...this afternoon I posted a link on Splitcoast Stampers to the Christmas quotes, sentiments, etc. here on the blog. This evening after I got home from sewing and I had not one but two e-mails from a couple moderators over there. The emails were to inform me that my post was deleted because it is/was considered a "promotional" post and not allowed.
I have to tell you this really offends me on so many levels.....
First off ~ I see TONS of links by numerous people over there in both the Forum AND Gallery that takes people not to a specific post on their but just links to the whole blog. Most say things like "For details see my blog".
Second ~ I am not promoting any particular company (like so many of the SU people do) nor am I selling things (like alot of the Etsy) folks do. I am doing this to share what I feel is a wealth of useful information that benefits not only stampers/card makers but scrapbookers, teachers, and any other person who would find some use for these quotes. In the past I have posted similar links and have rec'd posts and e-mails thanking me for all of my hard work.... It has taken me YEARS to accumulate this information and it takes HOURS and HOURS to type up and collate this information (if you will notice all of my lists are in alpha order).
Third ~ I ALWAYS post a direct link to the specific thread and explain in my post on Splitcoast what I have posted there. If someone doesn't need this information then they aren't sent somewhere blindly ~ they know exactly what they are going to find.
Forth ~ they mentioned I should post the information directly on Splitcoast.... This is a 31 page document in MSW..... Their comment pages don't even let you type in that much information!!!
I don't know.....maybe I'm over reacting a bit but
@(#*&%)(!@*#& that really honks me off....
Try to do something nice and share some useful information with others and get a response like that.....
I feel like I'm a criminal :(
I just do not understand!
