This morning I was working on the site and I found some porn. I deleted it and the poster. However, many innocent members were banned as well. This caused quite a bit of havoc and upset. I won't go into details but it was my fault.

I have hired someone for repairs and everything seems to be back to normal. Sorry for the inconvenience and welcome back.

Thank you so much Mary for battling those degenerates for us. :mad:

I'm sure all of us middle-aged seamstresses are their target viewers..........:shock:

What could they have been thinking??

Thank You Mary! I was having MAJOR withdrawals since I have a house full of kids today & needed to retreat once in a while.
I thought maybe you were tired of me reporting the porn & that was why I got banned.
Happiness is having time to sew!!

I know what you mean, Laura. I always miss the good stuff. Must be my rose colored glasses.

I thought I was the only one who did that. I got caught sewing on Friday in just the knickers by hubby (lucky for me the baby sitter wasn't with him). The bone in my bra had been stabbing me, but I'd forget to fix it. But I needed to wear it out, so I fixed it on the spot. So I think I have learnt to take time out to start fixing my clothes as quickly as I fix everyone else's.
Cheers, Soph.

I'm happiest when I am sewing!
