For the love of Ravelry
In my opinion, this is all about money. If we gave them enough money for use of "the word", they (you know who I mean) wouldn't have a problem. This will be the first time in over 40 years that I will not be watching the games. I will be boycotting the sponsors of the games. I am not trying to encourage anyone else to follow suit, I am just expressing my opinion.
I am more sad, confused, frustrated, angry and just plain PO'd than I know how to express. Okay, I know how to express it, but I don't want to be sued.
Happy Creativity to you all (if you can muster it).
