Thank you for bringing up the Trump ban thing. It's nice to hear that I'm not the only one who felt it was too much. I am politically on the opposite end of the spectrum from his ilk as well. But I dislike censorship, and this felt like the first step toward making Ravelry into Cassidy's own little fiefdom/'safe space'.
There was quite a lot of proof that Trump supporters were using Rav info to dox non-Trump supporters. Not being from the US and disliking censorship I was prepared to complain loudly about censorship until I saw the evidence. Which I do not have access to now, because when the buttplug and leather kink showed up on the front page it was the last straw: I deleted my account.
Ohh, I hadn't heard about doxing. Wish I could say I'm surprised.
