I’m a cyber stalker! Watch out!
Posted by Amber on July 4, 2008
So, according to a person in this thread on ravelry, I’m a cyber stalker, because I clicked over to a person’s profile and looked at their yarns and projects. Which is actually sort of the point of ravelry – sharing your projects with people. I mean, someone I know from Stitch doesn’t want people to be able to ID her based on projects, so she doesn’t upload any projects. Very simple. When I joked about how had I gone from LiveJournal to ravelry, and then commented back on LiveJournal about what I saw on Ravelry then they could call me creepy, some people did not find it amusing (however, I made 8 new friends in two days, so other people did find it very amusing. Who knew being a smart ass was a good way to make friends?).
But it doesn’t really cover the ACTUAL creepy things I’ve done – when people comment with fake email addresses (ABBY!) or forget to sign comments on posts on other sites (AMBER!) I typically use IP look ups, and figure out who the person was in order to write back. Which all my friends probably think is way creepier than looking at projects on ravelry.
Anyway. I just wanted to warn all of you: I’m a cyber stalker. So watch it! I’ll see your projects and answer your comments in an email! Fear me!
(ETA: And now, a cat-napper. I found my neighbor’s [declawed] cat in the hall, so I scooped her up to put her in my apartment – figuring yarn and electric cords were safer than dogs and raccoons. I made it one flight up (I live in a walkup) before my neighbor came up from the laundry room, right as Buttons-the-cat was sinking her fangs into my arm. Teach me to help out kitties.)
