Discovered today that someone in my yahoo group has been sending snippets of messages from the group to the owner of another group I'm in along with a couple other members. This has ended up looking as though myself and my friend Jo have been slating the group and its members and making derogatory comments -which we haven't but we've not been allowed to defend ourselves and show the messages in full so the owner can see the context....... I now feel as though I'm ready to give it all up - groups, crafting, the internet........ all of it. I feel so hurt that someone who I thought was a friend could go behind my back and do this when neither Jo or myself had done or said anything wrong...... so now I've got the group owner on my case and had a few of the members giving their opinions too..... even though they only got one side of the story. Instead of having the decency to send private mails to either of us it got broadcast in the group and so now we're the bad ones..... talk about witch trials - they've got us found guilty and ready for execution without a trial I'm getting blamed for all the bickering etc on the group now and told I started it when it wasn't even me who posted the message in the first place!
Why do people have to be so cruel and go out of their way to hurt people?? I could understand if I'd upset anyone but this is just so horrible. I'm now in a position where I've to watch everything I do or say in my own group!!!!! The person behind it hasn't even got the courage to own up and the group owner says I should go to them over it all not her group - yet she's refusing to tell me who it is but I do have a couple of possibles - after all, there's only 11 in the group so shouldn't be too hard to pinpoint
Going to have to think long and hard over this one but maybe its time just to give it all up...... either bang everything on ebay or maybe just bin the lot and say to hell with it
