So Recently I got an email from a former member about how she posted a discussion about wanting to help people do maintenance on their locks. She advertised that she crocheted, palm rolled, and something about wool wrapping (Not sure what that means).
Well, this member asked me to delete everything that had her nameassociatedwith it, as well as her account. I did, out of respect. But I also sent her an email back that I hope calmed her down.
Her main concern was about how some members got an angry tone in their responses and she felt attacked.
So this post is a plea to everyone for a little more respect to members who use destructive methods for their locks.
I am definitely not asking us to stop telling people how bad wax, crocheting, interlocking, and palm rolling are. But I do think there are ways to go about it better. It may take more activity by some of us. But It will be worth it. Quite a few people have signed up and then quit because they felt they were being attacked (I am guilty of this too). I would like to help these people out as much as possible. But I would also really like to keep them as members so they can keepbenefitingfrom this great community.
So please, when you find someone who used wax, or crocheted their hair, or did anything else we know is destructive, and damaging, please be kind and calm with them. Have facts straight and if at all possible, maybe post links to other posts or videos to help emphasize your point. When they see a video, it will help them relate to the issue better
