I hate to see hard feelings come up here on KH. When I read Suzeeq’s post with the “No” in it I didn’t hear any negativity. I’ve known Suzeeq a long time and just heard her trying to clarify, not be rude. She helps so many on here and at Ravelry that if she gave long answers and had to worry about her wording too much she wouldn’t have a life. I see her exactly as she described herself–blunt, but not rude. I hope no one will leave the forum over this misunderstanding.
I hope I have not offended anyone myself. I can imagine myself starting a statement, like Sue did, with the word “no” without meaning to be rude. It is hard to always be careful enough when body language, sound of voice, facial expression, etc. are not available to make clear how we meant something to come across.
