Is RedBubble A Family??

A friend of mine mentioned yesterday that RedBubble is just an art site and we should not get involved with other matters….It would be safe to say that when the originators of this site first started it they didn’t comprehend that it was going to grow into what it is today. RebBubble has turned not into just an Art site….but a family, how do I figure that? I have belonged to a lot of art sites over the years but when I came to RB I was made welcome and I saw that the other artists Cared about me and my art, never got that from the other sites and still dont. If you dont believe me go look at the journals others are putting up, talking not just about their art but whats happing in their lives, the good things, the bad things, pray for my family, can someone give me some suggestion…..that is someone reaching out to their family….US We have learned to care and respect one another, we may not agree with each others comments or art so instead of being rude its best not to say nothing at all. Look we are all adults and we should act like adults, we all come from different backgrounds and cultures, most of us will never meet except here on RB, and we dont know what is really going on in the other person’s life, I have seen people make fun of someone because they don’t dot the I’s and cross the T’s, how do you know that maybe just maybe that person has had a stroke, or is in a wheelchair with a pen in their mouth hitting the keyboards? I was raised to treat others as I would like to be treated, to respect your potical and religious believes even if I dont agree with them….but when attacked never back down and never take no crap.

So in the past couple of days someone was kicked off RB that has been attacked in the past by a certain person and finally she blew and said the wrong thing…..but I feel she had to be drawn to that point where she blew up… She was kicked off for good, no warning, just shown the door, he on the other hand is still here. We are adults, and we are a family like it or not. RB should have got with both people and talked it out, gave them both a month or week ban and tell them never again. But it was not done like that. If you have no idea what Im talking about go into the forums and you will find 3 topic’s that are locked and read. We are adults, if you dont like what someone puts up either discuss it like an adult or say nothing at all. I have asked Peter if there is a way that RB could put up an ignore button on the comments, journals, BM, etc so if someone is flaming you all you have to do is hit the ignore button , case closed. I’am waiting for his reply. A lot of other sites have a system for this why not RB?
In closing, I want to Thank the people or as I would say my family that commented on my last journal and also BM’d me asking me not to leave RB. You have touched my heart with your words and concern, I will Bm each and everyone of you.
So is RB just for Art or is it a Family?? Myself would say both.
