words

just a non controversial picture (I hope)

Apparently there are places where you are not allowed to use a certain 'word.' And no, its not a rude or disrespectful word. Its a fairly inane, harmless little word. If you use this word, as hundreds of other people do, you may get a letter from a big legal firm, via another party, advising you to no longer use this word. You may also get an email telling you not to discuss this issue regarding the use of the 'word.'

Who thought sewing could get so nasty? Who thought it would involve warnings and lawyers and banned words?

I certainly didn't.

Now, where is that first year law text book I have floating around...

Ed: I should clarify. It's not the sewing world that got nasty here - its the corporate world invading our little sewing/crafty world...

I have to agree...I'm so curious about what 'the word' is!! Gee, people really know how to put the kibosh on a good, innocent time.

OK. What the?
Send 'em a letter threating a suit for undue stress.
That'll learn 'em...XXxx

This is just too intriguing ... how can we find out so we don't use the same word?
