Here is the official rule thread:

http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=382930

POSTED BY COWMOMMY:

NEW ADDITION to the forum rules! Please re-read.

We have added another section to the Forum Rules
Price Gouging

DS is a community that prides itself on being helpful and fair to mamas that are trying to do what they feel is best for their children by cloth-diapering. Price Gouging goes against everything that DiaperSwappers stands for, therefore it is in any form unacceptable. Anyone selling an item for more than what they would have paid for it retail + shipping on DS will receive a warning. From that point on the 3 strike rule picks up and we will start handing out strikes for price gouging.

example: You bought diaper B for $20 and pd $3 shipping, you could sell that diaper on FSOT for no more than $23 plus what it would cost you to ship the diaper to the mama purchasing it.

24 hours after this message our Mods will start deleting threads that are price gouging, to give people a chance to either edit the price or mark the post for deletion. Any threads started after this announcement will fall under this rule and you will be warned. The rest must be edited within 24 hours or they will be trashed(no warnings will be given for threads started before this announcement)

    Capitalism=bad and Socialism=good. Got it!

  2. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    So much for a self regulating free market.

  3. Liljoeysmom says:

    Wasn’t the cost of being a site supporter just increased? That’s not fair I shoud be able to get the same price as everyone else.

  4. Ashley says:

    Bah. Big surprise. Another rule.

  5. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    And, it’s locked.

  6. What a wanker says:

    That’s their way of sticking their fingers in their ears and saying “lalalalallalalalalalalla I can’t HEAR YOU!”

    This is really just a matter of a few admins and mods having an opinion and forcing it on everyone else on Diaper Swappers which is BAD! not good!

  7. Manda says:

    *sighs* Utter crap.

  8. theboardbitch says:

    Communist community anyone???

    and then there is the introduction of Lee’s friend to help with the site… another man…

    before long it is gonna be nothing but men telling women what to do… welcome to the 50’s anyone?

  9. Stacey says:

    Wow. So, how are they going to figure out how much I paid for my crankies? Did I buy them at auction for $300 or off of fsot for $70 or off of fsot for $95? Can we not just let people decide whether or not they want to pay a fortune for a diaper?

  10. WTF? says:

    and I thought being a feminist means I get to CHOOSE what I sell my stuff for… silly me…

  11. boom1128 says:

    GAH!!! i had a reply all typed out and then bam! thread closed.

  12. Liljoeysmom says:

    Now the other thread is locked too. Someone needs to educate Lovely on the definition of scam or by her a dictionary.

  13. boom1128 says:

    ha ha! my next post, i actually went and looked up the definition for her. her posts are what really annoyed me.

  14. subpariq says:

    It would appear that the DS peeps also suffer from Iwannagetsueditous. Price gouging is illegal and by saying that people that sell their diapers at above retail is price gouging, they are accusing people of a crime. Defamation of character anyone? Do these people think at all before they make the rules? If I were one of the mamas that has sold above retail I would be throwing a fit.

  15. T-mama says:

    Oh PUHLEESE! They are just trying to keep prices fair. I think that if you want to price gouge, do it on eBay or another site. It shouldn’t be on a site like DS anyway!

  16. jess says:

    your welcome for the as stated KISS ASS thread…. umm i honestly wanted to say thanks since i’m sick of seeing the damn site used for people to come and rip off newbies. maybe there would be less of the omg i wanna try xyz but cant b/c the prices are through the roof threads threads and more of the new people can get a chance to try shit. i agree with tmama on take the gouging elsewhere…

    anyways there wasnt any ass kissing here but if thats the way you wanna see it fine.

  17. Me says:

    The Mod/Admin team of DS has decided to recant the “price gouging” rule. We made a mistake in not thinking out all the possibilities before making this rule a reality. We are human and we do make mistakes. If you received a warning or strike for anything said during this time please pm me and I will remove that for you.
    At this point we are going to simply respectfully ask that everyone on DS please practice good FSOT ettiquette, the same as the don’t bump every 2 seconds “ettiquette”. If someone sells you a diaper for $20 please don’t turn around and sell it on DS for $75. We are not telling you that you can not sell it for that, just asking that you please don’t do it on DS.
    So instead of this being a rule it is going to just go in as a respectful request to practice good FSOT ettiquette on DS. Thank you to all the mamas who were understanding and respectful in this situation.

  18. subpariq says:

    T-mama. You’re a dumbass too. Say it with me. Price gouging is illegal and typically happens during natural disasaters on items like water and gas. It can only happen when these items are not otherwise available ont he market at market cost. I know it must be a big stretch for you, but try this on on for size. You aren’t smart enough to be the boss of everyone else. You worry about you.

  19. Liljoeysmom says:

    Oh Please! The prices are fair or no one would be paying them. And I agree there shouldn’t be a FSOT board on DS. Take your for sales and trades to a professional B/S/T site with logical rules.

  20. Liljoeysmom says:

    PS: dictionary.com is your friend!

  21. subpariq says:

    Looks like cowbitch and the others have somewhat come to their senses and gotten rid of that stupid rule.

  22. Liljoeysmom says:

    Looks like the price police will have a harder time dictating the market value. Looking forward to the “you paid a lot less than your asking price for these diapers. I looked it up in your post history/feedback” posts!

  23. subpariq says:

    Bite me cow. I’m not going to pm you and get a strike or banned. You think your diaperswapper super admin power can tell me what to do via another forum? Remove your head from Lee’s ass. Don’t accuse moms that are doing perfectly legal things of doing something illegal. Think before you speak or make a rule. Stop contributing to the fuckedupness over moderation of ds with your thread closing and deleting heavy hand. Then come back and tell me you’re not a bitch and that you’re a nice person. Until then go diddle yourself.

  24. cowmommy says:

    OH I see how you got your name here now. You are one of those people that can’t talk without cursing. soooo subparIq fits you perfectly. so sorry you were born with such a curse. I will go back to ds now and leave you to you subpariq no need to respond I won’t be back

  25. theboardbitch says:

    hahahaha Crystal talks about Big Girl Panties???

  26. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    I’m glad the rule is gone. It was definitely not the best of DS choices. Thanks for letting us know cowmommy.

  27. Me says:

    Hey, cow momommy didn’t let you know, I did lol

  28. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    lol, I just noticed that 🙂

  29. cassie says:

    what the hell? i thought we weren’t allowed to even ELUDE to other forums on DS, but suddenly cowmommy, someone who’s supposed to be setting and EXAMPLE, is going back on her own rule? hmmm, double-standard, much? and i like how the thread is closed now. i wonder if anyone will point out to her the hypocrisy in her thread.

  30. dramaswapper says:

    Her “subpariq” thread has been reported for being childish and unnecessary. Also her shameless bump only 20 min. later goes against the 1 bump per day rule.

  31. DiaperTwatters says:

    DS Admin needs to get over themselves and stop making up rules that don’t even make sense. And kissing Lee’s ass is sooo not worth the Chocolate Laptop, people!!

  32. just me says:

    dosent anyone find it rather odd that Crystal/cowmommy can make that type of post over at DS without it being deleted BUT when of the members does the same its POOF gone and someone has been spanked or even banned! yes i know she is admin over there but she should be held to the same standards.

    besides i thought even mentioning other forums WASNT allowed bc the asshole who runs DS is threatened.

  33. What a wanker says:

    What did the thread the Cowmommy was linking to say???? it’s gone now! I’m such a nosy nellie!

    what a bunch of asshats. even trying to control their members to that extent was an idiotic thought on their parts. I was starting to feel like they were the borg and they were trying to assimilate me. maybe they could distribute some drugs to all the members who don’t follow in line and be good little boys and girls.

  34. theboardbitch says:

    What a wanker… there is a C&P of the thread here …http://thebatgirls.com/showthread.php?t=35643 cause someone just *knew* it would POOF on us…

    BTW, it was Cowmommy breaking DS rules by mentioning the BLOG *gasp*

  35. theboardbitch says:

    http://thebatgirls.com/showthread.php?t=35643

    link again…that one didn’t seem to work

  36. Awww, that sucks. I love the linking by a DS mod. lol Even though there IS one other thread that we’ve been linked to. Really, though, can we be considered competition? We’re just a blog. 😉

  37. As for the price gouging. If people don’t buy the damn diaper for more than it’s sold for new, there wouldn’t be anyone selling it for that much. What newbie is getting ripped off? What newbie is out buying $75 diapers? Sounds like a personal problem to me.

    I would love for you to pm me and speak with me if you have a personal problem with me, I am a nice person to talk to and I don’t appreciate being called names. I am sure if you have a personal problem with me, we can work it out

    I was simply wanting to APOLOGIZE if I had wronged someone. I am not breaking any rules by trying to do that. So Since offender calls me dirty names instead, I will apologize here. I am sorry if I offended you. I apologize for my last comment that I made I was angry and shouldn’t have said it, I’m not breaking any rules so please stop reporting me. Others have been allowed to apologize on here and we have not deleted them…thank you and have a nice day, life whatever.

  39. What a wanker says:

    Ah, I see. Yes, well, if we aren’t allowed to link here, I’m not sure why it would be acceptable for Cowmommy to link here. maybe if they didn’t set up a thousand stupid ass rules, they could remember their own rules.

    She isn’t the first mod/admin I’ve seen having no issues with breaking the rules they are supposed to be enforcing. Pretty funny.

    but at the same time, I wouldn’t have reported her linking here. I would have let it go so that more of the mom’s on DS could find out about this place and actually have a voice since DS main policy is the silence of it’s members. I probably would have just bumped it a few times so it would stay on top! tee-hee!

  40. What a wanker says:

    cowmommy, I don’t think subpariq has an issue with you exactly. I think we all take issue with you and the other mods/admins actually putting together a rule that single handedly forces others to conform to YOUR OPINION! Do you understand that?

    I think everyone can agree that bashing on DS is wrong, that Spamming is wrong, that using inflammatory language and racial slurs is wrong. Certain things are just not right and are agreed to by the entire community, or at least most of it, and of course, certain rules are necessary.

    But to effectively attempt to subordinate the members by creating a rule that forces your personal opinion on them is so wrong as to overshadow everything else. Any community that would go that far is really in a deep state of denial about their rights as a management team.

  41. DiaperTwatters says:

    “I was simply wanting to APOLOGIZE if I had wronged someone. I am not breaking any rules by trying to do that. So Since offender calls me dirty names instead, I will apologize here.

Others have been allowed to apologize on here and we have not deleted them…thank you and have a nice day, life whatever.”

    BULL SHIT!

    It would have been different if you said “Subpariq, I’m sorry if I ever wronged you, please PM me so we can talk.” But you didn’t say that, you were trying to call her out because you were being defensive. So stop trying to bull shit us by saying that you were just apologizing because you weren’t doing that! And you wouldn’t have added your BGPs comment at the end.

  42. theboardbitch says:

    Don’t you just love that edit feature that lets you go back and change what you said?

  43. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    LOL.

  44. subpariq says:

    Actually what a wanker, I do have a problem with cow bitch. Anyone that volunteers her time to support a person that is openly a bigot is a pos as well in my opinion. And I think we all know that cow bitch is tit deep in making rules just to weild her pathetic power. It pisses me off that she has essentially called other mamas criminals and has yet to apologize. And cow bitch. I might curse but at least I am smart enough to know what words mean before I use them in a big public way. Instead of stepping up and dealing with issues head on, you just lock or delete threads. I know the reason is that you have no argument to make so you have to do your spineless little lockdown copout. I think Lee gave cow bitch a spanking for coming over here. Cow bitch, you’ve been a bad little drone. Now go run and play your little thread lock up games. It is so amusing.

  45. subpariq says:

    can someone c&p the thread here? I only saw her first spineless sissy ass whiny post.

    I don’t want anything to get ugly I just couldn’t figure out who it was by doing a username search on here and I would, personally love to know if someone has a problem with me, why? I don’t feel that I have personally wronged anyone but would love to know if I have so that I can apologize

  47. Wow, that’s nice. “No big girl panties to be found.” I’m glad the pot and kettle can agree on that one.

  48. What a wanker says:

    sounds to me like she was just trying to figure out who to ban.

  49. subpariq says:

    Here’s a novel concept cow bitch. Assuming you are able to remove your head from Lee’s ass. Why don’t you start apologizing to the mamas you’ve called criminals with your little price gouging thread. A little news flash for you. dh is an attorney and said that a case could be made against ds for that. Also all the mamas that have banned and have the nice little taglines like “banned for hateful speech” have a case against ds as well. You want to talk about big girl panties. Why not come over here and hash it out? Oh that’s right because you couldn’t lock the thread, delete the thread or ban me if I said something you couldn’t argue. Small minded coward, pathetic drone of Lee. Get bent bigot lover.

  50. subpariq says:

    Oh yeah and if you want my ds username it is kimbellishments. now go ahead and ban me.

    ETA by DSDM (For our denser blog readers, this is a joke. You can search Kim and Kimbellishments on the blog and see for yourself the vast difference between subpariq and Kim/Kimbellishments)

  51. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    “Oh yeah and if you want my ds username it is kimbellishments. now go ahead and ban me.”

    HAHAHAHA

    Please someone kill me now if I sound like peach the foaming at the mouth raving lunatic or mealy mouthed ooey.

  55. blsimpson says:

    Wow, its really funny what people will do and say when they are anonymous..

    As for the rule, I do think that it sucked, and it was wrong. They shouldn’t have a right to govern what people can sell their own property for. If other users didn’t want to pay that price, they wouldn’t. The whole reason for DS is the FSOT. If it wasnt there, there would be no DS. I think they know that, and thats why they took the rule down.

    As for the legal thing, Id like to see proof of that.. And I would come over here and “has it out” with you either. All that comes out of your mouth is hate…

  56. I think DS needs to rethink their FSOT. Honestly, it’s not set up the best way, now that it’s grown. Hopefully they’re looking for a new solution for FSOT.

  57. subpariq says:

    Proof of what? Price gouging is illegal. Selling diapers over retail when there is not shortage on the market is not. cow bitch called these women criminals. And anyone can go check the little taglines like “banned for hateful speech.” Defame much Lee? A simple call to an attorney and you could verify that defamation of online identity cases are viable. And come over here and have it out with me was after she called me out like a sissy bitch on ds so she could delete my posts and ban me. And I don’t hate cowbitch but I haven’t an ounce of respect for anyone that volunteers for a known bigot. Talk about hate.

  58. blsimpson says:

    LOL. Last I saw GM’s were in shortage… And I also didn’t see anywhere where she called them criminals. As for the tags, she was telling the truth. Its their web site. They have the right to ban anyone they want, for anything they want. I also didn’t see how she was trying to get your username so she could delete your posts and ban you. I dont think that she would do that. I think she wanted to talk about what you were saying about her. She came here to confront you, and you couldn’t talk like an adult. She didnt “call you out” on DS. Sounded to me like she was apologizing, bu again, you ended up taking the low road. to quote you “talk about hate.”

    As for this line, “… I haven’t an ounce of respect for anyone that volunteers for a known bigot.” Sounds like hate to me. My wife volunteers her time on this site, and I can tell you she is not like that. She is doing it cause its what she likes to do. But whatever, you think what you want, your entitled to it, I guess..

  59. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    I believe that price gouging refers to bare necessities.
    Fair market value = what people are willing to pay for an item.

    Price Gouging is where products that are necessarily to live are raised during a time of disaster. Like a store can’t charge $75 for water during a drought.

    Manufactures cannot require someone to sell an item for $X.XX, all they can do is stop selling to that company. MSRP is a RECOMMENDED PRICE. Most retailers sell items far above MSRP in order to make a profit. That is legal.

    Same goes for GMs. If it pisses Suzanne off, she needs to either up her price, or up her production. If she won’t do either, she will have to just STFU and deal with the fact that people are going to resell her diapers for more than she is. Honestly, and she knows it, people are not going to pay more than they are for her diapers. The people spending the big bucks, already have a stash and are collecting. She knows it. Her “pool” is limited and loosing water.

    The world is not fair. Not everyone is going to be able to get a GM when they want. And if that person is willing to pay 50, 75, 125 for the diapers, then that is fair market value.

    Does that make sense?

  60. theboardbitch says:

    I agree DS DM 2, a specific brand of CD is NOT a necessity for life, therefor, whatever they sell at is supply and demand, not price gouging

  61. subpariq says:

    LOL okay. Let me do this slower for you. Goodmamas are not the only kind of diaper on the market. Therefore there is no shortage. Therefore it could not be considered price gouging. DH says that it would probably never be considered price gouging for a diaper since there are other options including the use of found items for diapering. But water. There is no substitution for that. And if poland springs decided to charge $30 a bottle they could do that in this market because there are others available. Saying people are price gouging is saying they are committing a crime.
    And some of the comments that were made are not considered “hate speech.” Hate speech usually refers to attacks on a person or group based on gender, sexual orientation, race, etc. You bet your sweet ass that it is unacceptable to label these mamas’ online identitities as such. It is defamation of character. And he doesn’t even allow a place for their comments or rebuttals. A big no no according to DH. But I’m sure you’re right bsimpson. You seem to have a real good understanding of the law and must be an awesome armchair attorney. And having no respect for a woman that volunteers for a bigot is not hateful but can see where you would be grasping desperately at straws given that your wife does the same thing. There are a lot of things that I like to do but wouldn’t do it at the expense of associating with or helping a bigoted asshole. To each his own though.

  62. Stacey2 says:

    DS makes a move towards total communist nirvana. Ahhhhhh…everybody breathe in the fairness. Next step! Everybody will own the same amount of GM’s, so if you have more than your fair share you have to sell (at cost!) your GM’s to those less fortunate. Cowmommy will decide how many GM’s a person needs.

    On another note…I am so tired of people supporting mommas getting more than retail for a diaper if she is “in need”. Everybody thought it was so great that the mom who’s kid needed surgery was making a killing on ebay. I guess its okay if your reason is good enough. This crap makes me sick.

    alright, mr. simpson, i like ya. i think you’re a cool cat. but if you had seen the OP, BEFORE all the editing *that she did under lock so no one could point out that she was breaking her own rules…* she WAS calling out SubparIQ, she said NOTHING in the OP about apologizing (again, this is BEFORE the edit), she bumped it after 20 minutes (which, again, is against the rules… she should have bumped the NEXT day if she was going to go along with the rules, but since she was already on a spree… who cares?!), then she LOCKS it, but not before getting in her last jab, “nevermind. no big girl panties to be found.” YEAH. mature. she says she shouldn’t have made whatever statement…. which one? she made many in this apparent fury, including the last about BGP’s, and she could have at least edited THAT post, and she certainly didn’t. THEN, she left the damn thing up! anyone else’s thread even HINTING at “the blog” would have been deleted and hands would have been spanked within minutes. but hers stays?

    double standard.

    and i’m guessing you were joking, but you KNOW GM’s are not the ONLY cloth diaper on the planet, with no substitutions available!

    i’m just sayin, she was all over breakin rules, not about setting an example of any sort. it’s a little hater-ific.

  70. blsimpson says:

    Cassie – Understood everything. She did break rules that she is supposed to up enforce. She made a mistake. Only human. I know I make rash decisions, specially when someone is attacking me..

    And I never said that there wasn’t any other alternative.. I was specifically saying GM’s. There are always other alternatives. I stated that GM’s were in shortage..

    I don’t feel bad for CowMommy. She called someone out over there against the rules, rather than asking her question here. :shrug: She should have talked to the “attacker” where it happened. Not on DS. That would just give them a reason to ban/strike subparIQ.

    Perhaps I am stating the obvious, but those of you that are up in arms about people supporting Lee are doing the same thing. Every time you visit DS, he makes money. It’s hypocritical to berate someone for “supporting” him, but then also visit the board yourself. Just thought I’d put that out there.

    I think Lee’s a jerk. I think it sucks that he and some other men that have no vested interest in cloth diapers or the members of that board are calling the shots. But, I’m more upset with Jodi (MamaJo). She bailed on her members and sold out. I understand she has a family and had other responsibilities to take care of, but she could have handed the board over to existing members rather than giving it/ selling it to Lee. I’m sure there are plenty of people that are members of DS that know how to run a site of that caliber that wouldn’t have run off valuable members and only saw $$ signs in place of real people. So, having said that, I’d venture to guess that’s why the Mods and Admins volunteer their time. Not in support of Lee, but in support of the members.

    I wish DS was the same as it was a couple years ago. I wish Lee and Juan and whomever else is on their pay roll would just collect their money and leave the rest to the members that care about the board. It was just fine before they came along, and I’d like to see it go back to that.

    Birdie – I agree with everything you wrote. Was said beautifully! 🙂

  74. cassie says:

    blsimpson, i should have added an “lol” to that last statement about the GM’s, cuz i was giggling when i wrote it. my bad, dude!

    Wonder how often cow is checking this blog? lol

    I totally agree and this is why I rarely visit the site. Of course, I need my regular dose of drama, so I can’t completely not go

    People should spent their $ how they please. The pricing police need to chill, or take a basic economic class.

  76. “Every time you visit DS, he makes money.”

    I really don’t care, honestly. I won’t come out of my pocket for him or the site. And if me using my Firefox with ABP still allows him to get paid, oh well. Guess I’m not one of the “up in arms” people, I just think it’s fun to blog about DS.

  77. Kim says:

    Please stop throwing my name around this blog saying that you are me. I have a just opened a hyena cart and by throwing my name around here someone may actually think the subpariq is actually me, when if fact I would not in a million years speak the way she is speaking. Please remove the posts that lie and say that she is kimbellishments.

    Thank you.
    Kim (kimbellishments)

  78. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    Kim, NO ONE took her seriously. It was an obvious pun. I know that you are smart enough to see that/understand that.

    That being said, we do not edit posts here. This is not DS.

    And hon, we have all seen your Hyena Cart, and work. You aren’t loosing any business from us.

    🙂

  79. theboardbitch says:

    Kim… wa wa wa

  80. What a wanker says:

    No one thought subpariq was you Kim. It was a joke. Everyone knew it.

  81. Kim says:

    I understand that the mamas the “frequent” here knew it was a joke, however, there are mamas that come here periodically and may misinterpret that to think it is me. Thats all. So if I can on here and hid behind an anonymous screen name I could say that I am anyone and that’s okay?

    I guess, my posting here clears it up for the most part, however, I think that if a poster is saying she is someone that she is not, that should be edited.

    STFU

  83. Liljoeysmom says:

    I think you should STFU. Let’s see who gets their wish first!

  84. The Real KimShady says:

    Kim .. shut up. You’re not witty enough to be funny like subpariq. You’re too much of a stuck up bitch for that.

    As for your HC…. No one on DS was honest enough to tell you that a child sitting on a dollar store stuffed bath mitt sucked. So being concerned about your cart being success shouldn’t be a problem. 😉 Although now that I think about it telling you that your worked sucked would have surely broken a rule. Or one that Lee would have made up about not making fun of his loyal ass kissers.

    Subpariq .. I love you.

  85. Hyenacartshopper says:

    Funny that some of you are saying that Kim’s things in her store are not nice, She sold out of everything.

  86. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    Kim, I hope you don’t get into trouble for selling copyrighted materials on your next stocking…. might want to check into that.

  87. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    FTR, Kim if you are going to come on as someone else, try posting on something else.

    Everyone, Hyenacartshopper has the same IP as…… you guessed it, KIM!!! And it isn’t a rolling IP.

    Nice hon. Really nice.

  88. Kim says:

    “Kim, I hope you don’t get into trouble for selling copyrighted materials on your next stocking…. might want to check into that.”

    When someone releases fabric into the stream of commerce they effectively have relinquished control over the uses of that fabric.

    While the pattern on the fabric may be copyrighted, the actual fabric itself is not. The pattern may include images of registered trademarks, such as the logo of the New York Yankees or a John Deere logo, etc.

    Copyright law applies to the use of licensed fabric in the application of the first sale doctrine. Bear in mind, the term “licensed fabric” legally only refers to the fact the manufacturer of the fabric has a license to use the images on the fabric. It does not mean the fabric is “licensed” to the purchaser. “Licensed” products require an agreement between the owner of the product and the potential purchaser. Fabric is not “licensed”; fabric is sold.

  89. cassie says:

    um… they weren’t talking about the fabric you were using, they were talking about the bath puppet washers you got from the dollar store. the creators may not like that their product is being resold as something else for profit. THAT’S what the people on here were trying to say. again, it has nothing to do with fabrics that were made specifically for the purpose of being created into something else…

  90. Kim says:

    They are not from the dollar store, I purchased them FROM A CRAFT store, contacted the company that makes them and hace it IN WRITING that I can make my dipes with them. So, thanks for your concern, but Legally I am fine.

  91. What a wanker says:

    Kim, you may be “fine” but you aren’t crafty. sewing a puppet washcloth onto a prefold-crafty? hardly. Anyone can take a needle and thread to do that.

    Why don’t you try coming up with something original?

    Oh, and another thing, I saw somewhere where you said it takes you an HOUR to make ONE of these asspuppets? If it takes you an hour to make one of these, you seriously need to find some other avenue besides sewing.

    seriously-an hour? wow! it would probably take me 5 minutes max.

  92. cassie says:

    “They are not from the dollar store, I purchased them FROM A CRAFT store, contacted the company that makes them and hace it IN WRITING that I can make my dipes with them. So, thanks for your concern, but Legally I am fine.”

    well, then i guess you are fine legally. pardon these other people who were simply warning you about something that easily could have been legal trouble for you. i, either way, could care less, i was simply clarifying something that you didn’t seem to understand (according to the nature of your responses). and craft store, or dollar store, it’s all a matter of semantics, it doesn’t matter if you got it from the GROCERY store. it’s a product with a specific PURPOSE. THAT was the point being made, not what store it came from.

    and since THOUSANDS of people look at this blog on a weekly basis, i’m sure they will know now that LEGALLY, you are OK to use the bath puppets on your prefolds. then again, they will also see your conduct on this site, and THAT will be the killer to your business, not someone pretending (as a joke) to have your UN on DS.

  93. I_Rock says:

    ButtPuppets …….Those are the stupidest things I have EVER seen in my life and very unoriginal.

    As for your next stocking, Guess How Much Love You fabric is impossible to find, especially to make 3 sets worth. What did you do? buy the PJ’s you can find online? I’ve seen your work, you can’t sew a straight line, can’t imagine you being able to accomplish a lap-T.
