Tsk! Tsk! I don't want you to start in on me like you all did him. OK? I am an
outsider here, stumbled onto your group and was shocked! I see that you will
defend whatever you say? Would you want someone to say the things to your
children that you have said to Mr. Boone today and in previous days? I wouldn't
repeat some of what was said in front of my kids. I feel sympathy for him,
probably he hasn't been a part of such a group before, already felt like an
outsider and was bomboarded by these messages when he wasn't sure of the exact
way to behave in such a group. Make sense, so far? I hope so. He seems like a
nice guy. No one seemed to be listening when he spoke. For instance, he
admitted he did not know his way around the group, no one came forth to help
before the messages started and no one came forth once the messages started.
Several of your members did call him names and make comments that can mean
exactly what they imply. A person on ***, for instance, IS a drug user! We
have all heard the kind of twisted logic that says otherwise. If you ask
someone if they are on ***, for example, you are implying that the person is
a drug user? You cannot be one without the other. See? I'm an English teacher
and parttime crafter myself, so I tend to take things quite literally. We
expect others to say "exactly" what they mean, so we must all be accountable
for what we say. Calling a person a Troll is not nice. Besides, I have a
lovely Troll collection from Norway! Please don't belittle human beings this
way. I still stand by my sentiment: It's the 4th of July! Something to think
about this 4th is how we treat others and if we would want the same treatment
in kind. We wouldn't want our loved one treated so poorly, so why do we treated
the loved ones of others this way?
Please do not start in on me the way you have on Mr. Boone. Please! I apolgize
for calling the lady a guy, she seemed put out by this. Think about it. Mr.
Boone was called far worse!
PS - Please, please do not send me hostile messages or anything to my email
address! I do not want to be treated this way, I don't think anyone does!
