Thank you, Twinleaf. I am having difficulty putting my thoughts into words.
The silence about the elephant in the room is deafening.
> So far on this thread Dr. Bob has 1) told me that I should have indicated that I wanted only positive responses in my thread, and 2) indicated that I should have known that I would get negative responses., otherwise, or perhaps anyway. It is as though the fact that Scott was, understandably, hurt by Lou's description of him has become my fault, and could have been prevented by me if I had done things differently. I am not at fault here in any way, and I do not believe I could have done anything which would have prevented what happened. There is an elephant in this room, and the innocent mice around the edges are being treated as though they are the problem. Sadly, "now I know" that this forum is no longer being moderated in a way that offers reasonable protection against hurt to innocent posters like Scott. In addition, allowing Lou to continue hurtful behavior without a word from administration is not doing him any favors at all. Quite the opposite - he is learning, over and over, that he does not need to care about the consequences of his actions.
