> Lou is responsible for his own actions. Others are responsible for their actions. You said "Everytime lou is here there are issues, long threads, multiple replies, requestes to clarify everything." Are you saying that if someone has a style of communicating that others find difficult, it's ok to declare open season on them?
No, I think that StJames is saying that Lou's passive aggressiveness is very bad for many people on this board. I really believe that in my heart of hearts Lou means to hurt people here. I believe he is a predator. I know you have a soft spot in your heart for him. I find him as a passive-aggressive predator.
> Tolerance for differences is a noble attribute, and one that Lou displayed far more than most people I know. I found much to respect about Lou. And if he was hurt and angry and defensive after coming back from his last block.... Well, I probably wouldn't have come back myself, but if I had, I'd have probably been hurt and angry and defensive too.
I never once saw Lou tolerate any difference from any of his opininions. What I was was someone who passively-aggressively pursued people who he felt were vulnerable to his subtle attacks.
I fully agree with Dr. Bob and his close to a year blocking of Lou. Finally we will be free of passive-aggressive assaults, for at least 48 weeks.
Yes, we will have to agree to disagree. And I will not comment anymore due to Lou's inability to respond. I just wanted to support Dr. Bob in his decision.
