Lar, I also agree that you have earned my trust. Not only as a person, or as a person who has the best interests of the board at heart, but as a person who has respect for the civility rules and civility in general. I have long thought that Dr. Bob has misinterpreted your posts and I tell him so regularly. I have argued your blocks most vociferously.
I don't really see the parallel here though. I think Dr. Bob saw a photo of a man falling under an avalanche of paperwork, not the photo of a man with anything to his throat. His image was not inherently uncivil IMO. When my husband saw the photo, without any preconceptions of what it was, he saw books and papers. In fact he saw a date book at the top with writing at the top and bottom of the cover.
Moreover, Dr. Bob did in effect comply with a Please Restate. He apologized and explained the innocuous content of the photo.
But I have no desire to argue with you on the topic, Lar, and would be more than happy to agree to disagree.
