> Bob made a pointed reference, in one of his responses to newwife, that by suggesting the guests go to another hotel, she'd risk the possibility of making them feel unwelcome.
What I said was:
> In that case, in this context, where arrangements don't need to be made elsewhere, wouldn't it just convey that they aren't welcome?
Meaning, my concern was that I would make posters feel unwelcome if I asked them to leave.
> given how divisive this incident has become, perhaps it would be helpful for Bob to specifically clarify to all here whether he has a mere curiosity about hotel management or if he intended, as many suspect, to criticize Jess for her suggestion.
I think there may be parallels between hotel management and board management, but my comment above specified this context. I didn't mean to criticize how Jess does her job, I just wasn't sure that approach would translate so well to this context. For one thing, her guests may appreciate having alternative arrangements made, but I can't do that.
