In her thread about her daughter's difficulties, Solstice has repeatedly expressed just how disturbing Lou's posts are to her. She has been extremely clear about just why she feels this way.
I feel this is a clear request to you, Dr.Bob, to find a way help Lou moderate his disturbing posts. This seems much more serious than just incivility; Lou is repeatedly causing distress to Solstice at a time when she is already under severe stress from a flare-up of her daughter's illness. I realize that it is very difficult to find an equitable solution in this situation. Still, I think a good place to start is to return to your long-standing principle that posters do not have unlimited rights to freedom of speech here. I feel certain that you will have the backing of the great majority of the community if you take some moderate, reasonable action in this situation.
Please consider this seriously, Dr. Bob. Thank you.
