Judy, today is my first check in for a long time, so I can't comment on recent board happenings. However, I have noticed, over the more than 2.5 years of participating on this board that negativity/hostility ebbs and flows. It got really horrible for a while, if you remember--prompting me to take a hiatus because I felt attacked by a particular poster. Then it became much more peaceful, in part due to Dr. Bob having separated out the different boards, so that complaints about process went to the administration board. Perhaps you got used to the relative peacefulness, and now a cycle of negativity is around? I don't know (as I said, I can't gauge how negative because I haven't been around and even when I was, I was not paying attention to a lot because my time on the board is limited).
Another possibility is that you are in a more peaceful place and have more pressing priorities, which can sometimes make stuff like that stand out more? Again, just a thought.
