I did a reality-check before I first started posting. I knew that there would be people who wouldn't like what I said, how I said it or would simply think I'm a putz. I honestly don't care about their secret thoughts or gossip. If someone confronts me directly (hasn't happened yet but it may), I'll give their thoughts serious consideration and then decide if and what I'll do about it. Gossip is a fact of life, as distasteful as it is. Gossip in a non-private forum such as this is just plain stupid.
I don't mean to trivialize your feelings in any way. I realize your feelings are important. I hope the gossips realize how foolish their behavior is, and one of the consequences they'll face is not being taken seriously.
