Falsely accuse? polly7 Jun 2015 #50
Polly, I'm very sorry for your loss BainsBane Jun 2015 #52
There is absolutely zero excuse for the obvious mocking reply directly to you marym625 Jun 2015 #119

I took that to be about the PMs she sent around BainsBane Jun 2015 #99
I'd give him the BOTD that he only read the first line of her post before responding. Warren DeMontague Jun 2015 #103
Simple human empathy would have been for Steve ( in 86-89 exchange) to at least acknowledge her loss Lars39 Jun 2015 #109

The problem is she is blaming another member BainsBane Jun 2015 #89
I responded to that upthread. Warren DeMontague Jun 2015 #91
And cropping the February date out of the first screenshot is the appropriate response jeff47 Jun 2015 #108
It's a misrepresentation. And it's not right. Warren DeMontague Jun 2015 #112
It was from a different thread. polly7 Jun 2015 #116
I understand. Warren DeMontague Jun 2015 #118
Sound and thoughtful points BainsBane Jun 2015 #130
That is the entire truth right there. Bonobo Jun 2015 #114
No, but he was unkind to her. Really pushed her when he should have backed off. madfloridian Jun 2015 #105
Things were said that obviously touched that open wound for her. TDale313 Jun 2015 #113
