I've typed and lost two long missives about how sorry I am that WB feels like that and about how much I will miss the generosity with which she shared her knowledge.
Also about how I really hope that my bringing certain matters into the open didn't cause the way she's feeling - I, and some others on here, have been targeted before, and I just felt that for everyone's sake there was a need to be open and honest about what was going on. I am really sorry if that was upsetting for some.
Sadly public messageboards and fora are vulnerable to the occasional visit by someone intent on having fun at the expense of others. Usually, once they are 'outed' they look elsewhere for their thrills.
This is a good forum, used in the main by kind, friendly and knowledgeable people who are happy to help others, and long may it continue.
I wish Waterbutts well, and hope that some day she will miss us, reconsider and return.
