I just had very good conversation offline with two list members about this
matter. I want to address here why I feel the way I do about this thread.
I'm sure I seem the Picasso evil devil but that is not true.
A person's troubles should be addressed offlist for many reasons. First of
all, privacy. A person troubled may not realize how public making private
affairs open to the world can be or how potentially damaging that can be to
him/herself or the one trying to help.
As well few, have had the brains to realize that trying to help someone
publically may only makes the situation worse for the person down the line.
Think twice people.
