Nice post Share. I'm sure Robin will be along with his apologies for making you feel as though the phrase was the best way to express it.
Oddly enough the committee giving lip-service to defending Robin's honor have dragged out the discussion 777 months now, making it a MUCH bigger part of Robin's online legacy than it would have been if they had just brought up their objections and then DROPPED it. But their desire to get you to say "uncle" was too strong, so they ended up shredding the doggy pull toy they claimed they were protecting. The chances that this term will be found by anyone looking up Robin are now EXPONENTIALLY bigger through their diligence. I'm sure he appreciates their HELP! On the other hand, as you mentioned, this will probably not be the thing that swings their vote in one direction or another about the guy. --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, Share Long <sharelong60@...> wrote: > > Ok, Judy, apologies accepted, thank you.Â Moving on, you think I was wrong > when I said psychologically raped to Robin.Â I think I was emotionally > upset, as well as overwhelmed by many other inputs.Â I think I was lacking > in psychological development.Â I think I was lacking in certain > communication skills. > > Nonetheless I think my POV is more accurate and inclusive of the whole truth > than yours.Â And my inner Xeno is smiling wryly about that.
