This thread has completed the task it was designed for.
It brought attention to an issue, encouragement for moving forward, ideas of how to address specific post, allowed some to vent, has underscored the few that have toxic ideas and feel a need to vent in a public forum and specifically addressed forum rules and consequences.
In regards to personal attacks, I don't respond in the public forum, I always encourage PM or face to face meetings, if not I can only assume the other party isn't looking for a solution.
For those of you who have dropped off because of drama, I hope to see you post more. I am encouraged by the PMs I have received.
Here's to a great Summer!
