Thanks for the report
It wasn't a PM. I give my personal e-mail to people here from time to time. A few of them have made me regret it. It's nothing that different from some of the comments you see in open threads - it just gets a little more personal when it's someone who I tried to help out, and when it comes in on my personal e-mail account. Maybe that's dumb.
There was a guide who was accused of killing pelicans, and a bunch of people here were doing their best to make sure he lost all his clients, smearing his reputation, etc. I suggested that it's best not to hold a lynching before a man has had his day in court, and that being accused is not the same thing as being guilty. And people went nuts. That's when the nastygrams started. I didn't think I sad anything that controversial, but there is an attitude that has taken root in this country that I don't even understand. I'm sure some people would say that it's my fault for giving out my e-mail address.
LOL... later I suggested that not all people who home school their kids are nutjobs, and that not all kids with ADHD are brats with discipline problems. Those things also make a lot of people angry. But it's not just me. You see those nasty responses in a lot of threads. It seems like some people are just waiting for their chance to jump on someone. I'm not going to cry for a moderator to make it stop - I just move on and go catch some fish or something.
