  •  I don't think it's the worst thing that ever (0+ / 0-)

    happend to a person, no, I don't. Not the right thing to do, but there are worse things also.  And, actually, that is the opinion of a very decent human being, FYI.

      but until it reaches the level of the worst thing that ever happened to a person we can gloss over it? YMMV I think that is despicable.
