Fernando: I appreciate what you're saying given the limited perspective you're writing from. Yes, you never called for any airing of laundry. But at the same time you're looking for an explanation on why someone is blocked from any participation on the site. Unfortunately I cannot give one without the other. I can't publicly explain why someone is blocked, without... er... publicly explaining why someone is blocked! Hence, I say nothing. Again, I didn't start these threads. If by acting by principle I end up looking like the bad guy, then I guess that's how it has to be. It comes with the territory in my work. Sometimes you get unpleasant terrain to navigate. Cybil: I'm sorry, but I will not honour your comments with a response. It's clear you're not looking for answers or being in any way objective. Let it be known that the person in question has had it explained very clearly to them, multiple times in fact. When I mentioned about not being contacted directly, I was referring to you, in reference to the thread you started without making any attempt to ask me about the issue first.
