I can’t believe I’m doing this. This is against so much of who I want to show up as in this world.

First let me say that I enjoyed Kimberly’s piece immensely. Lon experienced it differently than I did and he commented. Kimberly responded. End of story.

But I have a real problem with you showing up from out of nowhere with your character assassination aspirations, targeting someone who contributes volumes to this platform.

When I first got here I did what you’re doing, so I understand. I commented on a thread without knowing all of the information and like you, I made an ass of myself.

But you don’t know any of the players here, so the use of words like “roach” and “troll” is not only incredibly ugly, it is out of context.

The writer you speak of is neither of those things. He spoke his mind and he received his answers and your unsolicited maligning of his character based upon one comment among thousands of contributed articles was low.

Maybe you can learn from my mistakes and find out a little about the people you are blindly insulting before you publish a scathing opinion of them.


I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
