I have said before that I do not wish to play defence lawyer to anyone. I am not playing devil's advocate either. But frankly I find this picking on Lisa to be offensive and whilst Dr E puts it in terms that make it appear to be an offer to discuss, I think this is sophistry and against his own 'personal attack' rules. In spirit, if not in black-letter.
You might want to check with your trusty steed and ask him if he thinks you might be acting a bit on the chivalrous side
By her efforts to clean up the mess she has left she has in fact gathered a good deal of respect from the members here who see her efforts as being an indication that she wants to communicate
Maybe I am naive, but I do not understand how this thread could at all be trashing Ikanneg. It is asking her to discuss a subject and hopefully prevent the discussion from fading into other people bickering, which often happens with good debate on any discussion board. I also do not understand why she would refuse this offer. It would be a thread in which she could present her views clearly, with only one other person presenting a counter argument. I hate to say it, but maybe she is avoiding this because she would be forced to defend her statements? When there is only one person asking limited questions, you must respond to all questions and back up your statements. When there are tons of people asking you tons of questions, you can pick and choose to which questions you would like to respond.
1) she wanted to leave after all those empty promises she made (because of her job that "suddenly" took so much more time)
Yes, Roy. it is only words on a screen. Even just electrons. And they can do no harm. Or can they? There is an extremely small but non-zero chance that, through a Quantum Mecahnical process know as tunneling, that this computer screen and its message may spontaneously disappear from its present location and reappear at random in any place in the universe, including your next-door neighbor's water closet or even that of another reader/contributor to this board.
