So now Mack is gone – totally deleted, comments, posts, everything. Way to go. I’m upset about this: not at any one person in particular (and I’m part of this group and its dynamics, too), but more at the fact that one person feels sufficiently unwelcome to want to leave entirely. You know, there aren’t actually that many people reading this site – how hard can it be for us to create a collectively welcoming place?
I was also saddened that Steve was annoyed by what Mack wrote. I don’t think you were being thin-skinned; I don’t think you should need to put up with being personally insulted when you read posts here.
Anyway. A bit sad about this.
