well said, as I understand it.. true, normally I would not take an activist role but there are other things at play that require it. I do have people following this thread, vulnerable people, who are faced with such trauma and despair, only amplified by the severely ignorant and extremely abusive ranting of an obsessed moderator. They are incensed by the irresponsibility of Bells posts. They are angry that Bells is allowed by sciforums to post against any rules of respectful conversation. If legal action were feasible they would take it. (still possible I might add) The days of hates speech wrapped up in ad hominen with impunity are coming to an end. Digital monitoring affords adequate surveillance for such things as you know doubt have read in the media.
