That may be so, but it's not a good enough reason to do what was done to her, and another, totally innocent person with the same name. The damage that was done to both of them FAR outweighed any offense.

And obviously you were one of them. I hope you know that her life is now pretty much in shambles, compared to what it was, because of what you and your cohorts did to her. Are you happy now? Feel better about yourselves, knowing that you totally trashed a decent, kind-hearted, well-meaning person because she "rubbed some people the wrong way", and in so doing, also destroyed someone else who was totally innocent, solely because she had the same name? You were probably the ones posting as her that Citizen mistook for her, back in the day. She WILL be vindicated one day. And those who abused her will pay the price for doing so. What goes around, comes around.

I agree with that- she seemed that way to me almost immediately, but going after her at her work place and that sex ads etc. was too much.

Yes it is, and I won't go into detail because that will just give those bastards more ammunition. Suffice to say, she has suffered more than anyone should have had to because of those bastards.

Oh yes they do. Don't let 'em fool you. But just as time heals all wounds, so to time will wound all heels. I can't wait until those bastards get theirs. What goes around, comes around.

it was straight up mean what posters did to tgp. just because she is a person of strong opinions never gives anyone the right to treat another that way.
i too, cannot wait for the time when those who did those rotten things to her get their cumupance and are exposed for bums that they are.

I would think just reading and not commenting would not be interesting enough to persist.

Wow, this is why I rarely post here anymore. You've got me tried and convicted of something that I had absoultely nothing to do with. I merely stated my opinion, right or wrong. I am sorry that she has been harassed, that's totally unjustified, and I hope that they find the person or people responsible. But because I wrote why I thought she had issues here I am one of the responsible parties, me and my "cohorts"? How quickly you launch accusations at me. Isn't that the same type of behavior that you say others were responsible for concerning your friend?

Why, yes, yes it IS the same type of behavior. But since you post using an alias, as most of the others did, and you did chime in on this post with an opinion that was the same as those who vilified her, I did jump to the conclusion that you were involved in some way, since you seem to know so much. I'm sorry if I was wrong, and I apologize. Unlike some others. BUT because you posted what you did, it seemed to me that you were justifying the why of what was done to her. IT WAS AWFUL, everything she was put through, simply because she "rubbed some people the wrong way". They had NO RIGHT to do what they did to her.
