As I stated with my name I am confused!!! Why start a discussion on here if you are not going to be open to all comments? Its bad enough that this entire site is anonymous. Everyone (yes, including me) can hide behind a false name. Just because someone holds a different opinion than what you were searching for now you decide to take it down. Seems kinda like bullying to me! It didn't go your way so you bullied the "system" & took it down.

I have an idea. If after you start a subject & then you learn all the facts or just flat out realize you were wrong, don't take it down! Own up to it! Even better, apologize for it. It may make a difference to the person you wronged in the first place. Its not like anyone knows who you are anyway.

First of all NO ACCUSATIONS WERE MADE AGAINST THE COACH! What was stated was that my grandson was bullied and lost interest in playing on the team and was cut by the coach. My contention is that bullying is still going on in school and school related activities. I believe it should be a policy that there be zero tollerance of bullying under all circumstances. If the coach took my comments personally I am sorry as I wasn't directly singling him out and if you read what I wrote you know that. The only way he could assume that I was is that there was some guilt on his conscience. It is my hope that there is awareness that bullying is an ongoing problem and needs to be addressed. I asked Topix to pull my thread because my family was getting a backlash from the coach and parents and that was not my intent. I do not appologize for posting because I did not accuse anyone of anything. If anyone feels offended it is their conscience that has offended them, not me.

Unfortunately, many of us didn't get a chance to read what you wrote, because you had the thread removed.

By "backlash," I assume you mean that the coach and parents bullied you into removing the thread.

Please do not "confuse" my original message. I have no direct knowledge of the bullying or incedents alleged against your grandson. As I stated, I can speak knowing how the program is run. The entire EF soccer coaching staff would never allow any bullying!! When my children participated in the program they were lectured numerous times about team unity & togetherness. Now I am not stupid, of course there is oppprtunity for such behavior to go on without the coaching staff seeing it. I simply stated they wouldn't allow it. In your original post you did accuse the coach of "cutting" your grandson from the team, & I believe that is the only thing I directly point out to you & asked you to get your facts straight (before you had the entire post removed).#FACT - the soccer teams DO NOT cut!! I only point this out because if you were told that he was cut, what else were you told that is incorrect???

Well Confused, the reason people post here is because they can feel better about themselves by insulting others, making libelous claims, and other general stupidity with impunity by using a fake name. In fact, you can even use someone else's name and get your friends and coworkers in trouble. There is no need to be knowledgeable or even aware of the topic. So, it's the ideal site for people who are both mean and stupid, but who love to gossip! Great, huh?

(P.S.They will probably have to Google "impunity" and "libelous" because most of them are still working on the G.E.D.)

My intent was to bring awareness to an ongoing problem, bullying. I named the place it happened to inform the coaches that there was a problem that needs addressed. I in no way blamed them or insinuated that they were condoning such behavior, as I don't believe that they would. So my message to all teachers, coaches, scout leaders or anyone working with our youth, let's ban together to eliminate bullying and make youth activities safe for all children.
