The forum rules:
To quote some one else who asks it better than me:1. Do no damage.
2. Interpret rule 1 with the broadest scope of inclusion for people, places, things, encouragement, and personal well-being.
On a personal level I am disturbed by this being perceived and considered damaging.Was what he said considered damaging? he didn't coddle them or say anything light hearted and flowery, but at the same time he didn't say anything that would be considered wishing them any sort of ill will either.
