Re: High level power abuse

I think Neil is spot on. The thread title was apparently written by "Frank" and represents his perception of what took place. His description of what was happening is lacking to form much judgement and the background of the situation is similarly missing. This could have been a horrible case of a person in power taking advantage of a weaker individual, but from what "Frank" said, we can't tell. It could just as easily have been a brotherly and supportive hug and the horror of the situation is "Frank's" overreaction. Unless "Frank" clearly knows what is going on, he should keep his own counsel, and unless it truly is a case of someone being abused, he should mind his own business. In the event that he's lost respect for the parties involved, he should dissassociate himself from them and scratch them from his Christmas card list.
