Re: Unethical Sensei

ROBERT, yes, that was directed to you. You described a situation in a relatively unclear manner and asked for advice. People started giving you advice based entirely on what you described and you clearly began taking offense. Then you changed the description of the scenario significantly and appeared to become even more offended to the point where you suggested you were going to leave the discussion. Several people gave you advice that could prove helpful - myself included and now you appear angry, or at least disappointed.

I understand both ethical and unethical behavior.
I understand substance abuse.
I understand violence.
I understand abuse based on power.
I understand what whistleblowing is, both in spirit and by legal definition.
I understand human frailty.
I DON'T understand the situation you keep describing differently.
I DON'T understand your apparent anger and disappointment.

Good luck with whatever it is you are trying to address.
