I would be the last person to advocate any particular level of English composition skills requirement. And, again, if I misread Mr. Hurney's post, I apologize. On the other hand, while this and other forums afford us a freedom of communication our founding fathers would find remarkable (and I hope embrace), free speech has never meant speech without constraint.
If I overreacted to Mr. Hurney, it was because too often we blame victims for being, well victims. And though there are clearly cases were these recollections of past abuse are either fantasy, suggestion of some well meaning therapist, or blatant attempts at extortion, there are cases where persons were abused as children and the only defense available was to suppress the hurt and suffering; to bury the pain and anger so deeply that even after thirty years it remains an ever present scar that cannot heal.
Lori's rage, the impetus of this thread, is shared by anyone with any sense of morality and decency. That she has also tempered her rage with compassion for the victims seems similarly a response we can all applaud.
I also share Mr. Hurney's frustration with those that would abuse the courts for their own gain. But, I am very grateful that those courts are there, and that those courts are open to all, even the idiots. While the courts cannot change the past for those who have been victims, the judicial system can provide some closure.
