Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You know, I was going to butt out of the thread but I find this May I suggest Jerome provides some off site background on how life has treated me lately to help you understand objectionable on several levels. If you are looking for community support having Jerome explain your private life to a select few over e-mail is not really going to cut it, and it's just going to make everyone feel awkward about inadvertently spilling the beans in a careless comment [I know e-mail/blog crossover is a huge headache for me already under ordinary unemotional circumstances]. Plus, you're dumping responsibility for fallout from this comment thread on Jerome, who had nothing to do with it and has enough on his real-life plate, too, as you surely know.

[BTW, the dinner invitation seems more appropriate than ever, seeing as though there is an off-site conversation to be had]

I was going to leave it at that as well, until I saw your comment, and would like to respond on a few points :
-Interpretation that I dump responsibility on Jerome is indeed to be put at your credit (you may remember the two of us tend to step in to defend Jerome while he is well placed to do so by himself when he feels it needed) but in the present situation, inaccurate ;
-What I went through is definitely too private to be displayed in such a wide space (as you pointed out, here are more than 2000 members) ;
-I did not mean to exclude anyone by discriminating between those who I could confide in and the others ; I apologise if that's what you sensed ;
-It drives me too emotional to talk and, worse, write about it, so I thought someone could sum it up in a less sensitive way than I would do ;
The last thing I would wish is add weight to anyone's burden, especially Jerome's.

I don't think weighting who has more on their real-life plate leads us anywhere, especially with the distinct degrees of information at hand.
Okay, I give you a break with innuendos if you stop making them. It is truly offending to hint that I would put my interests before anyone's difficulties/distress. Lack of modesty does not imply utter selfishness.
I suggest a truce for now.

I never said anything about who has more on their plate.
