Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you think mutual respect and trust have broken down, Frank, why are you here?

(No, that is not to be read as hostile. It's a serious question).

Doing his own thing from the bunker, like everyone else?

because trust is a renewable resource?

if ET is a debating machine, there a few fuels that gum up the works, maybe it'll keep maturing to a level where it can process those too.

ET will never be an absolute. more than retreating bruised to emo-bunkers, i think it's backing off for better perspective, and to sharpen communication skills.

if someone misunderstands you, it's your responsibility to communicate better, here is the school we maybe didn't find 'at school'.

ability to let go of hard feelings easily is the sign of a mature ego, imo.

now if i could just pull it off as easy as type it!
