Corwin, I wish to say thank you for calming voice, that is good. Yet
people need to speak and speech will solve many issues among
people. It is a process where not everybody may enjoy.

I do not think that personal relationship issues should be brought in
public space. But when they are brought in public space then there
must be reason for that.

However, this mailing list has diverse group of people who cannot
account for those personal relationship.

When woman decided to bring it up, then she had to review the current
group dynamics of this mailing list and be ready for public

I don't think that she (whoever you refer to), for being a woman,
should be treated with priority, rather with equality.

IMHO, personal issues, solve it personally. Good advise for
everybody. If you bring rumours in public space, expect commenting and
public opinion. If there is anything illegal, report to authorities,
as mailing list cannot help there.

Conclusion: there was nothing illegal, personal issue was not solved
personally, it was brought to public space and people got better
understanding of it.
