I have removed the distracting soft deleted noise posts and resultant collateral comments that littered this thread. Let me make one thing perfectly clear, the reasons for proceeding with caution concerning this matter were clearly outlined from the very beginning, and this is nothing that should have been approached brashly, or against the wishes of those victims involved.
To have begun this process earlier would have solicited it's share of derision for "jumping the gun". It will always be damned if you do, damned if you don't from some. The staff shoulders no blame whatsoever in this. I was the go to Admin for those seeking restitution, and handled the delicate matter as prudently as possible.
Spiteful comments from the peanut gallery by one individual who has an unrelated perceived slight, but absolutely no dog in the fight, will not be tolerated. You have received beau coups warning to cease, and managed to cause the staff additional unwarranted work. Step away from the keyboard, take a deep breath, and collect your decorum.
99.99% of the membership appear to "get" the point of this thread.
Now, let's return to helping get this situation at hand resolved in a mature manner, and not get sidetracked by collateral foolishness that only serves to take attention away from the real problem.
Anyone with comments or questions outside the OP's actual topic can PM myself to discuss. The rest of the staff should be spared.
