Hi Dona, this is Tonya. I have a message for Joe and I don't mean to sound rude. I don't know if you're a guy or if you're a girl but it doesn't matter. I heard your comment and I'm gonna say that if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it at all or send it to her privately off list. Remember in the constitution it says something on the terms of that a member can be suspended for putting down other members or something like that. I think it's what the whole thing is on that you know and stuff like that. So if you wanna keep yourself out of trouble perhaps maybe you should learn to exercise better judgment you know and maybe apologize, that would be helpful okay. I mean this is not your little world that you're living in okay. So I don't think you have any right to say stuff like that, I really don't. And I mean I'm sure she's very hurt by it and I would be too. So you know I mean I don't know who you think you are but I mean just cool it.
