Bob DeMarco's Whiteboard
Nov 29 2010 by Joyce W.

I am over shock/anger..

 

To give an explanation of actions:

 

I have access to the internet once every 3-4 weeks when my sister comes to help. It is only then(like now) that I can catch up on links sent to me... therefore what appears as "spam", is just endeavouring to contribute to many conversations that have been going on over successive days/weeks which I was unable to participate in...understand the person and their circumstances before jusgement. Thank you.
