I wanted to say , its a pleasure to meet you. I read your greeting thread from a tablet but wasn't able to post in that moment but intended to, and then later, I couldn't find the thread, so I do it here, and welcome you warmly.I liked the movie, loved the book.
Sadly, I once saw a situation similar to this play out in real life.
A tight knit group of friends torn apart never to repair the damage... because isolated actions wrongly blamed on this one, then that one, dominoed thru the group until not one person was left untouched.
No, I wasn't involved, except in the end, trying to tell folks to let things ride... sigh.
Of course they didn't.
