Leeneia, nothing inherently wrong when you say

Hi, Lizzie. It's nice to have you back... ...Mudcat is basically a good place you know, except for the passel of rogues referred to as The Usual Suspects. They like to form squads and attack people - it's adolescent behavior, really.

but I suggest you look at the rant of 10 Nov 15 - 04:19 AM and the subsequent new thread to explain why Lizzie often receives such treatment. I think 'attack' in this context is an incorrect term as when such rants are voiced the replies are, more often than not, a defence or simply trying to put the hyperbole in more reasonable terms. In my opinion that is.

Matt - Not just the cases you mention. I am astounded that some people will happily accept that Savile was everything that has been said about him, without the benefit of a fair trial, yet after such a trial they still believe that Harris is innocent. The circumstances are no different apart from Savile can no longer defend himself. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that either are innocent or guilty. Simply pointing out the inconsistent approach to historic evidence that lay people have. Which is why it must only be ever handled by the judiciary. Flawed as that may be.
