Yes Kate was a very committed greenie. I think she was some kind of consultant and lived in Tas. Her husband worked a lot overseas.

I had a few discussions with her back on Big Pong which I thought were respectful despite the fact that we were of differing opinions.

When she decided to join us here on FDNC I bent over backwards to make her feel welcome and treated her with respect.

Perhaps she thought that I was picking on her due to our differing opinions, and despite me sending her a number of emails to assure her that was not the case, she then started trolling my posts and in my opinion attacking them in a personal manner.

That was when I decided I was no longer going to waste my time and effort in trying to keep the peace. That if anyone wants to take everything the wrong way and chooses to take offence, it is not my problem but theirs.

I can recall that she was also quite aggressive with her comments on a few of Alicia's posts, so I was not the only one she had it in for.

"...and who do you think have been out there helping you to "Clean Up Australia" Bear ?? It's certainly not the far right wing fundamentalists."

Politics never got a mention, there were no far right or far left 'regressives' Bill, if any of them showed the Bear would have bagged em and tagged em... (some things just cannot be recycled)

So, Kate acted without fear, or favour? Tell me, is this the woman that ALWAYS seconded Bill's posts, no matter what?

Devil’s advocate, a person who advocates an opposing or unpopular cause for the sake of argument or to expose it to a thorough examination. I think it originates in the Catholic church as an appointment to do with investigating a person who has been nominated for beatification. Just so that no-one thinks I have accused Bill of being a Satanist.

As I think more about it, I remember that Kate, to my knowledge, never ONCE conceded a point, even when points were proven beyond a doubt. Yes, I remember in particular, there was a time when I posed some reasonable questions, because I didn't agree with her comments. Guess what happened? Nothing! I received no answer.....just ran away! 🤔
