AV, a lot of your points are valid and we can discuss them privately if you want.
A couple of things that I have to directly take issue with though:
" I shared this with the original group & invited everyone."
Well, not everyone, which is fine because everyone doesn't get along, and you know, FB isn't life. But it's inaccurate to say that it was all-inclusive by saying "Well I invited you and you didn't want to go!" That's not fair.
For the record, I'm not a part of any groups related to LL. I was at one point part of FOLL, and others related to LL, but not any longer - this has been so for a long, long time now.
"A few had gone paranoid thinking this was a bash-lash group [......] This was not the case"
I'm disappointed that, since you say I know how you feel about me, that apparently you think I'm some kind of naive chucklehead that would believe that there's no bashing/trashing that goes on there.
I'm sorry that you find the term "FOOL" offensive. Personally I don't feel there's any reason to be offended by it; Hell, even when I was in FOLL I called it FOOL. I thought it was an amusing typo, and it doesn't say anything about the creators or the participants -- they speak well enough on their own, don't they?
As for being amused/not amused by some of my comments, hey, you just can't please everyone. If I had to water down the things I say (online and offline) then that would make life pretty dull.
There are other things that probably would do well to be made public, but I'd rather we just settled this between you and I.
