Thank you for this kind note Alison Tennent. Your contributions were beyond reproach and much appreciated.
As you say, we give writers full freedom. They are welcome to participate and leave any time they want. They can write for other publications and create their publications. I amplify their stories and respect them. What else do they expect?
The more they gossip the more writers and reader we have. Karma works. Boomerang effect is real as we experience in downunder.
