Oh dear, this is the first I've heard of this. In his defence I would have to say that tel is a really nice bloke. I've always found him to be as polite respectful helpful and as kind as everyone else here. I can only speak from my own experience on "brush", it's not my place to speak on behalf of others, so I would like to say that I have found myself explaining my own comments on two occasions so far which I assume were not reported as I would have heard about it. I have come to realise that misunderstandings can and do arise here very easily due to language barriers, where your comments can be misinterpreted. One of my comments left the other member thinking I thought their painting was terrible when in fact I thought it was wonderful, and the other was just my sense of humour which was misunderstood. The language barrier was to blame for both of them. And when that happens, at least when it happened to me, both times I really wanted to put it right straight away, I felt hurt that others had taken me the wrong way. But again, due to language barriers, I didn't find it easy to do that. I only offer two things, one is my paintings for discussion, and the other is friendship. I don't know what happened between tel and the other member, I didn't see the comment, but he should not be left feeling miserable or out of the loop just because someone possibly misunderstood, or was possibly over sensitive. Generally speaking, it does seem that you can't say anything these days without offending someone however unintentional that might be, which is a shame, but this is where we are. I know I have a sense of humour that some may appreciate and others may not. I could have said about one of tel's paintings that one of his characters looks like Stan Laurel, I wanted to but I didn't, I'm fairly sure he would have found that funny, but he might not have. How could I know? We just have to use our own judgement, and I hope we will continue to do so as this is something we seem to be less and less allowed to do as time goes by. I have seen members comment many times on the wonderful community we have here, and I agree with that wholeheartedly. Let's not spoil it. All I would ask is that before reacting in haste, anyone feeling upset by someone else's comment might take the time to try to work it out before pressing the report button, and keep that option for serious complaints. (as they say in the movies, no offence was intended in the making of this comment).
