or, more likely, get dragged into someone else's drama or cause bad feelings for interjecting myself in someone else's personal life, when i'm not a part of that personal life. i'm just a long time friend. not an intimate one. so there is a compunction to leave it alone.
or, more likely, have it be a thing that festers in the friendship of the first mentioned friend and defects it forever, and i hate losing friends. that's why i don't want to get involved.
so could everyone who's posted a private email not do that so much anymore?
