And since it is about me and my experience I do believe I have the right to ask that it end now. And if one just decides to continue posting about it I believe that is nothing less than disrespectful and rude. If you would like to continue discussing points brought up here, not my experience specifically, then start another thread, another topic.
Move on. Please.
I think you can ask a mod to lock this thread. Threads do have a mind of thier own - and you apparently hit on a topic of great interest
It seems the trhead has become more about abstract issues (stangers, boundaries, safty, modern society's fear) than about a specific incident you are working through, though as long as this thread is open, there will be a percentage of posters who read your op and post a response (not reading through the entire thread). Only way to stop that is to ask the thread to be closed.
Sorry your birthday sucked, BTW
