    Thank you for confirming my point, which you conveniently failed to include when quoting me

    DiAnna mentions three things, including one that by itself would make the suit viable (ie sexual harrassment) and instead of addressing that, you picked one mistatement (about Paula herself "utter(ing) racial slurs") and used that to dishonestly misrepresent the situation as one where there was nothing " definitive supporting the plaintive in her civil case"

    The fact is that there is plenty of facts which are "definitive" and "support the plaintiff in her civil case"

    So basically, you've shown that you've been doing something even worse than what I've accused you of up until now. Not only are you focusing on posts which incorrectly claim that Paula has uttered racial slurs and failing to point out that the case does not hinge on whether or not she uttered them, but you are also using those mistaken claims to dishonestly argue that the plaintiff has nothing to support their civil case, which is nothing but an outright lie.

    So I'll ask you again - Which is better: informing other posters of the relevant facts and helping to keep a discussion on track, or proving that someone on the Internet is wrong?

    You are a great deal better than me. I do love my butter and sauces and could never go low fat. Of course, that is why I have run 2,000 miles a year since 1976.

    is there anything to establish that she engaged in sexual harassment?

    1) Specific to her engaging in sexual harassment and using racial slurs?

    2) being that I qualified my statement with reference to her past racial remarks, it seemed rather obvious what I was referencing. Sorry if you were confused

    Or you were confused and are now trying to justify that confusion...

    ok, but I'm pretty sure it was never posted here. Maybe you are confused again, and it was actually posted elsewhere?

    I also substitute plain non-fat yogurt for some things that call for mayonnaise. Greek yogurt is the best to use because it's really thick. I use it mostly for creamy type dressings since it is kind of tangy. I wouldn't use it in tuna fish or anything though. I've used it for bleu cheese dressing, and it is delicious!

    I have already explained that as an owner, involved in the day to day operation of the business, she was responsible for the work environment.

    But once again, you're focusing on a detail instead of addressing the central issue.

    1) Specific to her engaging in sexual harassment and using racial slurs?

    2) being that I qualified my statement with reference to her past racial remarks, it seemed rather obvious what I was referencing. Sorry if you were confused
    1) As an owner, it doesn't matter if *she* made any racially or sexually inappropriate remarks.

    2) I'm not confused at all. I clearly understand that you are focusing on proving that "someone on the internet is wrong", instead of focusing on the case itself

    You've been pretty sure of several things that are not true.
