Emily Fisher !

You’re here!!!!!!

I almost missed the comment too! I didn’t get a notification. It’s kind of like Quora here in that notifs frequently don’t work.

If you want to make sure I see a comment, click the @ button when you’re writing a message, and start to type my name, just like on Quora. Then select my name from the dropdown list.

So far, I’ve never seen a mention fail to get a notification.

I was very glad to repost that Catholic priest answer.

People don’t want to here the truth about the systematic evil practiced by many members of the clergy of the Catholic Church, but I lived through a lot of it personally.

I was there.

I know it’s true.

I experienced it darkly, intimately, directly, and often daily.

Quora can call my personal memories “hate speech” if they like, but I know with absolute certainty that what I’ve written is actually “truth speech.”

I was there.

It happened.

And that’s all there is to it.
