Nothing that is posted in a public forum is private or confidential - there is no expectation of privacy on a public message board. RLH came to this site and posted a point by point refutation of an article based on an interview she granted to a legitimate newspaper. Later she posted a letter she said she'd written and emailed to the editor of that newspaper.
This is a legitimate news story that I am following up. Had I simply given the url of Robin's post and not pasted it into an email, it would have been the same thing. But how can I ask the editor of the Life section to comment on Robin's statements if she can't read them?
I've not set out to embarrass anyone. I'm simply following through a story that I find utterly fascinating.
