All the recent evidence suggests Lindsey has been the accommodating one.
Sometimes there's a breaking point. When you're 70 two years may be too long. Hell, two hours may be too long. I'm beginning to think that was the case at Music Cares.

Why can't we have a discussion about this? JimSATX didn't accuse Lindsey of sexaul assault. Ignoring an issue doesn't make it go away. Part of the problem is that this is an issue that was swept under the carpet for so long.

Also, just a note about this thread in general: I know this board is built for nothing but idle speculation, but given the gravity of a topic like the #MeToo movement, I'd be remiss if I didn't encourage folks to use their best judgment when posting about this. Sexual assault and harassment are immensely serious topics, and I worry that tossing out speculation like this runs the risk of diminishing the stories of the women (and men) who have come forward. Just my 2 cents.
Still it's relevant and timely.

Ken Caillat's book is quite illuminating on this as well.

You are LINKING Lindsey with SEXUAL ASSAULT. THAT is the me too movement. He has NEVER been accused of that. Even though you want it to be true, that doesn't make it right. Your obsession with Stevie is making you want this to be true.

Thank you. Also Carol has said she is writing a follow up. She showed up on Facebook after a long absence due to some health issues. I asked if she was writing the book still but didn't get response.

Can we just let go of the whole I used to be a Stevie fan pretense? No one's really buying it.

There's a career for you in reading tea leaves, crystal balls and magic eight balls. Where in the world did he say that? He didn't. Stop twisting and putting words in people's mouths so to speak. We can see what he said. It's right there in black and white.

You're a real piece of work.

I think what the other side is saying is that it's not relevant because #MeToo is about sexual assault, and there's never been any whispers of that kind of behavior involving any members of the band to date. So while #MeToo might be relevant and timely, it's not with regards to Fleetwood Mac.

How do we know that?

Um, see the question mark at the end? It's not a statement. I'm trying to figure what the connection is between Carol Ann Harris's book and Lindsey's firing. Seems dubious, but feel free to elaborate on that.

And you may have the same calling yourself, considering all the leaps you make.

I never linked Lindsey with sexual assault. You did.

Are you f@cking kidding me right now? That is the very definition of disgusting. Why in God's name would I or anyone for that matter want someone to be a rapist? Do you realize what you're saying? You didn't think before you posted that did you? Why are YOU so opposed to this discussion? Does it make YOU uncomfortable?

Tarot cards. I love them but mostly for the cool artwork.
