How's it going for you right now? Is the weekend a welcome respite from the past week? In many ways I guess that can be true. We've been anxious for news of Steve and Joy and getting news from them that they survived, even if somewhat damaged, is welcome news indeed! Eman continues to slowly recover and.....well, we have a lot to be thankful for! But many don't, do they?
This weekend I think of those who've been abused by the Borg's use of shunning and all that entails and so we'll give some thought to that in this weekend's poll.
Shunning can take many forms, ranging from eyes lowered to outright violence. In case you're wondering, I've had a so-called "respectable" elder (he served as a Service Overseer) physically push into me and knocked me down. My crime? I simply said "Hello"!
How about you?
This weekend's poll question is:
What's the most severe shunning practice you've experienced?
1. Eyes lowered when meeting.
2. Stole my witnessing bag!
3. An angry scowl.
4. An abusive comment.
5. Physical attack.
6. They refused to say "Owyergoin?"
7. Smiled back.
8. Stole my children.
9. Drove their shopping trolley into mine in the supermarket.
10. Turned their back.
11. Crossed the road.
12. Never had any shunning. (I live on a desert island.)
13. Other (please detail)
So there we have it. Care to share? We're looking forward to reading your responses.
So settle down with a nice drink and........
