For several years, Ourecho has been enjoyed by many people, world wide. Many of the members have become like family. Friendships have bloomed and writing skills have developed and improved. Writers of all ages have filled its pages.

OURECHO is a really good thing.

I read with sadness and dismay the paragraph by Scott, the founder of Ourecho on the home page that some one has been using Ourecho to make threats against other people.

To do such a thing is childish and immature at best. There is no logical reason for someone to stoop so low. And for what? What could anyone possibly gain by doing such a thing? Absolutely nothing can or will be gained, but much can be lost, especially to the innocent.

It will be a terrible loss to hundreds of innocent people if this site has to be terminated. For it to have to be terminated because of someone being childish and immature, probably with psychological problems will be a tragedy.

I sincerely hope that whoever has been doing this will realize how foolish and irresponsible they have been to do this thing. There is no justification for it whatsoever.
