1. I **still** do not know what negative experience you had. Remember *** I
am not attacking you but really wish to know**
Mentioning that through you work, you came to be in contact with users
or/and addicts or that one of your business partner was a cocaine user, does
not give me any info whatsoever on what negative experience might have come
out of it.

2. I am asking you to incriminate yourself ? I was not aware of it. I happen
to be someone that feely discuss just about anything with just about anyone.
Just because I am asking you something which you wouldn't want to be known,
does not imply that I am 'asking you to incriminate yourself'. Why are you
feeling attacked ? Why leave it at that ?

I really read all your previous posts in this thread and I still do not know
what exact experiences gave you the knowledge which you seem to have. I want
concrete stuff, examples, something that can widen my map. Something I can
grind on. Is that wrong ?
