Accusations are made in different forms.
The bravest form of accusation used to be court cases. That's when you back your arguments with proofs. But with the court cases piling up over the years, the people who accused forget all about it.
Accusations are made face-to-face - like they have in our TV serials and movies. Accusations of these kinds are like ripples on the surface of water. They produce more disturbance than the depth.
The worst form of accusations are gossips. Say anything about anyone in any damn way you think of. Imagination soars high as people vent their frustration and jealousy.
Accusations of this form hurt. And people who do that are the ones I hate.
