In the (now-deleted) comments to a prior post (link), I decided to remove the thread because of suspicious activity. After carefully investigating the IP addresses, language and timing, I have discovered that there were two IP addresses that appeared with multiple aliases, one in the US and one in Israel, both writing negatively about Dr. Sharon Flatto. I had to remove all the comments and for that I apologize to readers and commenters. I also apologize to Dr. Sharon Flatto for being unfairly maligned on this website.

Please note that comments are disabled on this post to prevent baseless speculation. I also ask that you not discuss it in another comments thread on this blog.
