Certainly the silent treatment when deployed in the ways depicted in this article is not an effective way to deal with conflict, and could certainly be considered as abusive in many cases. But I am not sure that "the silent treatment" and "ostracism" are the same thing, and I'm not sure the situation is always so cut and dried. I am curious about what happens when a community member is being abusive to *others* in the community and refuses to engage in any efforts toward accountability and/or is continuing the harmful behavior. Is social ostracism not warranted in extreme cases such as this? Certainly nothing to be used lightly and without extensive efforts at alternate solutions. But I'm not sure that ostracism is always abusive. Curious what others think. -- Tom Smyth Worker-Owner, Sassafras Tech Collective Specializing in innovative, usable tech for social change sassafras.coop · @sassafrastech Pronouns: he/him
