Quote of the Day

Once blackmailers see that their target's guilt can serve them, time becomes irrelevant.  If there's no recent incident to peg their guilt and blame-peddling on, one from the past will do just fine.  There's no point at which a guilt-producing event is allowed to diminish and reparations are considered fully made.  Blackmail targets discover that whatever their real or imagined transgression may be, there is no statute of limitations -- no point after which an ancient "crime" ceases to be an issue, or a punishable offense.

-- Susan Forward with Donna Frazier, Emotional Blackmail, p. 56
