It's too late at night for me to get into it in detail, but the newly released boy scout information has helped me to think through what happened to me even though my abuser was not on the list. Look at it this way. The very fact that he was NOT on the list gives me a bunch of new information. Call it the "negative space" of circumstance. However, abuse within scouting was not talked about during the years I was in scouting. There was a lot of abuse going on then. The other scout troop in town was led by a parasitic pedophile. Notice that area or region were correlated with what and when information was released. Also it may well develop that my abuser was part of a sex ring abusing boys in that wider area.
