The exact words:

She was subsequently assured that she had nothing to be ashamed of, since casual subconscious flirting between people slightly bored by their surroundings who would never take it any further given the genuine lack of means, motive, and opportunity does not now and would not ever constitute a reason to feel such a thing.

The ears of SiaO are open, and one never knows what might be overheard....


The various characters in Unicode are ashamed at even the implied sponsorship caused by letters being used to represent the words in this post
