Malicious Comments Are Only the Tip of the Iceberg
She’s been in the church for a long time and participates in the evangelism in the church groups. Therefore, she is an active member helping others through her comments. Everybody knows her because she is part of the Youth Group. She tries to attend all the events, and she helps as much as she can. But there is an issue!

Remember: We need to watch our comments!
