    Gary Blansky asks, "where does it say not to shame someone? where does 
it say not to wrong someone in speech?"
    An often-cited text concerns publicly embarrassing another (hamalbin 
pnei chavero barabim).
    See M. Avot 3:14(11) and 2:13(10); TB Berachot 43b; Rambam, Mishneh 
Torah, Sefer Hamada, Hilchot Deot, 6:11.
