The newish player, Theresa, is not actually complaining about it.
If you came to my home to play some game you'd never tried before with a group of total strangers, and my old friend of 20 years was kind of annoying you but everybody else took the behavior as normal, would YOU speak up right away?
A lot of people would feel like they were the troublemaker if they said something in a group like that, and so instead they'll either just stop showing up, or suffer in silence for a while in hopes it goes away and THEN just stop showing up.
Remember, every time Josh does something and you don't intervene, you are announcing to everyone (including both Josh and Theresa) that the behavior is normal and acceptable. Speaking out to say that you're bothered by behavior that the group you're in is labeling as normal and acceptable is not something most people will do.
