But when I pushed him on this (with a little too much snark, it would seem) - after all, he hadn't defriended me, although I'd defriended him for being annoying a couple of months ago - he got angry and defensive.
It was over the top and out of character, even for you. I thought you had truly went psycho.

I'm a horrible, awful person at times, and I freely confess it. Hell, I even like being horrible and awful.
This is called passion. It's ok to be evil...sometimes.

But injustice bothers me more than I like to admit. And this was injustice. Whatever my flaws (and I have many), I will always stand up to fight against what I perceive as unfair treatment.
This is yet again an example of your passion.

I am very happy that you stand up for what you believe in and will fight for it, even if it means a fight-to-the-death. This is one of your most redeeming features, one that makes me feel very warm inside when I think about you. Please, for the love of God, do not ever change this way about you. Just pick and choose your battles wisely.

But by the same tolken, I've made my mind up on the issue that sparked this whole debacle in the first place. I have explained my position on the matter and will not waiver from it. If this is to be the straw that breaks the camel's back between you and I, so be it. If that's what's written, that's what's written.

We've now played ehowton's little game and he's had his amusement. It is time to make our decisions. I await your riposte.

You must be joking. You thought my remarks there were worse than previous comments I'd made to you? Although, that said, I do apologise for calling you a "spreading red stain on the white dress of humanity", which was excessively rude, despite it being what I was thinking at the time.

I do indeed pick and choose my battles wisely. Someone being hated by a group of others, the same way the victim of your accusations is disliked by many reading this very journal, doesn't entitle them to less justice and less defence than anyone else. In fact, in some ways, such people need my words more, for who shall speak for the voiceless if not someone who would fight injustice?

I don't need to like someone to dislike what I see done to them. And your brand of bullying will always bring you into conflict with people like me.

As you wish. You've played your cards and I've played mine. I shall not waver from my own committment to what I perceive as the righting of a wrong.

The great puppet master is no doubt amused, as he well should be, for his work has been fine.

I think we've both made our decisions; there is no middle ground that can be found. However, I would suggest that we both, in the interests of not causing uproar on ehowton's journal, try to remain polite when we encounter each other on here. I will endeavour to refrain from snide remarks, and I hope you shall do the same.

I can hear the Galaxy Quest theme playing through my head!

"As long as there is injustice, whenever a Targathian baby cries out, wherever a distress signal sounds among the stars, we'll be there. This fine ship, this fine crew."

Please don't make it sound as if you're so easily manipulated.

People will think you weak.

You twisted my words, sir!

Now I am supposed to be many things which are not complimentary. I am supposed to be capricious. I have been called a playboy. I've even been called an eccentric, but I do not believe that i have the reputation of being a liar.

Now Mr. Howton, you can subpoena me, you can arrest me, you can even claim I've folded up and taken a run-out powder, but I've just about had enough of this nonsense.
