Wow! Defensive, much? I applaud your self control during this *one week*, but you're making like it is a long-term trend, which I definitely need to see to believe. I know you are feeling all satisfied, having blasted Share lately, and don't feel that roiling ball of anger within you, just now. But, given your inability to see your emotions until they explode, I guarantee it will happen again, just as it did with Curtis. You guys are two peas in a pod.
