Yikes. I always thought me and him were quite similar, so much so I'd almost fair for my own safety on this forum.
I'd like to think he holds true to similar ethics as I do, as to not cross lines too far and doing your best to subjectively adjust said lines respectively in contrast to those you deal with.
It does make me curious as to what line he crossed. Although I'm pretty certain it's not a line I'd cross regardless of knowing what that is, since I don't take crossing lines lightly.
