Both Sam and I are grown-ups, and neither of us is afraid to argue or debate with each other or anyone else.

The problem, as I see it, is that not everyone in this situation is a grown-up. If I could dictate the outcome of this, I'd say, let it drop. Not to make me look good, or Sam look good. But, for the sake of the minor.

HOWEVER... please understand that each and every time I read something about myself or something I was involved in that I think is unfair or untrue, I will respond to it.

I don't believe I started any of these threads, I've only responded, and I certainly do not plan to initiate any new threads on this matter. The whole thing happened five months ago, we went that long without uttering a word on the matter. I'd be fine with it if it never came up again.

As far as my learning a lesson, I most certainly have. As a result, I have decided never to engage Sam in any sort of private communication again. If I have something to say to him, I'll do it on one of the boards.
