Wanting to use Acton Lord and reserving Acton Lord are two different things.

Wanting to use expresses a desire.  The other expresses that only you 
can write Acton Lord and that you have total control over him.

One pisses Dave off.  The other doesn't.  I e-mailed Dave and he 
understands the difference.

And I believe you understand the difference too.  You posted this to 
start a flame way and to piss people off.

Well, Dave had just joined up with the group so I assumed he might be 
reading it.  I mean if he hadn't I would have probably e-mailed him 
first.  I might have e-mailed him this weekend, but I was already 
thinking of quitting this because of your behavior.

Maybe you should have asked me about whether I had gotten Dave's 
permission before you posted this.

No, I think not wanting to work with assholes makes a lot of sense.  And 
this post of yours was probably the straw that broke my back.  You've 
been acting like an asshole all weekend.. pushing my buttons and pushing 
my buttons.

I know that's what you like to do.

You've done it to Mike Escutia, Matt Rossi, Peter Milan, Jesse Willey, 
and Tom Russell.  It's a pattern with you.  And you keep doing.

You push these peoples buttons over and over again.  And then you act 
surprised when they bite your head off.  And you've been doing it to me. 
  I guess it's what you're good at.

There's a reason why a lot of people on this group don't like you.  And 
this post of yours is a good example why.

I thought maybe for awhile you were being less of an asshole.  I could 
probably work with the Martin who helped write ILC.  But I can't work 
with you.

And part of the reason why I'm quitting is focus more time on Beige 

But if you weren't acting like such as asshole, I'd probably be willing 
to do one or two issues of this with you.

I really think you could use some therapy or something like that.

There's something very wrong with you Martin.  And I suppose one of 
those things is you don't seem to be aware that something is wrong with you.
