It's worth pointing out that this point is not made in any political context, but in a personal one. Unless greatly pressed, I shall offer no further details, as the circumstances involved would make me look very bad indeed.

I press you greatly. But you can send me an email if you don't want to go into it here.

Not even a hypothetical? Or a hint? What's going on, my friend?

I've already pressed, to no avail. What's the deal?

Fascinating definition. Never thought of mercy as "a weakness of character" before. Hmm.

I used intentionally provocative language because...well, because I was pissed off. Somewhat at someone else, but mostly at me. I did something that most would view as an act of mercy but I viewed as, well, a weakness of my character. Boring specifics available on the Director's Cut DVD of this post.

Ah. I suspect I get the general idea, even without the specifics.

I hate moments like that-- I always end up feeling like a doormat.
