Exo, buddy, that's exactly why we like you.
to all: it's probably Sal's story to tell and i'm fuzzy on some of the details, but since i already opened the can (worms, not whoop-ass)... essentially, Link talked crap about Sal. specifically, Sal's tank-driving skills. now, class, we all know that Sal's a perfectly-fine tank pilot, just as we all know that Link essentially considers bitching to be good fun.
i think someone reminded Link that Sal could of course hear him. Link asked, 'Sal, are you in here?'
Sal, being a sly dog, didn't say anything (or said 'no, he's not here!')... and Link, being a bit of a jerk, started talking about Sal even further.
so, that is why i say it's one thing to try and offer constructive criticism, or even good-naturedly give your buddy trouble about getting a tank blown up... but what Link did seemed underhanded, and malicious.
forget the fact that IT'S JUST A GAME, but if you dislike something i''m doing, man the eff up and tell me to my face, please!
