Well I don't know what all you said to her. I'm just teasing you about getting involved. Am I misunderstanding your debate? Did you truly feel threatened by her? I thought you laughed her off. I didn't think anyone was taking her seriously about what she said about you.
On another note...you do realize that I'm a female poster, don't you? Just in case me saying you are witty, sounded a little strange. ;)
I think you were given some good advise here to share with your friends. Hopefully digging through it all and presenting it will not cause you too much problem.
