"not the most excellent" implies that it's somewhat excellent, but not 
the "most" excellent. False, her words were the opposite of excellent, 
and I'm finished being on the defensive about this. No one has taken 
Rachel to task about her words (except Al).

>I personally try to refrain from judging people's choice of socializing

Rachel was not "socializing", she was "abusing". I can take affectionate 
ribbing from a friend. This does not qualify.

It's pretty amazing, and unacceptible, to me that being an apologist for 
someone's blatant abusiveness, and criticizing the target of the abuse.
