Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Is SAL really that bad? Maybe he overstepped in asking you to prove your relationship with Bounty's captain, but he has some good ideas/opinions too. And if he overstepped a bit, is it right to trash him? It seems to me that there were some really mean statements made against him.....and not justified in my book.
You are a defender of captain based on your take of the available information and some personal knowledge of the man. That is your position.
Others look at the available information and draw different conclusions. They are unlikely to convince you of their position, nor will you convince them to change their position.
