    She thinks I did. Apparantly I'm a 'pro lasik weasel' now.

  11. Having had a poor Lasik outcome does not justify or excuse lies,
    misinformation, defamation, threats of violence, or fraud. Responding
    defensively to lies, misinformation, defamation, threats of violence,
    or fraud is not "making fun of injured people" just because the
    perpetrator had a poor Lasik outcome.

    I represent the "weasel defense fund" and demand that you retract this
    semi-libelous statement or we'll have every rodent in the hood picket
    and poop all over your house.

    I am not a rodent.
