Sometimes one gets stuck right in a middle of a chain of information which gets distorted as the manner the question are asked. Sometimes, one has "spokesman" of sorts which inadvertantly gets bystanders implicated and dragged into unneccesary conversation pieces that he/she tries best to avoid.
Perhaps, the only way is to destroy these chain of information or disinformation lest I get accused of being in cohort with all parties concern. I don't need anymore challenges to my credibility as it is. I would rather move on and cut out all these crap even if at the cost of loosing some friends. However, its a shame too loose friends over what may seem childish, trivial but potentially provocative action.
