    Having read Mr. Tradewell`s placard with the assertion that general Read is both a coward and a scoundrel, I have come to the conclusion that Mr. Tradewell himself is a dickless wonder and so make a statement to that effect here on IAB this 23rd day of March 2010.

    But what if the original insult was well deserved? Should not this man then be considered the scoundrel? Just because you demand an apology doesn`t mean you deserve one.

    K3vin "should have challenged him to a duel"

    Apparently he did challenge him to a duel, and Read "refused to that satisfaction, which as an honorable man,...he was bound to give."

    In other words, he refused to duel OR apologize, hence he`s a Coward and a Scoundrel.
