Need help finding poignant AskMe answer regarding the road to lawyerdom

Trying to find what I think was an AskMe (or possibly MeFi) comment from a while back, wherein the commenter outlines the fictional life story of someone whose aim is to make a lot of money so they can be happy, but ends up missing the mark along the way and turns into someone rather unhappy (but with the money).

You sir, are a jerk.

Looking for a quote from Metafilter comments from less than a month ago. About calling a lawyer a jerk. I paraphrase badly: "If you think the defense is wrong then attack the defense. If you think the facts are wrong then argue the facts. If you've got nothing then call the other lawyer a jerk."

people outside this board can and will read whatever you post

Today I get interviewed by a lawyer about this post. Not specifically about that incident, but as supporting evidence to try and get the store in question to settle a different court case. The lawyer has told me that the security department has already admitted to criminal behaviour. Considering that this event occured at least 5 years before I made that post, I've already expressed how little I remember. I expect to say "I don't remember" a lot. I just bring this up as a reminder that people outside this board can and will read whatever you post (remember our own shoplifting community?).

LokiTorrent: should I worry?

Should I worry or not?

Given the large response to the thread about the closure of LokiTorrent and an anonymous comment in AskMeFi on the 11th I thought I'd let the good users of MeFi know about this. It came from my ISP today. I'm in London England for reference purposes. I've also removed sensitive bits. The file (movie) in question was however a 'Hollywood Blockbuster'. I got 15 mins through it and ditched it it really was S**t.
Just to let you know I have only downloaded 2 movies in 3 years, this one I consigned to the recycle bin the other I bought on DVD as it had some merit! [full email]
