However that's no reason for charachter assasination by you, me or anyone else for that matter if you want to talk about integrity and honour for doing so means to me you or whoever has been led into saying such.
Graham, I have to say, whenever I read a sentence like the one above, my eyes start to cross. For the life of me, I can't figure out what you are trying to say. Can you please try to break it down into two or three simpler sentences, with one subject and one predicate each, and further explain what you mean by "character assassination"? It would also be helpful if you could provide an example of this alleged "character assassination". If I say that John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln, that's not character assassination, that's just the facts.
