GKP, you're right in that we all deal with different friends in different ways. But I still agree with eohall on the premise that a "real" friend wouldn't put other friends in an untenable situation like that; if he was a good friend, he wouldn't need to be asked to tone it down if it was causing trouble for others.
If this was an expansion like FullDE suggests, then it'd be a non-issue.
I dedicate these deaths to Odin Allfather, Spearshaker, One Eye.
