Not sure if the thinking is that because Azer didn’t engage in psuedo friendly arguments with you that, that Azer is meant to be considered the bad guy.
Azer clarly, (at least to me) is in the right. He is being threatened in the way that lawyers do it all over the world. The premise behind your “need” to clarify hypothetical confusion doesn’t hold water in my mind when considering the situation.
Anyways, you got what you wanted. Good for you.
