[Haengemie] Shadowfire, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Shadowfire] Ladies and gentleman, I apologize for keeping you from your hunts.
[Shadowfire] Cat apparently is not aware of the term, "Freedom of speech"
[Shadowfire] If she had but asked me not to utilize profane language I would have refrained from using it.
[Shadowfire] Unfortunately, I had been curse bombed for no reason and was in a very bad mood when she cursed me. I apologized to her and that apology still stands.
[Shadowfire] I apologized to her and that apology still stands.
[Shadowfire] I feel that an exile's right to free speech should not be abridged by law, if you disagree feel free to vote guilty.
[Shadowfire] Thankyou, ladies and gentleman of the jury.
[Shadowfire] I ask you be lenient.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...

[Haengemie] Thank you, Shadowfire
[Haengemie] Cat, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Cat] I don't want much.. Just some gradification knowing that some one else cares about what people say In Puddleby
[Cat] the term freedom of speech is correct, but only to a certian level. When it becomes offensive, the 'freedom' is being misused
[Cat] Yelling noid in a crouwded Exile nursy would not be wrong?
[Cat] There needs to be limits

[Ptolemy] Hello, Jury and people of Puddleby
[Ptolemy] This is an appeal. WHY?!
[Ptolemy] Was the first jury not satisfactory?
[Ptolemy] Ptolemy shakes his head
[Ptolemy] This trial is unnecessary
[Ptolemy] Shadowfire was already found Innocent
[Ptolemy] But, for the sake of argument...
[Ptolemy] Shadowfire's FIRST use of profanelanguage was not geard toward Cat
[Ptolemy] Cat then, without warning, cursed the deranged elf.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
