There was no reason to be protective, so no.
The situation was equivalent to a girl walking into a pub, on its most popular day ever, demanding no one talk about Big Brother because she hadn't seen who got knocked out. And then as people continued to talk about it the boyfriend decided to rip the place up in anger at the lack of cooperation, forcing everyone to leave. When asked about his actions, the boyfriend blamed the owner for not gagging all the customers for his girlfriend's benefit.
There's a reason why we have a separate thread for the other matches.
Besides, that wasn't what pissed me off. When someone asks you not to do something, you will either comply or you won't. A simple response is sufficient.
What I didn't like was someone quoting her request and posting the score underneath. That was designed to wind her up, which pissed me off.
So don't misrepresent what happened, Mark.
