Actually, I believe they are trying to get the attention of all of us
tempted by corruption. Fu Leng is insulting Hitomi, and it should make us

A valid point. <Wait for applause.> It had to happen sooner or later ; )

True. Liking was never required. Those of us with vision; however, do so.
Duty, loyalty, honor. BUSHIDO demands we respect Hitomi.

If you don't want to get jumped on, stop trying to persuade us to your point
with circular (non)logic posts. I already see enough black hats in the
story for my taste, thank you.

I'm tired of the whole hat thing. Being loyal to someone who kills and
corrupts everything? That's respect-worthy...NOT.
I'm tired now, and you're making my head hurt. Play corrupt if you want,
but stop promoting it as something that NEEDS to be done to further the
story. Personally, I think the whole, Phoenix/Lion/Dragon war was the
coolest part of the story. And nobody had to play corrupt to start that.
