"You pull a knife, I bring a gun. It's the Pando way."

It started when PandoDaily founder Sarah Lacy interviewed SpaceX/PayPal/Tesla founder Elon Musk at a facility called CrossCampus. She wasn't happy that CrossCampus put a banner over their stage, so she wrote them an angry email that seemed an awful lot like an attempt at extortion. So they responded saying as much. Which so infuriated PandoDaily columnist Paul Carr that he responded with a rant that has already become Internet-famous:
Fuck you Ronen, you condescending sack of shit. [...] Google me. Read a few of my columns in the Guardian, the Times, the Wall Street Journal or on blogs like TechCrunch and — of course — PandoDaily. Or pick up one of my books. Read what *always* happens when someone starts a public fight with me, or attempts to shake down one of my friends. [...] I suggest — and it's not really a suggestion — you fuck off and stop trying to play with the big leagues. You're barely ready for pre-school, let alone a pathetic "our lawyers are bigger than your lawyers" dance. [...] Batter up.Salon responds. Sarah Lacy wants Valleywag, which leaked the emails, to pay her $100,000 in damages. Paul Carr responds on his own site, and clearly regrets nothing.
