Yes, i am confirming what you said - after all i did read the whole thing but i am on the ipod so i could not be arsed to quote things - but with the caveat that "unless he has something awesome that is about to expire".
And as far as "drama" goes, i am using the term in a far less circumscribed and judgmental way than you would. I believe that anyone can "have drama", even if they are not the originator of it, and why would someone knowingly take that on unless they were getting something out of it that made it worthwhile.
So, go for it, if that be the case. I am not trying to tell you what to do.
