It found ME!
Back in oh-so-many-years-ago, back in the "strong, stronger,
strongest" days, on the fudge list, I saw Fred talking about it and
had a long discussion with him about it.
tried it with my players, it bombed, and I haven't talked to Fred

This is pretty close to how he handles fallout from conflicts. (Well,
one of the ways; there's a list you can choose from, but everything is
mostly along these lines).
If you haven't read _DitV_, I recommend it highly!
