While I really do sympathize with the fact that you got bent, I'd be curious to hear more details about the cirumstances of the incident and why you feel this was totally the DM's fault.

I not trying to set you up here, but as an instructor (and someone who feels certifified divers too often don't take responsibility for their own actions, even when on a "guided" dive), I'd also be curious to know if it was impossible for you to unilaterally abort the dive &/or if the DM forced you to continue to dive against your will and good judgement.
