[German] Two phrases, one of them "ironic".

  I have a Russian friend I correspond with now and again.
  We discuss German some times (she went to high school
  in Germany).

  We talked about these two phrases today:

    Als guter Freund sollte ich keine schlechten Gewohnheiten unterstuetzen.
    Als guter Freund sollte ich deine schlechten Gewohnheiten nicht
unterstuetzen.

  The latter, I'm told, would be "ironic" in German. A direct
  translation in English would make it the more direct of the
  two. What do you all think?
