Odd Situation Advice?

I'd like some advice... End of November I ordered a commission with a due date of Xmas (last year), it was never completed, and multiple dates were set. I asked the artist for an update in June, and to provide a wip or a refund, they refused both and rushed my commission, admitting to doing so as well. They refused to do all the fixes, and eventually got a mutual friend involved who gave them money to give me a refund, which was confusing and not OK with me at all. (The mutual tried to refund me directly themselves and I said no)
But I got a partial and the rushed 'wip' theyre now saying it is. (saying the image was never completed and thats why it was 'rushed' when they told me it was finished and they rushed it on purpose)

I was going to post them to AB, but I got the image and the partial so I agreed not to. But they insisted I unfollow their twitter accounts, which I was going to do, but they keep venting and ranting about me there, and I capped stuff for an AB post on their attitude alone. They mention me by name on Twitter, and I got some caps of the callouts before I was blocked.

They are now doing it on FA, for the sole purpose that I can see it. And getting the mutual friend involved, to message me on their behalf.

I like their art, and even though their attitude and actions are something lacking, I still wish to see the art, and screencap the posts theyre making for proof for an AB post.

The journals Im screencapping are not callouts with my name directly, but worded to me, and dragging me through the dirt, so to speak. Theyve called me out by name on Twitter, and I know they are calling me out via IM/notes as people have come to me about the situation.

Should I continue to watch their FA and compile evidence? (Is there a point to this as I got a partial refund, but their attitude was atrocious) or should I unwatch and let them fizzle out on the callout posting?

EDIT I seem to have misworded. They do not want me watching their FA and thats what the journals are about. I like their art and wanted to continue to view it (I havent faved or commented on anything), and continue to cap the journals about me for evidence.

Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

Once the artist and friend decided to NOT let it go after both parties agreed to drop it and end things, then you have no obligation to uphold the agreement. You're the only one doing so, after all.

Post a beware, especially include the call out of you. Keep gathering evidence, because if they continue to act this way toward you, it's more proof we should be avoiding them both. I certainly don't want to get tangled up with this artist or their friends/fans.

The mutual friend did nothing wrong, and just wanted to help, in my opinion. I was ONLY uncomfortable with them paying a refund that wasnt theirs.

Whoops. I seemed to think some of the "they"s referred to the artist AND mutual friend. As well as this:

They are now doing it on FA, for the sole purpose that I can see it. And getting the mutual friend involved, to message me on their behalf.

My bad.

Sorry! Im not too good with words. Ive been using they, as it's kind of standard for me.

The artist had the mutual friend contact me to get my paypal info for the refund (even tho they had me on discord) and to get me to unwatch the artist.

It's all good now. Just maybe use "the artist" instead of "they" if more than one person is in the main story?

I don't see why they have such an issue with you remaining a watcher. I'd assume they have you blocked so you can't "cause problems" so letting you keep viewing their art shouldn't be a problem. Unless, of course, they want to keep spreading the negativity about you without getting caught red handed.
