Using fingernails, teeth etc to scuff up one side - don't have a problem with it.
I've never understood why shining the ball is permitted in the rules as you're trying to maintain the original condition of the ball, yet raising the seam once it goes flat will see you hauled up on a charge of ball tampering.
Simple response to this issue (without trying to derail) - Although the fielding side gets to choose which ball they wish to bowl with, ultimately the ball belongs to both teams, and the batting team should have some benefit from seeing off a new ball (flattening the seam/taking the shine off), as much as the bowling side gains an advantage from shining one side.

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Why do they do that then? Is it because the batsmen have problems seeing the ball?
Afridi's past failings make his newly found strengths all the more remarkable. There's a tinge of redemption in how an apparently hare-brained player turns out to posses real leadership & wisdom.
And his previous escapades have been of the naive rather than the wicked kind, though shades of gray are hard to classify...
Xuhaib was having a laugh at your expense.
