POSTERS: If you want to look clever in a Forum, but don’t really have what it takes, simply copy and paste en masse from Viz’ Top Tips without accrediting the source, and pass it off as your own witty repartee. Sure to be a hit with the unread!!


Warning: I find most of my copy “online”. It is meant to pass on amusement, no more. I could respond to your personal attack, but I suspect that, as it appears to be based on personal issues, there would be little point. You always have the choice to be part of the “Unread”,I enjoy mirth over vitriol .

  1. You may want to read up on the whole “personal attack” deal.
  2. Copyright practice doesn’t concern itself overly with what you do or don’t enjoy
  3. Nice unattributed quote in the imported graphic. That’s probably why it’s been @maoman’s signature for several years now

Just saying. :wink:


Do raccoons like wrestling? :thinking:
