What a hyppocrit!!

Not hesistating to tell people they are wrong brings more drawbacks than satisfaction.

OTOH, sticking tags on people's forehead is easy and practical to disqualify their opinions. It also brings satisfaction of belonging to a group of idiots which actions I am trying to expose. By your actions, you just have proven to be one of them...even though we had a nice exchange... just B4...
