  • If you are a spineless dweeb that thinks that our style is crass and unfair, or that we are a bunch of insensitive, insulting, cheap bastards that would laugh our asses off at your misfortunes as you went through the box on the 'con.

  • If you weren't here before the Feb. 2k crash, you can still be cool yet some will still think you are a newbie!
