Lately this forum reads like one of those Facebook posts with people trying to show their kids how far something can go on the internet...AKA Why you don't post personal stuff!!!!......!!

The OP here is in the same boat as this guy, and trust me. They're not catching any fish up $hit creek with no paddles.

I guess all the hints, rules, help provided, doesn't do any good! I think one would.skim the feedback forum, and rules, possibly learn a thing or two.

But...same story... good faith and desparation always leads to such a.scenario!!!

You can get a good look at a steak by sticking your head up a bull's ass. But wouldn't you rather take the butcher's word for it?

May not apply here, but awesome movie nonetheless.
