Your reading comprehension fails you again. And trying to turn the table is also failing. Good night and good luck.

No he's not. He's BHTV's trophy commenter. They'll protect him until he's the last one here. The forum we have today is the forum that Brenda and Aryeh have shaped through constant heavy-handed intervention. We should assume they've produced exactly the kind of forum they want.

Shhhh. Don't tell him that. He's not smart enough to have figured it out for himself. I'd hate for him to exhibit a cocksure attitude.

ROFL!

Don't worry, nothing can dent his wingnut victim mentality.

Oh, look, I just gave the BhTV admins a reason to intervene in the thread! I said something mean about Whatfur! There are some things that BhTV just will not stand for.
