    And always read the entire thread before posting, so you don't repeat something said just before you.

    If your posts are attacked by other people, this means your opponents are frightened. Frightened people attack their enemies, and try to discredit you so that no one else will see the truth in what you are saying.

    This is not true, don't listen to this guy, what he isn't telling you is that he is an Australien, you can't trust them their dna is from criminals and the constant exposure to the sun has been proven to destroy the nucleus accumbens , (the part of the brain that allows you to feel compashon) they are alll PSYCHOPATHS and CRIMINALS,because they have a geen pool from ALL CRIMINALS and the brain thing have NO MORALS and NO HUMAN COMPASHON of have you seen Neighbours ????? I also think he is an GOD denier

    Note to other posters - the larger your text, the more evident the truths in it become. :p
