You can't have been paying attention. I think Jayhawk would have surely called you an asshole by now.

But, if not, then here you go: you're an asshole.

I'm hopeful you've not been called worse by worse.

Why try to destroy slkworld? Maybe egos out of control from some people, maybe childish behavior sneaking behind the scenes starting BS rumors, maybe new members asking to be a moderator after a few days to try to steal member lists for a new site?

To fully disclose.....I am jfsully at slkworld, Benzworld and the AMG Private Lounge. As you can see I'm number6 (from the old brtish show) here. I am a moderator on the slkworld site and have no financial interest in any website. I also have no intent to start my own website.
You have a set of great big balls to post here, claiming that 'rumors' of slkworld's closing is bullshit. I have read BOTH threads started by BillT and another moderator, threatening to close the site if funds were not made available by it's members to keep it open. So, YOUR claims that these are 'bullshit rumors' is bullshit to the nth degree.
Now, was this used as a scare tactic to get members motivated to donate money to keep up the site. Definitely. But if you guys do not want people here, MBworld and P3 to think you may shut down, then quit posting threads threatening to. I think you guys have a great site but you need to cut the crap, on this one. You shouldn't be having problems keeping up the site if you have at least 500 regularly posting members that can contribute a few bucks apiece.

Why do I love this site? Because with all the "asshole" references some hapless dickfuck should have posted Leary's tired old "Asshole" song link but we're above that, aren't we?

"Where's the 'G-Spot' winkle eye pic when you need it?" snorts cmitch while he ruffles through the virtual files on his desktop.
