You should know, the usual sh*t stirrers on here HATE the truth because it gets in the way of the fictitious crap they regularly spout about myself and others, using total rubbish they dredge up off the internet to back up their claims.

Which is why I rarely revisit a post after commenting. It gets so tiresome hearing the same drivel regurgitated from people who have never even met me and wouldn't know me if they fell over me.

But it's always useful when dealing with them officially I find, so let them keep on... it's all grist to the mill!
