    I only made it to page 8...then skipped ahead 10 pages, then read the last page. Funny thread though...what a 'tard. Judging by all the links those guys found, he seemed to be a scam artist all around the 'net. Someone needs to pay him a visit.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    I actually read this whole mess (insomnia). An interesting gang mentally phenomenon, but heavily seasoned with caution. The arrogance that comes with the false perception of security would appear a dangerous condition. One would hope that more individuals would start taking the "in real life" approach to relationships online.

    actually i think he is waiting for a western union check to clear... they were saying that it ould take up to a month for it to clear or something, per wu tos

    sad thing is, if it is a fraudulent check, that Mike guy has to pony up the expenses...
