      Maybe this is a topic that should end before it winds up starting

      fights on the boards. I have replies to a lot of what is said, but

      in the interest of keeping the board nice to visit, I’ll keep them

      to myself.

      Just keep this in mind- it takes a PERSON, not a BUSINESS, to do

      those things.
