    Self promoting what? Man chill out it is a article, there is noting being promoted here.
    This is why people are starting to steer clear of these forums Because of Idiots on silly witchhunts to try and condemn somebody whether justifiably or not.
    There are Lives floating around out there...GRAB ONE!

    Hey I really appreciate it Man, I apologize as well for being a bit Nippy but It's just happening so often on these forums now. Seems the communities are so hell bent on catching a predator that we're loosing site of the original INTENT of these types of Forums. Now don't get me wrong I know we have to help moderate and keep these communities free of the riff-raff but not so much so that it becomes an unbearable novelty site that, instead of sharing and helping one another along, becomes overtaken by Keyboard Vigilantes looking for the next target to wander across their cross-hairs to be demeaned and dismantled. Off course I am being a bit dramatic as usual but I think my point is made. Again thanks for being courteous enough to take the time out to apologize.:eek: MANY wouldn't have!

    Yup must be because I was looking at my Ex's page(sad I know) and she poked me as I was looking at it and asked what I was doing there which made me start the search for such an app which lead to that article -lol
