    I know that there are several words on this site that when typed show up as asterisks. 'Guru' should be one of them. Nobody likes it, it brings about negative connotations for a lot of people here, and most people who refer to themselves as such are either scamming or too full of themselves to contribute anything to the board without looking for praise, email subscribers, or referrals in return.

    Damn, that would be a shame. I know you've been putting in a lot of work on this project too.

    Guru: An influential teacher or popular expert.

    Expert: A drip under pressure. << it's all in the pronunciation.

    You seem to suffer from a mild case of aguruphobia. Quicky apply 10 e-books for rapid healing.

    I'm surprised nobody called me a dick for stirring the pot by tagging those guru members here.

    Though who knows if any of them will bother posting in this thread.

    Hey, it's their own fault for putting guru in their usernames. I mean it's funny when you're 14, but it's really outdated.

    I hope they do. With them being Guru's and everything then I am sure we'll all learn something from what they post.

    Yup, and the fact that they're gurus, they can probably just go buy a couple Ferraris and race them around to ease their pain. ;)

    Yes, we can all learn something from them.

    Praise be in their name.
