    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.

    I resent this suggestion which is obviously directed at me and my kind. Part of a guru's responsibility is to help people for a reasonable payment. It's a heavy burden but most of us take it on wholeheartedly. I even got someone to buy me premium membership in the vain hope that a pink title will showcase my good intentions.

    If you have not yet reached guruhood, then I suggest you try harder rather than attack those who have achieved your goal. As a wise guru said, the best revenge is to achieve massive financial success.

    Good day sir!

    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 I mean it's funny when you're 14, but it's really outdated.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.
