"I agree with what Shane, Andrew, and others have said in this thread.

"Don't flatter yourself, Johnny boy. The only people you can corner are the teenagers on the forum. You have proven to be nothing but a stalking parasite and heckler, just as Will once described, although I certainly will respect his…"
