And who cares if there's a lot of traffic? Quality trumps quantity, at least when the quantity has so little quality. Er...if that mess of a sentence makes sense. Higher traffic boards can be a lot of fun, but they inevitably have to fight to avoid being taken over by trolls and goons.

          They might know... A little trick to get rid of anything that smells offensive... WHITE VINEGAR in an open bowl set in the room will grab the odors so that you can't smell it...

        We had a lot of trolls and goons back on MSNBC's R&E, as I recall.

            Especially about fank and Bauer. As for the involvement thingy, well, I've been with my partner for 19 years. So I guess I'm kind of committed -- to him, that is. :)
