I'm sick and tired of filtering through the crap posted by so called members who have figured out how to post garbage on the main feed of this website.  As a longtime user of the website trying to help counter the corporate-psychopath propaganda I really just can't stand the useless posts by those members who DO NOT respect that this website belongs to Mike and Claire.  I hate every one of you and if we ever meet in person I will firmly express myself by placing my boot as far up your ass as possible to let you know how unwelcome your contributions have been!
