      Please supply us every post you generated since that incident happened. If it’s more than 20 over the last 16 years, and some coming within the last year or so, than I will make sure that I agree to meet you wherever and shake your hand. If you haven’t had that same energy for 16 years, kill the noise you are spewing.
