I'm offline for a few days and they change the whole site? It appears to be mostly cosmetic this time and I like it, it looks more professional.

What are you talking about? It's been this way for months. How long were you in that coma?

Man, What the hell did you people do to this site!! What's with the endless delays with each mouse click. And the never ending message "long running script"

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
