"The only poster here that brings anything of value to this board is Hotpanera."
So you finally admit that your butt buddy Alan contributes nothing?
If you admire Hotpanera, Ruffnuts, as you obviously falsely claim, then why do you rate each of his messages one star over & over, same as Pebbles', Harold's, Detractor's & all the other humans', but Alan's five stars repeatedly?
You appear to be hung up or paranoid about ratings.
Most here know except you that the rating of posts has long lost its meaning and luster ever since you created your hundreds of aliases in order to upgrade your messages. It's sad that readers have left in droves to find decency somewhere else. You come through as being too dense between the ears to realize what you have done and couldn't care one iota so long as stars are affixed to your stoopid nametags. Your intent has always been to exhibit superiority and you surprise no one with your round the clock childish behavior.
You wouldn't see classy folks like Hotpanera or even Eureka stoop to such lows in order to allay the impression that they're VIPs of this board because they already are.
Hence, the very reason I've been telling you time and time again to grow up. But then again, what's the point of talking to a knucklehead?
