Aren't you slightly hipocritical ?? (how ever you spell it)
For your information my "talk" has nothing to do with warez, and by no
means does it matter to you.. I have stated that i will not use my 
abbreviations for words incase people cannot read, but this i sgeting out

I asume you run a mud or are at least assocaied with a few so I ask you this
when you have 10 people asking you questions do you really spend the time
to use proper punctuation ? and insetad of saying anyone , isnt it easier 
and more conviniant to write ne1 ? come on ??

I get around 160+ messages in my mbox, and I try to at least read
the interesting ones and perhaps contribute my thoughts if i feel they
