I have to agree with you, I have never been so disgusted with this list as I
have today. If every person who posted in the past few days took the time to
post a deed or will or make some contribution to this list anytime in the last
six months it wouldn't be so bad.

I can understand not contributing to the list and being a lurker but to come
out so you can poke fun of people, call others wannabes and make fun of
someone's dialect is not my idea of a fun list. I see nothing funny in what has
been posted here.
