I don't want to get into a battle of wits here. I refuse to fight and unarmed person.
I'm pretty sure that 'personal messages' rule is intented for post such as "Hey Berry meet me at McDonald's in an hour." Not general post in which another memember wonders aloud why some 12 year old AOLer who just found another cool message board spams it with usless dribble... about 'Rumors' that are only rumors in his or her own world.
Earl answers questions on this board out of the kindness of his heart not becuase he has a duty to. As soon as someone starts to abuse the kindness then he will be less likley to post. So I'm sure if you have some real question or you really have something important to contribute then go right ahead else please stop your only pushing the real questons and comments off the main page.
