Member fishervwb's entire post history is nothing more than posting a link, and copying a part of it. He even earned 29 Merit point for this.

Example:

We’re about to revolutionize insurance! Want to get involved? Learn more about the VRN token and what’s possible.

Vernam, a hot new ICO, is about to revolutionize the insurance industry in a way no one can ignore. By leveraging blockchain technology, this InsurTech will make insurance more transparent, efficient, and convenient for everyone involved — from big insurance companies to the end-client.

People seeking insurance will also benefit from much lower costs. Vernam will connect insurers and end-clients in a digital marketplace, thus effectively cutting out middlemen (read — brokers and agents) and their commissions.

The result? Better, faster, more convenient insurance. If that doesn’t whet your appetite, we don’t know what will!

Continue reading to find out what makes Vernam’s business model special, and how the token allocation will work.

Since this doesn't add anything to the forum, please consider revoking his posting rights.

The sheer number of threads here of people not understanding why it is costing them 50% of their total balance to send their coins and then posting TXIDs that have 15-20 inputs and a transaction size best measured in kilobytes for a total of 0.005 BTC sent indicates that a lot of users simply don't understand bitcoin fundamentals.

Proof of work is a protocol that has the main goal of deterring cyber-attacks such as a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS) which has the purpose of exhausting the resources of a computer system by sending multiple fake requests.

Copy/pasted from here:
https://blog.monetha.io/proof-work-vs-proof-stake-explained/

Same post:

The Proof of work concept existed even before bitcoin, but Satoshi Nakamoto applied this technique to his digital currency revolutionizing the way traditional transactions are set.

In fact, PoW idea was originally published by Cynthia Dwork and Moni Naor back in 1993, but the term “proof of work” was coined by Markus Jakobsson and Ari Juels in a document published in 1999.

Paraphrased from here:
https://captainaltcoin.com/proof-work-vs-proof-stake/


Coincheck, the Japanese exchange that lost ~$550 million worth of NEM to hackers, will stop dealing with Monero, Dash and Zcash. The trading platform has recognized the risk posed by these cryptocurrencies which provide high levels of anonymity. Half of the NEM coins stolen in the hack may have been converted already on the darknet, a cybersecurity expert claims.

Copy / pasted from here:
https://news.bitcoin.com/coincheck-drops-anonymous-monero-dash-zcash/


The G20’s announcement that it will pivot away from creating new regulations in favor of examining existing rules gave the cryptocurrency market a much needed seeing Bitcoin surge by $1000.

 Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank Of England and outspoken critic of Bitcoin heads the Financial Stability Board which coordinates financial regulation for the Group of 20 economies.

Carney has been very vocal about his doubts concerning the credibility of cryptocurrency in the past speaking as the head of the Bank of England.

Deciding that there was not enough of a consensus to create radical new regulation among the 20 countries that make up the G20 the FSB issued a letter to the central bankers and finance ministers who will convene in Buenos Aries on the 19 and 20 saying

I just want to give you some information, to take care about Wink

There is a common misconception, that Blockchain technology automatically guarantees high security because of its cryptography and inalterability. Despite these definite strengths of the technology, the Blockchain ecosystem is not necessarily a safe haven. Even small security gaps can have a big influence.

What gaps or risks could apply, can be showcased by two fatal incidents, where hackers exploited weaknesses in the code of the particular organizations with the help of the underlying Blockchain Smart Contract technology.

In june 2016 the venture capital fund organization “Decentralized Autonomous Organisation (short “DAO”) has been deprived of approximately $ 50 Mio. in form of Ether during a business operation. DAO is a decentralized virtual organization, where members decide via votes, which company receives suitable risk capital - represented by a Smart Contract based on the Ethereum Blockchain. At the end of the voting the gathered Ether will be transferred to the elected wallet. An additional feature, the “split DAO” function, was the downfall of the organization. This function allowed to split the transfer of Ether onto multiple wallets, so called “child DAO”. It was possible via a Smart Contract, which worked technically flawless, but enabled participants to request multiple splits simultaneously, despite not yet balanced ledgers. The attackers were able to request a split up to 200 times and almost completely empty the DAO wallet. The weakness was in the DAO Smart Contract, the Ethereum Blockchain worked faultless and even to the attackers advantage.

To prevent this hack a simple review and testing before publishing the Smart Contract would most likely have been sufficient.

In August 2016 the cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex in Hong-Kong has been compromised. 120,000 Bitcoins have been stolen from user wallets. To increase security, Bitfinex introduced a so called “Multi-Signature Key Management System”, where private keys of users were stored by Bitfinex itself and third party provider BitGo. The exact cause of the attack has never been confirmed, but the hackers were able to access all three necessary keys to perform a transaction on the accounts. Again the security gap was in the organizations concept and not the Blockchain technology itself.

Both examples show that the underlying Blockchain technology worked reliably and safe, but the applications built upon showed a lack of security and missing risk assessment, which enabled the hacks.

Jr. Member yaya91 is another one who's entire posting history is just copying the first two lines of a news report and giving the link without adding anything to it.

The major cryptocurrencies are consolidating as prices attempt to form a bottom.  Momentum appears to be turning upward, but don’t be surprised of prices take another shot at the downside before making a move higher.

I'd give this guy the benefit of a doubt because he seems to be advertising this site (blockpit.io).
If you look at his previous posts he's quoted them multiple times and placed a link to their site below the posts.

A good website with nice articles to topics like this, you can find on www.blockpit.io
Maybe he simply forgot it this time.

Also, it looks like he's posting a lot in German and blockpit is a German news site, so he could technically be working for them.

User: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1603002.

is bitcoin helpful to the economy? for me Over the past few years, Bitcoins have been gaining significant importance around the world. Indeed, it is the world’s leading crypto-currency and the year’s best-performing currency. It has gained a staggering 35 percent across last year. Achieving this recognition has not been easy. Its association with crime, that is, the money laundering and narcotics through the infamous online black markets like Silk Road & Alphabay, and the alarming amount of price volatility left regular financial-market participants wary due to its potential risks. as i have read in some articles As of now, many central banks are closely observing developments in the growth of bitcoin. Many others, however, have already responded by sending out proposals for the issuance of a digital version of their fiat currencies. The central banks of Canada and Ecuador are a few among the first to explore such opportunities.

Please nuke the following accounts from orbit.  Since they all seem to represent some of the tottering first steps of an aspiring account farmer, I recommend that Administrators check IP evidence for any linkage to other accounts.  If such a thing were practicable, the individual who did this should be altogether deprived of Internet access, an also of oxygen.


Eight out of nine posts by “salsa” are plagiarism.  (The ninth is a one-line shitpost praising an allegedly free “transaction accelerator”.)  The other two above-listed accounts are almost certainly sockpuppets of the same individual.

I shall now proceed to quote each and every post by all three of these accounts.  Yes, it’s that bad.

Table of Contents






For its first post, “salsa” chose a modus operandi of copypasting the OP of the thread, in the same thread.  More of this is seen below.

Original, topic OP:

https://web.archive.org/web/20180322011643/https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2353448.msg23988064#msg23988064
I see a lot of people pushing for companies like Amazon to accept Bitcoin as a payment option. Have we considered the

implications of these decisions? Let's say we cannot scale to "service" the need for millions of new people who would use

this technology for the first time. What a big embarrassment would it be, if people waited 13 hours for their transactions to

be confirmed. Doing this now will hurt Bitcoin more than any other "bad" thing that has happened to it before.

We need to wait for the perfect scaling solution to address this problem, before Amazon or any other big retailer starts to

accept Bitcoin as a payment option. The Lightning Network might get us close, but it is not a proven technology yet.

Let's hear your thoughts on this?  Huh Huh

Plagiarized on page 7 of the same thread as the first-ever post by the “salsa” account:

https://web.archive.org/web/20180322011526/https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2353448.msg27747879#msg27747879

In these times of Mass scammers out there, I urge people to use an escrow. There are many good members out there willing to help to secure the bitcoin community, There are also more people willing to do anything to scam you out of your coins, Please just do your research on someone before you part with your hard earned coins.

An escrow list - updated 11/17

Note to mod, I know this is in the wrong section as I am not selling anything, I feel we all need to be wiser, People in the selling forums are less likely to look elsewhere for information on what this is and how it is acheved,
Even if a few people read this and use escrow, Or a few scammers don't get their coins, I will consider this a good job.
Please consider not moveing out the way, This needs to be addressed.

** jan 16

There is a new wave of possible scammers, People who buy up legendary accounts and trade untill they have large sum of money then run, This has been done with a very trusted account recently.

Please be cautious, I am trying to set up a 3 way secure key escrow for my personal escrows to add peace of mind.

I would like to point out, that I do not partake in escrowing forum accounts, I never have and never will, in fact its against the rules on my forum, This is a trust based commodity as it stands, if we keep moving the goal posts as well as the stadium, no one can be accountable for theft!

Keep safe people, dont give up, trust in BTC, suspect people :-)

** April 17

please watch out for fake accounts made to look like hero/legendary escrow accounts, check the join date and the letters of the name exatly! some use numerical 0 instead of alphabetical O, and please watch out for sold accounts! this forum allows selling of any account, so make it difficult to know who's still real, I do not allow selling of accounts on my forum  Roll Eyes

I can’t find the source for the third post by the “salsa” account; but it is obviously plagiarized, too.  It even references a “table below” which does not exist in the post.  It appears to be copied from marketing materials for Monex Investindo Futures (MIFX), an Indonesian forex broker.  Incidentally, the material is off-topic in the thread.

https://web.archive.org/web/20180322013759/https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2711756.msg27751213#msg27751213
What is the effect of spread on profit opportunities?
Often traders only consider commissions trading. In reality, trading profits depend on commissions and spreads. Monex comes with the lowest commission and spread combinations with no hidden costs that give you a lower break-even point and a 40% higher profit chance *.
* You can see illustrations of the effect of spreads and commissions in the table below

Why deal with market execution?
Market execution is an order to buy or sell at the best available price when the broker receives the request. The order will be immediately done without "requote" or rejection at the best market price so as to guarantee the speed of your transaction.

Why choose an official licensed legal broker?
As a legal broker under the supervision of BAPPEBTI, Monex has operational standards in line with applicable regulations, including a separate account system applied to all customer funds. This ensures the security of your funds is assured during trading. You can also enjoy the ease of withdrawing funds on the same day as all client funds are kept in account in Indonesia.





Similar as with the account’s third post, its fourth post is self-evident copypaste plagiarism related to an Indonesian service, stuck in a thread where it is off-topic (here deep on page 5).  This one appears to have potentially been run through a machine translation, and self-references “the authors” (plural).

https://web.archive.org/web/20180322014357/https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2694817.msg27751818#msg27751818
The rapid development of the business world in line with technological developments has had a major impact on the economic development of Indonesia. This is seen by the tight competition in the business world both trade and industry products and services and the increasing demands of consumers not only limited products or goods consumed but also improved quality of service / service for the product.
This increasingly fierce competition requires companies to manage all existing resources optimally in order to survive in the business world tends to change rapidly. Inventory of goods is one important resource for the survival of a company.
Hospital is one form of business services that provide health services in fulfilling the life of the community, where hospitals in this day and age again only how a person was quickly healed. A very significant development of the proliferation of clinics and hospitals, so the management must strive to provide the best service to paasien not only how to cure it but also apply how to provide support facilities to patients.
Therefore, the authors are interested to discuss the problem Supporting Facilities (Facilities Support) at the Hospital with the aim of improving service to consumers in this case the patient.





For its fifth post, “salsa” copypaste from an article about the outsourcing of graphic design.  But here, “salsa” added its own creative touch:  Two emoticons appended to the bottom of the copypaste!

Note:  The sentence, “Graphic design is one of those things where people like different things but dislike the same ones” is a witty quip which appears to have been plagiarized by other sites (e.g.).

Putative original—link and boldface here presented as in the original:

Quote from: ICT Burgas
Graphic design is one of those things where people like different things but dislike the same ones. In a way, when a bad design appears in the world, anyone can tell it’s bad. That’s why you need to be extra cautious when delegating your graphic design tasks to someone else.

                 

Once familiar with the risks, taking the decision of choosing the right outsourcing company will turn into a child’s play. Or at least your choice spectrum will be significantly narrowed down.

If you’re looking for a partner, we - from ICT Burgas, can connect any business looking for outsourcing opportunities with the appropriate local company and guarantee its efficiency and premium quality.

We’ve always preferred bad news served first so let’s try something unconventional and start with the cons of outsourcing your graphic design tasks.

For its sixth post, the “salsa” account plagiarized an old version of Wikipedia’ Bitcoin article.  This text has been plagiarized (without attribution) on multiple other websites, and was likely copied from one of those.

Wikipedia’s edit history has many variations of the wording within this passage; there is probably one which is an exact match, which I simply didn’t find in the page’s voluminous edit history.

(Aside:  1rYK1YzEGa59pI314159KUF2Za4jAYYTd also shows up as an example address in https://casascius.com/AgreementToDeliverBitcoins.pdf, which is still served up with a last-modified date of 2011-02-04 17:39:13 (UTC).  Does anybody know what that address is, or where it originated?)

2011 vintage Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bitcoin&oldid=416583341

Quote from: Wikipedia
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer implementation of Wei Dai's b-money proposal and Nick Szabo's Bitgold proposal. The principles of the system are described in Satoshi Nakamoto's 2008 Bitcoin whitepaper.[1]
Addresses

Any person participating in the bitcoin network has a wallet containing an arbitrary number of cryptographic keypairs. The public keys, or bitcoin addresses, act as the sending or receiving endpoints for all payments. Their corresponding private keys authorize payments from that user only. Addresses contain no information about their owner and are generally anonymous.[2] Addresses in human-readable form are strings of random numbers and letters around 33 characters in length, of the form 1rYK1YzEGa59pI314159KUF2Za4jAYYTd. Bitcoin users can own multiple addresses, and in fact can generate new ones without any limit, as generating a new address is relatively instantaneous, simply equivalent to generating a public/private key pair, and requires no contact with any nodes of the network. Creating single-purpose/single-use addresses can help preserve a user's anonymity.

The “salsa” account’s seventh post is self-evident plagiarism from a source I cannot immediately locate.  It appears to be from marketing materials for “Journals, cloud-based online accounting software”.

https://web.archive.org/web/20180322031043/https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1635900.msg27824788#msg27824788
Accounting according to the American Accounting Association is a process of identifying, measuring, and communicating economic information to get the right decision from users of corporate information. However, in the process many companies experience mistakes in the accounting process that can cause losses to the loss of trust from others. Here are some mistakes in accounting processes that are often found in companies.

 

Recording & Reconciliation Errors

As businesses begin to run smoothly, many entrepreneurs ignore the financial statements simply by reason of not having much time. By not logging business transactions, financial statements will be inconsistent with actual company conditions. Inappropriate and inappropriate financial statements can have a negative effect on the company such as credit rating to be bad or delivery of goods from suppliers to be not smooth.

 

Only Make Reports as Records

Many entrepreneurs see accounting only as a process of recording corporate financial data that serves only to calculate the balance of the company or the interests of taxation. But in reality, financial statements can provide information as a consideration chart to determine decisions or create strategies for developing a company's business.

 

Forgot Saving Transaction Proof

Often forget to keep a proof of a transaction like a receipt or note often happens to everyone, especially when attention and thoughts are focused on things. While receipts and notes can be a valid evidence when there is a difference in the number at the time of checking financial statements. Not only that, receipts and notes are also very useful and can facilitate the process of audit and taxation.

 

Mathematical Error When Counting

Counting errors do not only happen to the culprits but also often happen to experienced accountants. This error often occurs when in a hurry or when tired so can not detect the error. Error calculating when combined with input and reconciliation errors can be a big mistake in the company's financial statements. Where, if the error is unknown for months can lead to a more complex problem when it wants to fix and resolve it.

 

Those are some of the most common mistakes in the accounting process. To reduce accounting mistakes many entrepreneurs are entrusting their business accounting process with accounting software. Journals, cloud-based online accounting software can help entrepreneurs in making financial reports instantly. Not only that, with Journal accounting software, you can also monitor financial reports anywhere and anytime in real-time. For more info on Journals, you can see here.





For its eighth post, “salsa” liked a really stupid post so much that its controlling wetware almost simultaneously copypasted it under two different accounts, then praised it with a self-evident sockpuppet.

I wonder what is so significant about this post?  Why did this idiocy warrant such attention?

Putative original, by an account which last posted on 2017-11-22, although its profile page shows a login as recently as 2018-03-20 (mostly ungrammatical posts; interests include: airdrops, altcoins, “transaction accelerators”, praising the S2X team...):

One point I'd like to make is that while Blockchain is a topic that is often associated with Bitcoin, it can exist entirely independent of Bitcoin. There's lots of technical and intellectual "baggage" associated with Bitcoin, and those negatives shouldn't prejudice someone as to the possible uses of Blockchain.

your website is really good. that's really help me as beginners to understand important concepts surrounding cryptos.

Well, I suppose that’s “original” in the sense that I have no evidence of it having been plagiarized.  What a contribution to the forum!

Please guarantee that that shall have been the last-ever post by that account—and if any other linkage can be found, please terminate this person’s posting career!

I found the user mithrim has repeatedly posted merit stat graphs and tables, which were originally created by zentdex and posted in the threads:

[1] Merit Stat from theymos data
[2] Where the Merit Pours?

to German local threads and LoyceV's Merit data analysis.  Thanks to these posts, mithrim has collected 11 merits so far.

The problem is that mithrim typically does not cite zentdex, and seems to be pretending as if the materials were created by mithrim.  mithrim sometimes gave a credit to zentdex, but the citation is very small: For instance, you can see "*Quelle" at the end of this post for a link to zentdex's original post.

zentdex signed like "stats: by zentdex" in some of the graphs / tables, but not all.  As zentdex's analysis is quite informative, I understand people want to share it, and zentdex would be happy about that.  Needless to say one needs to give a correct credit to zentdex's hard work.

The correct way is to quote zentdex's original posts.  However, mithrim never quote the zentdex's posts.  The following is the current list of mithrim's posts.  I must say they are plagiarism, please check them carefully.

The proper way to do this would be using the quote function. Example:

I don't think he should be banned (which is what this thread is for), but I do think he should adjust his references to be actual quotes.

Don't try and convince them. You can explain why you're doing it and what you've done so far, but the more you try and convince someone to do something the less likely they are to do it.

Plus be careful, if they lose money they'll probably blame you. And if they make money, not necessarily thank you.

I do not see the difference as creating these graphs and tables require a lot of efforts as you know, and it seems to me that posting them pretending as if he created them is nothing but plagiarism.

There are many exchanges, but the leaders of Binance and bittrex. what about bittrex? It is the best altcoin exchange, commission fees are very straightforward and simple. No matter how much you trade.
Binance - is the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world.

I like two exchanges most of all - Bittrex and Binance:)

Binance - is the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world. System of protection from hackers' attacks is high.

P.S: I hope that i'm not wrong about this, i will appreciate to let me know.

I'm not sure what's this user Dhara1 trying to do,
but failing to quote and no additional contents in his post makes me believe it's a (failed) bot thing or intentionally copy paste
and most of his earlier posts are repeated one liner post with less than 5 words
I did a quick check on three of his last posts and this the result (each copied from another post in the same thread)

I understand how important it is to give an effort and do your best in order for you to get what you really want. I am just starting to think if it's worth it to quit my job and start focusing on this. It's bizarre seeing people making a good profit on this, in trading, choosing or investing on those good ICOs. It's not that easy, you have to give time to read and search at the same time be careful not ending up with a lot of scams going on online.

Firstly make clear how far their understanding of markets is, secondly explain btc as a currency without governemtns or companies beeing able to regulate without beeing directpart of it (e.g. selling or buying huge ammounts of cc), for sure they can take party in evaluating the price on the market by taking part in public understanding of btc.
Further try to explain the system of mining and feeing trasactions in the system

Wow, never thought that trying to be more active and helpful would end up in me being in a witch-hunt.
The images even have a watermark and show that they are by zentdex. I never edited them or cropped his name out, I also linked to him or the original thread.

What boggles me is, if you have a problem with the way I post, why wouldn't you say something to me personally? I would've edited the posts, no problem. I don't want to get credit for something I didn't do and I also create infographics and statistics myself, so I know how much work this can be.
You say that the citation is "very small". It's the normal font face and size. The problem now is - as I don't have any problem with making the links red and bold or actual quotes - even if I would do this, you'd only accuse me of trying to hide something.

It's so easy to point a finger and accuse someone of what might be considered a minor forbearance.
What's your angle here? Do you want to 'defend' zentdex? Do you want me to get banned? What do you want? You obviously don't want me to change the way I credit someone's work, else you would've talked to me, at least once.
This level of distrust resp. pessimistic/destructive behavior really saddens me. If you want to improve things, talk to people. Or am I just not worth it and it's easier to get rid of things that annoy you?

I really don't know what to say to your accusation as I only try to bring things to the local board as not all members frequent the Meta forum.
You're also saying that I never quote posts when I repost content and that's just not true. Until right now I figured that this is a forum and not some kind of board where someone's posts are being 'checked carefully' like in a scientific paper. But even there you cite the source and don't insert a photo of the original article whenever you refer to something as it's not mainly about who made the content you referred to but about what can be learned from it. I never claimed the work as mine and gave a source.

So, as you seem to have a problem with the way I posted but never saw the necessity to say this directly to me, either via PM or under one of my posts but instead, you chose to accuse me of plagiarism in a thread that aims to permaban someone, what do you propose?
To be honest, as irritating as this might be (and it is, at least for me), it also shows a nasty side effect of the new Merit System. Until now I never even thought about plagiarism in the way you obviously do. I saw this forum as a means of exchanging information.. but well, learning never stops.

Next time I re-post content, I'll use the quote-function, so that everybody is happy.
And for future reference: If someone has a problem with me or the things I did, please talk to me.

Proof-of-stake is the most common alternative to proof-of-work. Proof-of-work wastes too many computational resources. The difference between POW and POS is that in POS, a miner doesn't need to solve the puzzle; instead the miner needs to prove ownership of the stake to mine the block. In the POS system, ether in accounts is treated as a stake, and the probability of a miner mining the block is directly proportional to the stake the miner holds. So if the miner holds 10% of the stake in the network, it will mine 10% of the blocks. But the question is how will we know who will mine the next block? We cannot simply let the miner with the highest stake always mine the next block because this will create centralization. There are various algorithms for next block selection, such as randomized block selection, and coin-age-based selection. Casper is a modified version of POS that tackles various problems of POS.

I do not see the difference as creating these graphs and tables require a lot of efforts as you know, and it seems to me that posting them pretending as if he created them is nothing but plagiarism.
I don't see him pretending he's the creator. The references he uses aren't "forum-style quotes", but clear enough to make it clear someone else created it.
The main reason why I would prefer a quote for on-forum usage, is standardization: it makes it easier to quickly see it's a quote than looking for a "quelle".
After a more thorough look, I would for sure not call this plagiarism.

Next time I re-post content, I'll use the quote-function, so that everybody is happy.
I think this is good to do in general. And when quoting, try to make them as small as possible without removing context. If it's just an image you're quoting to show it on a local board, I'd say removing all English text and only showing the image is just fine.

And for future reference: If someone has a problem with me or the things I did, please talk to me.
I can only speak for myself, but in general I don't talk to the accounts I'm reporting. If I report them in this thread, they deserve a ban, and I don't expect talking to them to change anything.
I do sometimes PM people about posts (for example when they accidentally link to a phishing site instead of bitcointalk.org). In your case, I think you can make peace with sncc if you just quote images. I've seen both of you around for a while, both post enough quality to earn a nice amount of Merit, and I don't think this difference of interpretation should make you guys mortal enemies.

Your Source-link shows: "You have either reached a page that is unavailable for viewing or reached your viewing limit for this book."
This alternative works: https://edoc.site/building-blockchain-projects-pdf-free.html


Not all reports in this thread have been banned yet. If theymos makes a list of banned account available as data dump, I want to list them all for easy banning.
If that won't become available, I can only check who has recently posted something.

I agree, the quote function makes it 'cleaner'. I didn't use it that much until now because it makes everything harder to read as things get smaller and in many cases, it breaks the reading flow. But this incident here made me a bit more aware that people are actually concerned about plagiarism and that this seems to be important to them.
In the coming days, I'll successively go through my past posts and check them carefully  Wink

[...] I don't think this difference of interpretation should make you guys mortal enemies.

No worries, I harbor no ill feelings. As this is my hobby I have absolutely no intentions of having mortal enemies, my free time is much too valuable for that Cheesy
