Note to MODS: Don't touch this thread. News and info is needed to keep people safe. Sit behind your computers with all the power you want...but I won't let people die because you are entitled.
New Note to MODS: I love you guys, keep doing what you are doing. I know stuff can get rough and you get a bad rap sometimes but you guys keep things a float. I'm sorry for my message above (which I will leave for legacy) but I hope you understand my temporary anger at the time. Real Talk: Keep up the great work!
