I haven't been a Broowaha contributor for very long, but so far so good. I've been browsing the site today and I am very impressed with the quality of the articles and authors who contribute.

Well, actually, I did know that you had it in you, I just wondered what it would take to get you to loose your venom again. I found one of the comments about my Postal article to say, â€œAbsolutely a horrible, unbalanced article.â€ Unfortunately, that person chose to hide behind a cover of anonymity so I cannot post a reply â€“ not that I would and I suppose that in some way, this is a response, but not one of much consequence.
