Hey, have you noticed that no one but the same 10 geezers are posting on all these stories? You dullards have chased everyone away with all of your worthless opinions. None of you has ever had anything new to say. You spew the same bullshit on every post and every story. God you people are boring. This blog has become worse than KC Confidential.
