Isso e' uma grandissima lastima que te sentes assim, pa!
Sorry 'bout your feeling thatta way theah, mate!

Hey watch it!

Maybe for you, Big G. but as for me I was thrilled to
read them and I say more power to you, Stan!

I guess it just depends on what your likes and dislikes are.

I really enjoyed the new insights on Gode that Stan was
able to add to the list. Indeed, it is one of the reasons
why I joined and I am still on the list. New and interesting
stuff to read and learn.

Maybe you could exercise your freedom of silence and delete
anything you don't wish to read. Have you ever noticed though
the big rift between one's "freedom of speech" and one's
"freeness of speech".  I kind of see it this way, one you have
the right to say what ever you want to and forget everyone else
the other you have the right to say what you should in view of
who you are. By this rule anything Stan wishes to say I will
have ears for. Keep up the good work there, Stan!

It is quite nice of you to want to instruct others on
internet protocols and your humble offer is duly
recorded on the big book of nice things done for
other and if you were a boy scout I'd give ya a pin.

No, but seriously, neat ascii signature Gustavo,
neat stuff! Muito bem!
