don't you have anything better to do with your time? I got it the first time and I get it now. I chose to ignore him, I will post what I want, where I want, and to whomever I want. Its not my fault you or anyone else does not have RR. This issue should have been dead days ago, and there would probably be no more binary files. But now you ass I will post more stupid pics of myself and family on vacation in my Viggen. So when others are waiting on their slow connections they can thank you.
