I hope every one of you fuckers who dismissed my concerns loses your life's
work, maybe that'll teach you a little bit about empathy. And I officially
unsubscribe from NB Disgust as of this moment. As for your complaints about
my breaking your precious little rules of English grammar & paragraph
organization: I'm really sorry about that, don't let it ruin your day.
