Thank you Tim.
I'm convinced that people like HPT will lie tooth and nail just to
back up Linux and the so called Linux supporters, like Roy and Mark.
All of these people make all kinds of accusations yet they never seem
to provide any proof and when a person asks for proof they even make
fun of that request by brushing it off.
I've asked a simple question.
Prove I am Gary Stewart.
I've offered to contribute to a charity of the person's choice.
People keep making the accusation, stating it like it is fact yet they
can't seem to prove it.
And if they can't even prove I am one person, how on earth can they
prove I am all the people in that ridiculous list?
I am a couple of them BTW, only because I've changed ISP's several
times over the years.
And they can't even prove those ones without help from me.
Frankly this group has become a total fraud.
A maniac spammer who is a liar and thief as well who has a couple of
wannabes hanging around him.
That's about the size of it.
