Re: WSB (Top Literary Cunt) Was Quiet on Being a Father.

when graham rae aka only me admits that he started the thread WSB Was A Lying Myopic Cunt, to "be contentious and rattle cages," one has to come to the conclusion that he totally missed the part in the netiquette where keith asks posters not to be assholes. chances are he missed the rest as well. tr...
