Huh? Epacy is not mean- you should wait and see what it's like to have some of the other posters correct you..........

He is not mean. He is active, well informed, makes logical arguments and provides novel scoops to the board. Sure he is our boards, self nominating repost policeman but that hardly makes him "mean". Furthermore the board could use WAY less reposting. It would save most of us, especially the loayal readers of most of the posts a TON of wasted time.

Ignore this crap Epacy.
