    It's not always financial. Sometimes people are just jerks.

    There's a pretty interesting documentary done about a guy (actually it's the MTV Catfishing guy) who was catfished. Really well done and an eyeopener. I'd recommend it to anyone in an online-but-we-havent-met-yet-romance.

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    From the MPD thread?

    Like I said in that thread..... people on here that create MPD accounts are on the same level. They just don't scam for profit. All of the other traits are there

    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa
