Remember, as new post are added, all the other stuff gets moved more and more back, what happend to be page 84 a week ago, is now page 97. Next week it will be page 112.... I just keeps moving.
So, like I said right now it's page 97... Just look for my post by date & time... I posted it March 24th @ 10:48pm.
I never delete stuff. I say what I say, and move on. So if you ever seen a post by me, it will always be out there (somewhere). The only way my post get deleted is by moderators or admins, which has happened quite a bit... I'm a sailor, what can I say?
