You'll notice that Roy doesn't have the balls to use a real email address or
even bother to netmail me. This isn't the first time Roy's snuck around and
talked trash to me privately because he's not got the balls to do it in public.
Poor Roy has to do this to people in Fidonet since he's not got the power to do
anything better with his life...


Later,
Sean
