Subject RE: BOOBIES!
Date Sun, 23 Jul 2006 15:29:16 GMT
Please everyone, drop this!!!  I don't know about you, but I get far too
many emails as it is.  Just use this forum as intended and keep the
superfluous emails out.

Charles, if you're not the original poster, then you shouldn't have jumped
in to the original posters defense and hence labeled a low-life.  You guys
have far too much time on your hands if this is what you choose to do with
your free time.  Get out of the house, go to the beach, lake or other hot
weather respite...
