I wish I could say something that would encourage you, Dustin. Perhaps, the
future will be better than you could have ever imagined. That's what
happened for me, anyway.

I'm a bit of a geek... and even more unusual a female geek.. sort of LOL
.... try wrapping your mind around that bit of irony ... only I am better at
the creative stuff .. LOL I think the notion that geeks (or computer
people) have an antisocial bent is a misinterpretation of the reality that
most of us are independent, practical, creative, artistic people, and also
good at math.. Are you good at math?? :) Creative people don't have the
same need for alot of social acceptance... not that creative people don't
enjoy it ... we just don't depend on it like some other personality types
might. FWIW.. you don't seem antisocial to me at all.. just normal. LOL

Actually, the older a person gets, the more comfortable it gets being true
to ones self. You are 33? It gets better ....... :)

I'll simply quote David Lipman who said in this thread .........

"They blocked access to an IP and had signature detection for his
plagiarized utility."

I cannot answer for him/her.

However, *if* there actually was a 'Law of Averages' is would say,
categorically, that *some* of those appointed as MVP's *must* be BAD guys.

Whilst I cannot prove same to you, Robear Dyer (PA Bear) has lied, many
times, about me having been banned by one or more ISP's. I have never,
ever, been banned by any ISP. As he has lied about that, he may well not
be the Mr Nice Guy some folk think he is.

I was once seconded to an audit team to carry out a routine check of the
Chief Petty Officers Mess Fund at RNAS Culdrose, Helston, Cornwall. The
supervising officer of that fund, a professional 'Suppy and Secretariat'
officer was subjected to my 'outside the box' questioning.

Long story short - he ended up in prison for embezzlement and was
dismissed from the Royal Navy. I got a pat on the back!

Every question I ask has a reason to it, not always obvious to the
recipient. It soon becomes obvious to me who is honest and
straight-forward and those who are less so!
