    1.) I'm too intimidating.

    2.) My rates are 4x normal bookkeeping rates.

    3.) I only take clients whose referrals I like.

    4.) I have no athletic prowess. My talent lies in showing up... over
    and over again. I'm good at trying. I can't teach that.

    5.) You're a raving asshole whose posts I almost never read and whose
    conversations are almost entirely with people I have kill-filed. The
    courtesy of a reply isn't something you should look for.

    Now bugger off. If your friend wants to post here it's a free world.

    Don't kid yourself. You;re more emotional than most here

    There was no miscommunication - that's par for the course here as well,
    (tax accountants here charge around $175/hour)

    I don't know where you get 'raving' asshole. I don't rave.

    I wouldn't say 'persistence' was a talent although I can see your logic.
    After all by your definition 'turning up' enough times makes you an athlete

    I'll settle for anything other than 'asshole'. Maybe just an 'all around
    good guy'?

    DOH!

    I keep trying to respond in intellectual terms with it. I feel like I'm
    beating my head against a brick wall.

    I think it might help if I think of David as a less amusing version of
    Tavington... a subtle troll, but entirely troll nonetheless.

    Sorry. I don't normally read him. I'll shut up now.

    If a few people here just stopped treating certain other people like
    lepers, and ceased this interminable nonsense concerning "trolls",
    normal conversation would return and this Group would begin to get
    back on its feet.

    The likes of John Williams, Lee Michaels and Wendy have much to answer
    for.

    I purchased all three of the generic versions of Viagra Cialis and
    Levitra from http://www.canadadrugdepo.com. I got these drugs at a
    very cheap price. When I cut the viagras in half and use 50 mg also, it
    works fine for me. I have been using viagra right from the time it
    came out years back in the market and really loved it. After that I
    tried Cialis when it came out. this was called "the weekender" because
    it was supposed to last up to 36 hours, but it wasn't as effective as
    viagra or maybe I was just used to getting the hard steel pipe erection
    from viagra.
