Then if you agree with me you don't understand me.

I never said outsiders shouldn't post. We're all outsiders at one

I'm saying if you're a halfwit troll losing an argument don't make up
accounts and post as pseudonyms just to impress others.

Read the FAQ.

> Are you an expert in codes, Tom?

I have code-fu, but also crypto-fu, math-fu and wtf-fu.

I'm hardly unique in this respect though. Many others here have
combinations of "fu" that occasionally are stronger than my fu.

If you just read the group long enough you'll see the players and the
haters. Respect the players, try to understand the haters and do your
own thing.
