Dear tsuwm: There was nothing in the site to tell me it was yours. I posted
the URL, only to find when I tested it, it wouldn't work for some strange reason, so
I deleted it. I'll post it again.

http://members.aol.com/logoanon/index.html

PS As I said, the site comes up, but nothing works. Please tell me why.

Dear tsuwm: when you delete the scold, I'll delete the link.

it's NOT really my site, bill. but I strongly suspect that the words therein were lifted from my site, as they seem to comprise a rather limited (and old) subset of my list.

Dear tsuwm: When I finally took a look at the guestbook, I did see your address
on the e-mail form. But I thought your selection of pornography was not very
sensational. Couldn't you supply something better than a dildo in use?

ha ha, bill. but not nice to make that joke since some might take it seriously -- it might be a better idea for you (and etaoin) to remove the link before someone complains to the management.

Well, tsuwm. It wasn't exactly nice to scold me for not giving you credit when your name
was concealed. And the pornography was also hidden until you told me to search. But
I still say you could have chosen some more exciting pictures. Don't you think
auto-eroticism a bit passť?
