didn’t you QUIT MO, Christian??!

hard to give up an addiction, enit? ;)

at least you took your fingerprint photo down. but now, how will we ever confirm your personal data??!

like I just said to Noah, your good work here is appreciated. date free obsies: not so much.

that doesn’t make me or others who also think so an “asshole” (quote from my laughable arch-nemesis, Mikey Wood on the MO Facebook page!) or “crazy” like you so charmingly put it, but it does make me a stickler for good work.

yeah, it’s tough being held to standards, but the community benefits when everyone does their best work, even the Bratty Duo!

yes …

turns out our western G. castaneus is NOT the same as the eastern castaneus. It awaits a new name.
