I don't see your main point here, and so far your function on this list
has been to be contrary without proof and to insult people.  What's your
objective in all these inflamitory postings?  You're speading just as much
disinformation as anyone else.  You admitted earlier that you aren't
familiar with the sign enough to know the fine, and with 3 differing
amounts from 3 people, it's difficult to think that anyone is.  If you
care that much about being able to ride in your little tunnel, why not
just ask someone who knows?  That's so much easier than trying to prove
dick size on the internet.
