    You know, you continually preach about not using offensive language at this site, and then consistently do. But, and here’s the kicker, I think you actually think using a strike-through on a word like jackass negates the use of the word in public… and I’m guessing you think putting &# in the middle of fuck somehow makes that okay… well, newsflash, that language is either okay, or it isn’t, and if you’re going to use the word fuck, at least have the balls to actually use it. There are kids on this site, but I have news for you, a kid knows what the word f&#K is supposed to be… So, if you really want to not have those terms used, how about you stop using them and pretending you’re doing it in some intelligent way? Your just a holier than thou foul mouthed moron who thinks he should be able to do what he wants while slamming others… Good job.

    Thanks for your email address at mike@archangeldigital.com

    So Mr. Mike DeLaney from Albuquerque, New Mexico, I do like your nice site and being owner of http://www.archangeldigital.com/

    Just a tiny little word of advice. Really cheesing people off so publicly is clearly not a good idea, now is it?.

    Really. Good job, sunshine!

    Not bad for a “moron” I’d say?

    Note: Rule No.1. Never ever give out your naked e-mail address. [I do look forward to hear you being really disappointed in getting an avalanche of spam. Pity.]

  • Mike

    Something else to add to your previous and redacted eloquence?

  • SJStar

    Ah! Now you are mimicking me as “Guest” and “SJStar.” What a fracking coward and psycho!!!

    Let see “Mike” now be changed to “Guest” to again avoid identification”

    So Mike DeLaney is the same as “Mike” and “Guest”, bagging me twice just to reenforce your own distorted views. It is a pretty low act.

    Actually, just to be clear, I responded above as myself. When you edited away the offensive text, I clicked to the right to delete the post, as I didn’t really see the need for it at that point. However, instead of deleting the actual comment, it just removed my authorship of it. At which point, you came in and made another comment, which was just periods, which elicited my last response.

    As far as using my name, feel free. And? You want to advertise my website? Great. lol

    But why did you remove your threats? See, disqus sends me what you actually wrote, so I’ll paste it in here for everyone to see just how unhinged you are:

    So, just so we’re clear, you plan to take information from this site and use it to spam me and my business. LOL How precious. Also, anyone can hover over you above and see that each iteration of SJStar here is you… So…. try again on that one.

    Anyway…. One wonders when the people that run this site will realize what a troll you clearly are.

  • Mike

    They teach you how to extrapolate websites from an email address? Wow, little Kiwi chum, you’re so smart. How in the world did you figure that one out?

  • scott
  • SJStar

    Why should anyone have anything to do proven stinking American turd?

    After all the BS you throw at me, what it comes back too, is you are a liar and a fraud.

    I promise none with forget it!

  • Mike

    How crazy are you? You should seriously consider some meds.

  • SJStar

    You are a proven liar and a fraud. So just shut the frack up!

    I set a DVR timer to record ‘The Captains Close Up’, and I think I have the first episode on there already but I haven’t watched it yet. I’m looking forward to it though because I really enjoyed the original documentary; I wonder how similar they are. In fact, I just rewatched ‘The Captains’ a few days ago when I stumbled across it on dishanywhere.com. Trying out all these different services is one of the things I love about working for DISH. DISH Anywhere allows me to watch thousands of TV shows and movies at no additional cost and I’ve found a few shows that I really like on there that I don’t think I would have been exposed to otherwise.
