Mounce, he's a mod. You've been here over a year and didn't know people with 10 bubbles are mods? very rarely do people even hit 8+ bubbles. Back before I started posting, users with 8-9 and even 10 bubbles are much more common than they are now.

You can guarantee they are just sitting their watching where companies go and how to bypass the law and will just add to the law to force their hand again.

"Well you need a key to this locked door, we can't give you anything."

HEADLINE: Government requires keys to every door in the country!
