Those in glasshouses should not throw stones :hmmm:

And if you don't have anything nice or constructive to say, then don't say it.

Actually this dude's punctuation/spelling etc, while not perfect, is easily understood. And thus is totally OK with me. Particularly on the fucking goddamned internet, fucks sake.

Get annoyed if you're marking an English essay he wrote for you (not in the least because that implies that you are COMPLETELY wasting your life and everyone elses oxygen by being a fucking "English" teacher of some sort), but otherwise STFU and get off the internet.

I'd recommend Peter Page at Doctor Bike then
http://www.doctorbike.co.nz/

He's who I would get to build me up a new set of DH wheels :)
