    Come on guys... It costs the government millions of dollars to get someone into witness protection. Why do you guys insist on outing Tony like that? If his cover gets blown one more time, he's gonna end up looking like Dustin Hoffman in "Tootsie".

  • Now what you folks fail to realize is that Vanilla is a very, very complicated program !
    Sure, it can ban someone within 1 hour if that person says "Booger Eater", but recovering a user's name and password ?
    It's a Herculean task that can only be rectified by magic !!
    .... probably want to throw in a little Vodoo, too, as that really isn't magic.

    It’s when those Girl Scout cookie kids come knocking that you have to worry. Lay low Tony, and you will get by.... unless they are already in the house.

    My understanding is Vanilla Purgatory was one of the performing names that didn't test well in focus groups held on behalf of this guy.
