[at-l] Evidence Of Trailplace Effectiveness

Truth? Wingfoot did very little, he was just the guy taking the credit. It's
the folks that sent the emails that deserve the credit, well unless you are
saying that Wingfoot falsified a bunch of emails.
Why don't you give it a rest. I have given you the courtesy of reading your
posts here and on TP for over a year now, and frankly I'm getting fed up
with the "Look at me Um a Trail Maintainah" Um better than everyone else,
give me credit, worship me. God man are you that insecure that you have to
constantly have to keep carrying on.
If you love Wingfoot so much go Marry him, or get yourself an old fashion
bath tub, cut it in half, burry the cut end in the ground with it standing
vertically, and put a picture of WF inside so you can kneel before it and
worship your idol. Frankly I didn't used to have anything against Wingfoot,
but with all your "blabberin" I'm beginning to develop a case of dislike for
the guy.
There you have the honor of receiving my first  flame in over 15 years on
line, though it isn't much of a flame.
