58 It's really funny how you keep thinking that whatever you say matters
59 to anyone but you. Really funny.

74
75 I don't care what do you say, how do you think I'm acting or how do
76 you "treat" me. As others have said in others threads (with less kind
77 words), you are kind of a joke for many of us in this list.
78
79 At most, I would pity you. But it's more entertaining to just laugh at you.

91 You are the only one complaining about it my dear. Since a long time,
92 you are the only one complaining.
93
94 > If you would at least posting something useful. Nope. You don't.
95
96 First of all, obviously that's not for you to decide. Second, that's
97 *really* something coming from *you*.
98
99 Keep it up, my dear Volker. You are really good for a few laughs.
