You offer all these things but never follow up. You do this just to look good and to feed your ego. Shame on you.

Not, you appear to be a highly accomplished instigator of everything with which I want nothing to do/ :) Name-changers don't impress me at all.

But do you every really DO ANYTHING? No, you say your going to do this or that but you never follow up. You have hurt many people around you with your empty promises.

John Edwards, I can only guess that you are not addressing me. If I am wrong and you are indeed talking to me, please quote me rather than comment in general. I have yet to say even one time any specific 'thing' I am "going to do".
