Gerald Belman is a stupid middle age turdburger - he went to Martha Dyke university in the 60's and has no problem (for some annoying reason) walking into a public bathroom barefoot. You can reach him at [email protected] - That's right . . . compuserve.

Would the internet, as we know it, exist if nobody clicked on stupid pop up ads or banner advertisements? - I'm going to tie this in with free to play games in the end so don't get your undles in a bundle. That's right, I said it . . . your UNDLES!!!
