On a different note, we are still very much overwhelmed with the growing support and attention our site has received. We thank all our loyal readers from the bottom of our hearts. Your loyalty continues to inspire us to give you the very best that we can give.
And for our detractors, we only wish you well. It is sad that some people still continue with their mean ways and bring their colleagues down so that they can get all the recognition. I wish a change in their heart could be as easy as submitting oneself to Tampa cosmetic surgery. These guys definitely need a personality lift, if there was such a thing.
