A sorry piece of scum living in his/her mothers basement with no life and nothing else better to do. He/she can't fit into society and wants everyone else to share in his/her loneliness and misery.... :evil:

Whats got me wonder was WHY no information what so ever was displayed on the two biggest social-media
(Facebook and Twitter) which have links on the homepage about the forum problem :thumbdown:

I think I wasn't the only one wondering, but Google finally found a link referring to some problem with the server
that houses the forum and it-mate.co.uk amongst others.
