Just one of the many rules designed to keep writers at a disadvantage to the quick, repetitive regurgitate of meaningless information and trivia, that the uninformed, uneducated, university graduate thrive on as it requires no thought or effort..

I often have a beter score when I stop submitting stories and poems.
FREE SPEACH? HA HA, WAKE UP, brother is watching.
