Another funny thing about anonymous posters. One of the reasons they often cite for posting anonymously is that they fear the trype of retaliation that I am experiencing, yet usually, they themselves are the ones guilty of such behavior. Kind of like the pot calling the kettle black. Again, for the record, AFG has never made any kinds of threats, blatant or thinly veiled, just don't accuse me of taking someone else's name, as if I too am an anonymous internet warrior. Email me at timtritchh@gmail, I'll send you my phone number and prove who I am. I find it insulting to be compared to any anonymous internet warrior.

@Tim: But what did she threaten you with? Are you saying it's the idea that your posts could affect business? I misinterpreted and thought you meant a threat to do you or yours harm. Maybe they were just offensive to you and not rally meant to threaten you?
