And don't you think the worse are those who complain about someone else "complaining".... damn, now I'm just like you. Looks like the anti-Kurt gang has a new member... or has one simply changed his/her nickname.

The usual complaining about everything! What a pain in the ass!

Kurt, first, please check your email and inbox and junk box.....
Second, the man had already been named by another of the island\\\'s English language news outlets.
Anything else?
