Terry C,
That one was a gunade and didn't have a sign in front of it. I'm not sure if that one was actually used in the battle.

Who is this guy?
He has a total of 3 posts on 3 different threads and none of them make a lick of sense.

Zulu. That poster sounds like a Bot. Needs better programming IMO.

That post is a direct quote of part of post #3 ("At this point, my biggest concern is the weight of everything. I'm probably the meanest 66 year old you know, but I'm still worried. After the iron work is installed, these cheeks could weigh close to 300 lbs. each.")

I know it was a direct quote of something I said. One of his others was a direct quote of something someone else said..
The third one was just a bunch of gibberish.

It was appeared to be an intelitext type bot. Not sure if directly related to the program or a hacker. Intelitext was part of its profile. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IntelliTXT

I get something along these lines on other Forums I visit. But they work a little different than this. If I search the Forum The key words I searched will show up in bold or colored letters in the posts. I do not click on those bold key letters or it will take you to others places.

Awesome work! I'll be in San Antonio in a couple weeks. I'll have to swing by and check it out in person.

If you ever need a furnace/forge to heat something thick up to bend it, let me know. I'm just on the other side of Houston from you.
