Yet another misinformed person spewing misinformation they heard from another misinformed person who heard it from the Mailman's, dog's, sister's uncle's, Next-Door Neighbor's Mother's, God Son's Aunt's, Grandfather's Bookie who swears he heard it STRAIGHT from the Horse's Mouth!. LOL
Glad you pointed out you might be misinformed.
