  1. After I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new feedback are added” checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any method you’ll be able to take away me from that service? Thanks

  2. Well, people should not wish for these billionnaires to share a chunk if money that they have – it’s a slothful thinking

    If seriously, somebody wants to be a billionaire like them, they should start working hard and seek and apply similar ways that these tycoons did rather than spending time wishing and gazing on other people’s fortune

  3. LOLz for “Rod Magaru $0 B Philippines”…
