Please play nice. If you didn't receive something from me that you were supposed to, please PM me.I never flake (i'm so all about karma), so it may have gotten lost in the mail.If this happens I will do my best to get a replacement to you. Also, I always rate and would appreciate it if you would do the same. If I leave a group it's me, not you. I prob haven't participated and don't wanna clog up space for someone else.
