  4. Hey guys, these are a bunch of tweets, all using #FreeBB and most including ‘Dec 16’ …use them as they are, edit them to make them your own, do as you like! Most of you are all over this like the legends that you are and may not need these at all ….we are going to start this at 9am Monday the 15th Texas time ….
  6. Also, just note, Kevin asked us not to make comparisons to Hunter Thompson – he just mentioned that sometimes it seems to send the crazies crazy …hehe - let's try not to upset folks!
