    I think that it is high time that you guys do your own research and write your stories instead of tiffing them from cmc. U have it before cmc puts it out. the same thing you do wif the news and you pay nofing for it. spend ur money for good stuff.

    FROM ADMIN: Why don’t you come by our offices and state your “thiefing” claim to the boss? His number is 615-2197. He likes meeting folks face to face and not behind a computer screen. He likes to know how many stories he “tiefing from CMC” and the cost. Let’s settle this in person. Don’t hide… nor run.
