No, I said I don’t believe that favoritism is real. Pile-ons were not part of any conversation until just now. I’m sure pile-ons are real because one happened to me once, out of nowhere with no actual reason. I’ve been reminded that a few posters in the past may have gotten some favoritism, and I’m not entirely clear… Read more
Okay, then, please enlighten me. Because the entire thing isn’t clear. Are we saying people who post here often and have for a long time get perks? Because I haven’t really seen anyone get perks.

It’s especially frustrating to watch… Read more
I love 826 Valencia. Such an excellent idea.
