This comment is why you should never delete your comment if it has a few red thumbs. I remember when this was like down 3 thumbs so I thumbed it up and I guess a trend soon followed, now look what it has. Nice job man.

You pointed out that it was an old article as if everyone DIDN'T know that.
OP said it was old, so you honestly had no reason to point it out yourself,.
