  16. Dean

    This, if I read correctly is NOT a giveaway at all !!!! That’s false advertising, and look at all the comments to see how successful the falsehood is!! – the thing clearly stated that only TWO people would get this thing, but the rest (undoubtedly) will be on some mailing list for ever after. Change the title, it’s NOT a giveaway at all change it to contest!! and stop being so ‘shonky’

    | |
