"used to post here but has since moved on"

Probably someone who doesn't take criticism well and couldn't stand being told some of their ideas are stupid, and thinks their way is the right way, or if it works somewhat then it is fine.

We know how well that will work....I hope!
That must be quite the job draining that grey tank when the plumbing enters at the lowest point, especially after this "it" guy has been using the sink as a urinal.
I think I'll brush my teeth outside, thanks.

That's right. Around here it's our way or the highway!

Seriously, you have to read Zaphod's forum posts. He's a piece of work.

I did accidentally take a whiz in one of those big, communal camp sinks once, but never in showers, pools, or anywhere outside where people can't see me. I would NEVER do that.
