Member since Sep-27-13
The account <john barleycorn> has received a kibitzing suspension for 6 hours due to the following post:

john barleycorn: "A Bust To The London System"? <So> cannot even bust a London Rubber.

REASON: Keep it clean please.

Due to the brevity of this suspension, it may not be appealed. You will be able to post again at 2018-01-25 20:59:41 USA/Eastern.

Thank you for understanding, Staff >

<One of your “fans” bought you a free account, congratulations!

Best regards,
Daniel Freeman
