    Oh yes, this is also a bogus review for a bogus poster. The guy is useless and this review is 99% likely to be completely fabricated.

    er, wrongo. 'zero-tolerance' needs a hyphen. you're putting adjective + noun together to make a modifier of 'approach.'

    You only really need a hyphen when the interpretation would be otherwise ambiguous. Since 'zero' can't modify 'approach' it's not compulsory here; style manuals can easily be Googled that argue both ways.

    i'm a chicago man myself, and i hate 'zero tolerance' as a modifier without a hyphen.

    but anyway, screw this grammar crap, let's get back to the issue at hand: what sandbag's instructor is gonna do when he reads this shite review. how hard could it be to figure out which of his students is sandbag?

    Once again, I'd like to reiterate the fact that this is most likely a joke post/review.

    I google'd "shu gun do" and the only link that actually referred to "shu gun do" was to this thread. Therefore, I am inclined to believe that the review was entirely fabricated.

    obvious troll is obvious.

    Does that meant when I tell people to "suck a fat baby's dick" that I need to hyphenate fat-baby? Otherwise fat might describe the dick?

    not in the slightest. any idiot can figure that out.

    but when i tell people to lick an aids-ravaged crack whore's cum-filled asshole, well, you get the idea. the hyphens keep things together.

    Pretty funny review.

    You're an idiot if you have to ask if it's real.

    I kind of figured after seeing that thread Phrost posted about sponsors getting to ban someone that Sandbag2 would get the vote after all the useless **** he posted.

    But the way you all reply seriously to his trolls and have to ask if he's serious probably gives him endless joy. Just thought I'd point that out for you since quite a few of you don't get it.

    Also curious why the mods just don't ban his ass and get rid of him.
