this sight is, and has been a thorn in the side of my marriage. even though my wife has encouraged me on multiple occasions to keep my membership it still causes problems. i can't say anything even remotely complimentary, and if that is the case then why be a part of a sight that is as interactive as SG is? i can't think...
