Louise: Sugar...come on..take this discussion else where...please
Lucrezia Borgia: Read the rules folks - please keep your conversations within the requested standards
"AW Investor": i am a little distressed that Hitler was allowed to stay here so long
Lucrezia Borgia: Sugar, this will be your last warning. 
"lQl": bout time
"sugar": The discussion is with you, Louise...and why you allow someone named "HItler" to stay, but not "I am gay".
Strife: Expressing those thoughts to the GK's will not change anything
"lQl": read this sign sugar!
