Special thanks to the InsanelyMac board and its members, who are testing the script and report issues.

##From STLVNUB Seeing as how I got BANNED from InsanelyMac for trying to get something done about the amount of SPAM that the forum was getting I will NOT be able to participate in any discussion as regards this brilliant script. I've been at IM for 12 years and quite frankly I'm a little bit pissed off. But I won't use this as a sounding board other than saying the Admins at IM are doing a crap of a job.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
