    Tanveer is quite a youthful, considerate, wise, and intelligent young man. I wish we had more Tanveers on planet Earth. He happens to care for others and does have an impact in our world. Ain’t no hater, that boy … ain’t no hater … but, perhaps, fed up.

    I certainly remember. I was “Hekyll” for a day, but even freaked myself out over that. Man, we were some fat kids. Either way, you had one single account – so, no sockpuppetry on your end.
