Here are the worst kinds of comments you should really stop leaving on YouTube.
Today I updated the numbers: I tried to put it politely, but I have not yet had a reply. It was sent almost 24 hours after my post. It is, I suppose, just possible that Kelleher was unaware of my post. Somebody is not telling the truth.
