Here it is me (The original MRLIC) posting under your name to prove a point.
I will only do this this once because I don’t think it is right or ethical.


J-M G LIC, this initial switching you speak of can happen to anyone. This JOKER happened to pick mine. MonsieurLiC and SenorLIC I believe are all the FAKE MRLIC’s names he uses. I had the original and he hijacked it. I am going to post under J-M GLIC just to prove the point to you.


Could all the MRLIC stop playing with each other and just switch initials.Maybe a MRLICa >< MRLICb ????


Sacrebleu! I cannot believe the FAUX poster is impersonating my American relative the RÉAL MRLIC.


Once again the FAKE MRLIC who posted August 9, 2016 3:29 pm thinks he is the REAL MRLIC. I have had enough of your childish behavior. I’m a proud New Yorker, I bowl a solid game and I’m aroused by pink sculptures. I wear my skirt like any other Dame and you FAKE MRLIC can’t bring me down.


I don’t know why the FAKE MRLIC who posted August 9, 2016 3:38 am thinks he is the REAL MRLIC. That JOKER should just give up already.


The FAKE MRLIC has many mindless thoughts as you can see by the August 8, 2016 7:45 pm post. Why doesn’t this JOKER just give up already.


I really just don’t want all those HIPSTERS to start asking questions about lawyers at the bottom of the ocean. Back in the day, everyone in the neighborhood knew where the mob put concrete boots on lawyers who wouldn’t help open more bowling alleys.


He’s at it again. The FAKE and I mean FAKE MRLIC wrote the August 8, 2016 post at 5″53 am. I said I will continue to expose the FAKE posts when I encounter them. Hopefully this JOKER will post under his own handle one day instead of hijacking mine.


I will continue to expose all the FAKE MRLIC posts I come across. Why this joker can’t speak for himself is unbelievable,he seems he has to speak through my MRLIC name.


I see the FAKE MRLIC is at it again. I did not write the 2 posts on August 7th at 8:25 & 8:30 PM. Please don’t listen to this JOKER.
