#2 Yep and some are $5000 I guess each one is sort of hand made (apart from the parts he has made) and they are very beautiful. I'd like to see a few colours on them, would be quite psychedelic. :D

#5 I agree, it's starting to become annoying that when I see that there are new messages, and looking forward to messages from Snotr friends and then seeing this crap when opening up the page. :x

The first thing to do is down vote them, if they get enough down votes they disappear from view. Hopefully ADMIN will read these messages and get rid of them. In the mean time can I put out a shout to people who come onto snotr to watch the video's to leave a comment, just an hello would be nice and if you are not subscribed, do so, it only takes a moment.
