In today's Internet world, information, especially regarding controversies,
travel fast and stay for a long time. Anyone googling TS will find all of it

good and hardworking and dedicated members world-wide. Recently a friend of
mine, said once something is in writing somewhere, it is going to come out;
it is not a questions of whether, but a question of when.
