    Ask brimstone. He seems to enjoy subbing people, especially if you agree to rep him (although you can't know, so hmmmmmmmmm!). He's subbed >> 10 people and probably holds the record in terms of # of subs bought per unit time.

    I only sub people I think deserve it ... if they're nice, friendly or I get on with them, I might sub them. However, I plan to sub one more person only ... and I know who that is ... because I can't afford it.
    Anyways, I've subbed Nightowl before, haven't I?
