    A person by the name of TITS on D-Listed is organizing all of our little trolls on the Brad and Angie posts. “It” is on D-Listed right now being very nasty and anti-American about Mark Ruffalos brother having died.

    TITS is Devilgirl there and “it” talks to itself.

    TITS sounds like an evil terrorist with all of the Anti-American vitirol.

    These brothers are in my prayers and it makes me sick that something like those people on that site can be so nasty about human life!

    Look what they do to a good family on the Angie stories and now this innocent family too! Im sickened! I cant believe such evil people exist!

    A very hard and painful time for the family, to be sure !!!!……I wish them some peace, and my prayers are with the entire family….What a waste for such a young and handsome man……Those responsible WILL be punished !!!!!……….To NUMBER # 11….Anyone ” trashing ” and ” bashing “, like TITS IS the devil…..Just goes to show you, that there are people like this sub-being, who prey on others heartache’s and find fault with everyone different from their perfect selves………Such EVIL DOES exist, ” youv’e got mail “, even on these sites…….
    Look at the evil some of these beings inflict on the children of celebrities…..AND, I bet most have children themselves…..I feel so sorry for these children…Being raised in so much hate and selfishness…..

    ” Miss nyc, number # 13″ Gee, I bet your entire family can rely on you for all sorts of comfort and love, when a death takes a loved one. Or, do you actually love anything? How inconsiderate and sad you are.
    ” Victoria ” I side with your recent post. There are lots of evil people on this earth, and some are here on this site attacking kids right and left. How low do you have to be, to pick on children? Such low self esteem is abound, don’t you agree?…My prayers are with this grieving family right now. So sad, indeed !
