Wow. We can post on schedule

I was just looking back through the calendar of posting for earlier this year and was amused by the sporadic posting schedule that I “followed”.

I just want to preface this posting with the obvious: This is my personal investigation of the site. I could be wrong, though I don’t think I am. If you’ve got more information on this website, I’m all ears. Hateno.com. Is. A. Scam. I thought I’d make it really simple for everyone as to what point I’m trying to convey here.
