So ISD employs filthy officers like you? Makes me laugh. I am sorry, doesn’t sound scary at all and perhaps because you have claimed yourself to be an ISD officer, I should send this comment and all its location details to the police asking for an explanation on why they employ such a crude person like you. However at the same time, I know that you aren’t even real.

REAL people are monitoring my activities all the time, so what?

At least I spend my time contributing to the society than maliciously trolling the blogs of others and filling their blogs with filthy and crude words.
