This has really gone too far.
We have NO IDEA who this JC BOURQUE is or what he's going to do with
our ten dollars. For all you know, he's just some bozo in Florida who
has figured out a way to bilk TP fans out of $10. Besides the fact
that the publicity stunt detailed here has a snowball's chance in
Albuquerque (as Gordon might say) of working, I think that it's really
really inadvisable on general principles to send this guy any money.
In general, by the way, I think this COOP thing is kind of silly.
"But that's just me." However, I urge even confirmed COOPsters to
treat this fishy little deal extremely gingerly.
