  11. First of all, yuki-chan, everyone has cheated at least once in their life. Second of all, Mrs. Sue has been rude to many people before and she doesn't even know half of the things she comments on. Finally, Jason has a right to say his own opinion just like everyone else does. Good on ya Jason :)

  18. First of all, thank you Mrs. Sue, for the help.
    Second of all, it's easy to pretend to be Mrs. Sue, just put it in the name slot and pretend as if you're her.
    She's just trying to help you guys out, you needn't be so rude to her.

  22. firstly, ms sue is not one person. a lot of people use that name or type it in, so you can't really blame her (or whoever Ms sue really is). but I would advise you to be careful listening to those who label themselves as ms sue because a lot of those answers have been wrong before.

  23. Many people take the name of Ms. Sue but you can tell the real one by the teacher icon on the left side of her name, These icons show that they person is either a moderator of the site or a administrator or a member

  24. This post was made quite awhile ago, and I assume that everyone "dissing" her has matured at least a bit.
    Remember, this is a site to help others and give them tips on how to answer the question, not cheat and get the answer.
