You kept posing brainteasers and you would answer each others'. So I thought you were just trying to look good to help with getting a job.Anyways, no ill-will intended, just making an observation...

He is a spammer; you only have to look at his two contributions in this very thread to see that. Most of his contributions to threads consist of a link to some webpage which I never bother reading. I don't mind people having differing(well-informed) opinions, but TJ's certainly aren't informed and he speaks on some subjects as if he is all-knowing. He quite frankly ruins some threads which would be perfectly OK without him, like the poster a few posts above me, if I go through a thread and see TJ has posted on it more than twice I give up. I wouldn't object to a ban.
