I find the aristocratic attitude towards this guy disturbing. I'm with the group on the whole "$20 is nothing" and "Jon's financials are none of our beeswax" stuff, but why blast the kid for being parsimonious? Is it totally contrary to the concept of owning a BMW, that elsewhere in life your money squeaks as it leaves your hand?

As for girl problems, who hasn't had those? Maybe ffej hit the lottery , but other mere mortals here made mistakes in the past. I feel fortunate now, but I haven't always been so fortunate.

This kid is a real guy that obviously has some self esteem issues going on. The venom and lack of compassion from you guys really bothers me. That's not appropriate, and the punishment being dealt out here far exceeds and "crime" against the B'fest community.
