Greetings Lenny.

WONDERFUL question.  I remember not being scarfed. (not that long ago)  To 
me, it was a time of fun and learning. (I didn't want to be an example.)  I 
didn't even know what a red scarf meant.   Later, I thought it meant "I have 
a force field, you can't hit me":)
Then came the thought it means "someone sees something in you"  I was asked 
as a complete shock to accept one.  I didnt know I was being watched.

Now over 2 years later...I dont treat scarfed or unscarfed any different.  
If a question is asked, I answer.  If I don't know the answer, I'll stear 
them in the right direction.  It shouldn't make any difference if 
scarfed/belted or not.  As in Braveheart is said "men don't follow titles, 
they follow leaders"(or something like that) :)

I will do what I can for those who ask (physical restriction do apply)
Or if seen they need help.
It doesn't matter who they are......they need help.
(opinion)Remember that.

Once again rambling on
