AG...some people get them thar two words mixed up: "AUTISTIC" "ARTISTIC" But for the sake of argument, when you think "tagger's", think "Rainman" with a paint can, as in an autistic artist----which mostly then equates to an entertaining moron, who can probably do some pretty spiffy tricks with match sticks, but other'n that is still an imbecile...
