Yep it's true Diabolic gets respect in my books because of that exact reason. He doesn't need to be spoonfed and respectfully reads, learns and doesn't talk smack.
PS: Thanh, you can setup an AV date with a verifier so that it falls on your birthday and the info is exchanged then and there. Basically as I understand it you have to be 18 at the time the info is submitted. If you AV rep is on top of things you could potentially go a week before your birthday and they'll take your info down and then make a note to submit a week later when you turn 18. For me I actually ended up getting AV'ed shortly after my 18th birthday because of conflicting schedules with the AV rep, but I did try and schedule it as close as possible though.
