Housebound advice from a long-term housebound person, boosts ok 

One of the anons who had been contributing to my book saw me dunking on landlords and got indignant because apparently they're a landlord. In typical landlord fashion they're now withholding the rights to their illustrations so that I can't publish.

The class struggle means ALL OF US.
