      Yeah chrissy, CNN blog detractors have gone wayyyy overboard on deleating postings. Look at the top of each blog and see who wrote the artical. If those persons have anything to do with it call cnn and complain. I know I can go to Hst NE and N Capital sts go to CNN and see some of these people personal and complain there. Oh thats in DC.

    Don't give up just yet my friend. I too am in the same boat but would continue trying to be heard. We surely are missing @banasy. Hope she is fine.
