I dropped off the forum last month after a series of frustrating attempted posts following the children's massacre in Connecticut. I apologize for the emotional response. I had other family issues at the time as well. I guess every now and then I need a hiatus.
cerv- Did you include a link in your disappearing posts? The messages that I tried to post included links to a story in China. I now suspect that the anti-spam improvements in the forum include a rudimentary filter like the one that won' allow stories about Essex because it includes "sex".
