Do you have any idea what happens to a forum when people start posting come-ons for their favorite charity? Why should your under-privileged kids be more important than mine?

It's hard to see the difference between the link to your "blog" and a link to any other ad site.

Thanks for the help.

I wasn't sure, so I put it in where I thought would not cause problem.
