Miss Jeanne, i still don't understand what made you so angry about the "Biting the Hand that Feeds You" post.
Probably she did not like her comments scrutinized and picked apart in a new thread when one could have posted on the blog itself and said the same thing.
That only works if she was going to post the comment. If not, she's effectively saying that she won't tolerate dissention. If she did post it, well, why would it matter if it were discussed in the forums?
As others have pointed out, there had been no action on that blog post in well over a month. Even if a new comment did get posted, how many people would read it and respond? If the OP wanted to discuss the topic at hand, the forum was the only option.
Is there actually a rule that says we can't discuss blog posts in the forum? If so, I haven't seen it.
