Fact is, we removed those features due to the new laws and regulations about posting information from foreign websites and archiving data from foreigners themselves............. yeah, it really comes down to our ability to shave off the problems associated with an open blog forum. Know this, rules and regulations are changing so fast we, as a corporation, must now remove all foreign information from users. Isn't that bizarre. In fact, we now have to run through new hoops with PCI and with LEGAL, in that we must have full insurance coverage for information posted throughout out site. (it boils down to money). In other words, we have to be responsible and liable for all information that crosses our network. It's a rough go...... but we have what we need. In a few weeks we may bring back those features that make for a robust blogging forum. Folks, it's no longer cheap to be in this industry! Not at all! If you are large enough, and visible enough, you'll need to make sure all your bases are covered. It's the new world.
