I'm not sure why comments are being eaten... I am surely not editing them!
I learned a LONG time ago to write in Word, save and then cut & paste here, so I encourage y'all to do the same thing. If something doesn't show up in a day or so, email me and I will go to where they sit and see if they might be hovering there - sometimes they do, but I've gotten better about looking for posts there, too.
If we continue to have publishing issues together, you can email it to me and I will try putting it up in the comments myself.
Sorry if some of y'all's comments are lost in the Ether-World! I'm certainly not editing them outta here.
