I know, this is the same sad song I've sung for years. I just wonder, who is in charge of making all these decisions? It can't be the nebulous people who you submit a form to for unblocking that is returned without any feedback or reasoning and who don't answer questions once they're e-mailed, can it?
I'm going to try wikispaces next. I've heard rumors it's unblocked. I wonder how that passes the muster but Nings don't?
