Hi Tammy, It is NOT FUNNY AT ALL to see that YOU removed my opinion in that Curation! That is felt as Censorship for me, sorry and I don't like Censorship at ALL!!! I suggest to YOU to delete that post and to curate it from original address or YOU keep it and YOU bring in again my opinion in the text! That is Curation, not only copy&paste! Curation is made for leaving the opinion of a curator, otherwise it would be aggregation, OK ;) Have a great day :)
