Maybe if you didn't ignore the advice being given to you by reporters, teachers, and coaches we wouldn't be having this problem. I think most of us are simply looking out for the best interest of the blog with our suggestions for how you go about contacting children. If you don't want to have this conversation here, that is fine. You can get my email from my registration information. I'm more than happy to share my concerns and suggestions in a private manner.
I appreciate what you are doing working here. I just think there is room for improvement.
