Re: Why was my reply deleted in a thread?

Nothing "technically" wrong there, but maybe someone who's a little but who had bought a GoogleZazz product in the past comes along this thread, sees that it has a couple dozen replies, and gets excited b/c she likes her GoogleZazz product and wants to see how other people are liking theirs, and share her experiences w/ them too. Instead, she finds just one rave-y post and then a bunch of talk about the GoogleZazz store and she gets sad and annoyed at all the "almost" spam.

Does that make any sense at all or was it just kind of rambly?
so if im understanding this, and it is quite possible im not, but it *sounds* like a WAHM could be accused of spam depending on what questions other members ask in a thread not even started by the WAHM?
