  2. I am curious how you enforce the "leader must CC another leader" because that's almost impossible to enforce.

  6. I posted a legit post about needing beta testers for a new free service I'm offering. I made special effort to not post any links so that any conversation would be PM only. Apparently my post was moved to some private forum because it was considered soliciting perhaps? I'm not really sure. Anyway, I see that various people have responded and I would like to see the replies? Could you notify me via PM or some other means why the post was taken down, and could you send me the replies?
