  • Yahoo! Finance's "Post Removalist" (the CENSOR) acts quickly, once again 0 comments

    In my previous InstaBlog post I asked the following question:

    < Now let's all see how long my reference to this (suggested) advice lasts posted on the Yahoo (Mafia's) LOOK discussion board before being deleted, ok?
