Someone took over the entire forum for “General Notary Topics”. What is going on? Thanks, JoanNovember 17, 2012 at 2:47 am #14424
Yeah…I got tired of deleting them – the more I deleted them the faster they were recreated…

They all signed up mid-November and never posted until recently. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for bringing it to my attention. I have to keep you ladies happy. 😀 Have a merry Christmas!
