I've been lurking for a few weeks now and enjoy the posts. I also think many, many people are using this blog as reference material. On AOL's homepage, there is an article titled "The Taping of a Shrew". Interesting read...

Keep up the good work! They might just get cancelled!

Congratulations Serena and gang! I have enjoyed reading this blog.

On an interesting note, when I signed on to AOL this morning, one of the feature stories was on Jon and Kate entitled, "Taping of the Shrew". It links to a story on parentdish.com and although the author of the article was rather critical, I found it interesting that the comments (over 1000 of them) were mostly pro-Kate. Here's the link:

Again, congratulations on your accomplishment!

This site is a blessing. I've learned a lot from reading here and I am in total support of getting this show off the air because of the exploitation of the children. I'd never heard of a minor consideration before but I shall now be sending an email of my own since the constant inappropriate filming of the minor children has been my major distress over the series. Granted, the behavior between Jon and Kate is disturbing too but since they have made their bed I will let them sleep in it.
I don't think it's awful for a family to do a one time or once a year type of show if it's done respectfully but this day in and day out filming is dead wrong. Those DVDs they are selling will haunt those children for the remainder of their lives. I'd love to see it be yanked and those children get the privacy they deserve. It's a little late for a lot of issues but I only see things getting worse not better if they don't get those cameras off them ASAP.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication to this site. If only the Gosselin parents knew the value of hard work and dedication to being good parents, family members and members of their community. It's such a sad muddle they have made of their reputations.

Since you have had a quarter of a million hits why don't you include some information about missing children on this site? I think it would be a great thing to do and so helpful not to mention easy. It would also tell those pro-Kate fans that this blog is an important place to visit as well.

Thanks for the excellent idea! We will implement that within the next day or two.
