Not consequences; I assume they don't understand AR etiquette yet and offer suggestions. How people take unsolicited advice in a forum where it's common (like AR), says a lot about their character.

My first thought is they do not know how to use all of the AR Features, and my guess is they would want and welcome comments.  I think giving them that bit of info in a PM would be very helpful, because they may wonder why there are no comments or feedback!  They may think they wrote a horrible Blog, when that is far from the truth Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041.  Excellent suggestion!!
