I too noticed that we no longer seem to be able to post fan mail. Someone asked about it in a forum a week or so back and I thought it must have been a glitch.

I personally don't think it should have been removed as it is just depersonalising the site even more.

I do a fair amount of suggesting editorial changes to hubbers when I feel these may be helpful. I despise the challenge prompts testing whether or not I'm a person. First of all, my vision isn't exactly eagle acute....
Naturally, receiving any fan mail is great. I tend to take things literally though so before posting, the question to tell the world what I think of that author stares me in the face and I write a mini recommendation.On...
