    I didn't make the forum rules, MandyGwen.  HubPages created them, and did an excellent job.  You are not allowed to post links to your hubs on ANY forum unless it's in "Extreme Hub Makeover" or in the appropriate thread for the HubChallenge.  As you may have noticed, your link was snipped by the HubPages team, so obviously they agree you broke the forum rules.  I never said anything about you copying your information from anywhere.  I do agree fire safety is very important, by the way.  But, you needed to know you broke the forum rules.

    Finally, I would appreciate it if you would refrain from leaving rude messages on my Hubs.

      Did you delete them, or was this just a ruse to get me to read your hubs looking for the rude comments...

      BTW MANDY, THE FORUM COMMENTS WERE KINDA RUDE TOO EVEN IF YOU WERE TRYING TO SAVE MY LIFES! READ DA RULES!

          I wasnt trying to be rude  at all i am a very nice person. I just joined here and i really didnt no what that meant about the links i thought it meant not to post liks to other websites, i was simply just trying to post the quiz and then have a way for the reader to go to the answers on another page. if i sounded rude im sorry. but i do think that people who have been here longer and are familiar with the system should let us new members no when we are in the wrong but there is a way about doing that without being ugly and smart.

            This was hardly ugly and smart... You were lucky it wasn't someone with less tact who pointed that out.
