That's the best time to write.

I've published those two posts for you. If you want I can eliminate you and then invite you back. That might fix the problem.

Jonathan said...

I've kicked you out and sent a second invitation. If you accept that you should be able to publish. Again. After accepting Nazca I'm still looking for two more.
