  8. Do you accept diwali links from everyone or is it only for blog hop blogs..I had added 2 links and they were removed without any comments. .I linked it from while in office. .so did not get a chance to link back to this..but I expected some communication if its not allowed. .bit disappointing for a regular reader 🙁
