If any other channel owners would like their channel to be left out, I'm fine with that. I don't really see the need of hunting down each channel owner just to ask for permission, sorry.
all im saying is, i would be upset if a bunch of strangers was triapsing through my living room on a sunday afternoon, all because someone stuck an OPEN HOME sign on my front lawn without my permission
