    There are some people out there who really, really hate what we do here at LowIncomeRelief.com. We've received some very hateful comments from people recently, so we are moderating EVERY comment that appears on our page before it is published publicly.

    Usually, your comment will appear within about 24 hours but sometimes it can take a little longer. Submitting the same comment (or a similar one) over and over again will not speed up this process.

For your safety, we also delete personal contact information (phone numbers, etc) from the publicly viewable portion of your comment. Our administrators will still be able to see the email address you submit with the form, though.
