    Getting kind of discouraged because I just discovered your site and I went through 7 pages of contest sites and the majority of them have expired. It would be nice if someone could remove the contests once they have reached the last day of entry. Trying to find one that was still accepting entries proved rather exasperating. (Just sayin'.)
