After some internal discussion, I've decided to move the post back (minus the snide followup). It closely straddles a line between a software announcement and a topic post, and arguments could be made either way.
You seemed to take umbrage with the fact that the post was moved to a forum that everyone else (myself included) uses to make such helpful contributions. I don't understand the outrage. Remember that the forum name "Blatant Advertising" is a good natured injection of humor along the lines of "Meaningless Drivel", not some empyrean slap in the face.
Well, of course I was upset. I put a bit of code up that I thought would be of use to coders out there, and it ends up in what I consider to bethe equivalent of a spam folder (people selling things, anyhow). I did feel that to be a slap in the face. I took pride in that work I did, and a chained selector is a common AJAX problem that others might want to implement.

As had been pointed out, your view of the BA forum was inaccurate. Spam is deleted out of hand. BA is a place not only for advertising java-related goods for sale, but for making free software and tools available. My own FrontMan (see sig) is an example. There was (and is) no reason to feel slighted. Your post was moved to the forum appropriate for sharing software.
The fact that your post asked for suggestions for improvement also made it sort of a question, and so it has been placed back into the original forum for that sort of discussion.
Your willingness to share your code and want to help others is laudable and very very welcome here on the Ranch. Just try not to be so thin-skinned before finding out what the norms of the forums are. [ January 04, 2008: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
