Hey Project Noah tech support -- "KarenL" and "Seema" commented on this spotting: Their comments were delivered via e-mail (one of my preferences in "Settings") but don't appear with the spotting itself. Just a quick note to give you a heads-up that there is a bug causing some "Favorites" and "Comments" to disappear into the ether!
