We asked, you answered. AOL Real Estate's post on the idea that banks should be forced to offer principal loan reductions on underwater mortgages brought an avalanche of comments, including some calling for a grassroots revolution.

Others were less extreme, but made the point that the U.S. government bailed out the banks more than a year ago and, as wrote BJW, "now it is their turn to help us out of a jam."
