Can not remove the sub intro text under the featured block

For some reason I can not remove the text at all.
It is the text under the featured block.
(Your Network sub intro post text you can insert post text for the sub intro on homepage)
if I remove it and hit save it comes right back. If I change it and then delete what I changed it inputs the default text again.

While not related is there no way to make the links in the featured slider clickable?? that is really uncool if it isn';t possible as I was getting exited about this theme

And lastly, are you all testing us with the no cursor in your post box?? Hard to know where the heck you are typing at until something pops up.
