Comment: Your information on coyright is NOT correct. YOU have no right to
copy sources of many information , because it does not belong to you.So
,in essence you do what you prohibit others to do.Researching a subject
does not give you ANY rights to copyright it,because you are not an
initial author of an information that is already copyrighted by an
author.You should contact a patent and copyright lawyer who can explain it
better to you.I have done technical writing for years and know that law
pretty good.I am not a great fan of your site, because a lot of technical
information on it is incorrect (you use web sites as references) and
greatly missunderstood.I am not sure that it is a great service to a
society.I understand that you are limited on funds , but be sure to verify
your sources, before you write some incorrect information.I loved your
site when you just did urban legends and I think that you should stick to
it.I have worked as engineer for 40 years and trust me, there is a lot of
technical "urban legends" created by you on this side.

And perhaps, Dear Reader, you should contact someone who can explain the difference between the concepts of "information" and "presentation" to you.

In your years of technical writing, have you ever learned basic English grammar?

ETA: Chloe's sarcastic comment was better then mine.

Comment: You need to know that true Christianity would NEVER call a
Holiday after a pagan sex debautched goddess of Roman antiquity. Easter is
the way Pagan Romanism asserting itself as the Holy Roman Catholic
Church/Constatine included thus representing God-by the way God of the
Jews/Israel for they worshipped the God of the OT Who was the God of the
Jews. EASTER IS FOUND ONLY IN ONE PURGATED PRINTING OF THE KJ BIBLE-ONLY
ONE. EASTER IS THE ANGLO/SAXON DERIVITAVE OF ASTHEROTH Her followers
practiced sex with men with men, women with women, men and women with
animals etc. To attach that pagan goddesses name with Paschal-Passover is
to debouch the holiday and is an affront to all Israelies. The so called
Christians of the era which changed this was to disassociate themselve
from any thing Jewish in the worship of-the God of the Jews? DUH!They
worship the God of the Bible-the God of the Jews-HELLOOOO! But they
associate the name of a debautched goddess with the name of God-that is an
affront to all Christians, who also by the way-worship the God of the
Bible-the God of the Jews. I take it as an affront to my God to be wished
Happy Easter-or Happy debautched sex goddess day-blasphemy period!

Now there would be a real market for cards that wish people a "Happy debautched sex goddess day-blasphemy period" but what sort of chocolate treat would go with this?

Why, Devil's Food Cake, of course!

Comment: Why does Obama have dual citizenship U.S. and Kenya? does he
favor the US or Kenya? If he favors US why hasn't he said that in his mind
he's not a Kenya citizen but a U.S citizen. Also if it takes a US citizen
to become President how can he be a Kenya citizen too? Also his father was
not a US citizen and I believe that the rules for being able to run for
President is that both your parents has to be US citizens!Everyone has
made a big deal about McCain why hasn't this come out to the public. Is it
because everyone in the media wants Obama to win? I have a BIG problem
with this information!!!! Jean

Comment: I would like to take this opportunity to voice my feelings
concerning Mr. John McCain as our Presidential Canidate for
the Republican Party. When this whole campaign began I was
unclear as to where he stood. It was in the back of my mind
that he had left the Republican Party and was in cahoots with the
Democrates. I am so very pleased to see that this is not so.
I would love to see Mr. McCain become our next President,
provided he holds steadfast and true to his proclamations.
We NEED a strong, patriotic man to lead this Nation. A man
who can control his temper and seek that which is in the
best interest of our Nation...not the whims of the big
spenders and liberals. I respect Mr. McCain as a former
Prisoner of War and a fellow patriot. Many of my friends did not return
from Viet Nam. They gave all they had for
America and they stood true to the Faith. Those who protested against them
and the service they were rendering
made me sick. These are some of the enemy who now serve in
our Congress! I can tell you that if you will take a step
back to listen and observe you will see that both Obama &
Clinton have hidden agenda's that are geared to bring our
country to her knees. WAKE UP AMERICA,STAND UP AMERICA!
I think Mr. McCain shows a quiet dignity and desire to lead
us forward against our enemies from within as well as from
without! Clinton & Obama have thumbed their nose at their
own party and seek for their own recognition in their own
way....both CAN BE BOUGHT. McCain is not a sell out!
He is from the fires of adversity and affliction. He knows
under whose guidance his help will come.
As for Mrs Obama, this is America, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!
As for the Clintons...haven't you done enough to our Nation? GET OUT...you
are not wanted either.
Mr McCain, God speed1

Comment: Fox news is a joke and is run by Zioncons who only care about
protecting Israel and their illegal occupation.
They mislead, lie, amd don't care about AMERICAN SOILDERS
BEING KILLED AND WOUNDED FOR NOTHING. Ifyou care about Israel,then stop
the U.S. from providing money and Arms.
Get RID OF SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS,ESPECIALLY AIPAC!!!

Comment: The Evan Trembley mess is just horrible. I think he should be
fined and taught that it is not something to joke around about. Most
missing persons are found dead the percentage of survivors are very low.
There is nothing funny about his "Joke". I was very lucky to survive and
am very angered by this .

Comment: The Arizona Tea flavor Southern Sweet tea internet rumor was new
to me; I read it for the first time on your sight-
the racist is the person whom initiated the email-
there is no slave despicted on the label-
the civil war ended in 1865-
plantations as the one allededgly despicted like on the tea label were far
and few!
These bigots need to get over it-
besides, I'm a 50 year old southern female that had 4 great great poor
farmer grandfathers that wore the confederate uniform and never owned one
slave between them-and I am one whom hates tea in any form! Whoops, does
that make me a bigot against orientals?
hmmmmmm
