    • Hi Pete,

      First off, the newsletter only contains links to articles. Second, Terry’s article is not about politics. It is a mish-mash of fun sites to visit. The mentioned politically motivated site regarding Trump was meant to be humorous and not inflammatory. The site was clearly labeled so if you don’t want to see sites like that, then don’t click on their links.

      Sorry if this offended your sensibilities,
      Richard

      • so i guess if you put in a couple hundred leftist, radical political sites, then you could still claim you dont host them and all is ok in mudville once again.
        take some well-meant advice and stay away from politics and stick with helpful computer tips…as the name of your newsletter hints at.

        • clas, a sad reality that in 2019, we continue to live in a time where freedom of speech is still censored. I feel sorry for you, since you take things very seriously as if they were aimed directly at you and / or your beliefs (which in reality they are not). Here on DCT where “helpful computer tips” are found, life without humour is just existence, Mindblower!

        • Doesn’t the ‘Push Trump of a Cliff’ site merely host a game that people can play on their COMPUTERS!? To me, that’s all about computers, games, and a bit of fun. You guys really need to lighten up.

        • Are you serious Clas!? There is a world of difference between posting links to “a couple hundred leftist, radical political sites” and posting a single link to a computer game.

          It’s just a little game people can play on their COMPUTERS, and just a bit of fun. You guys really need to lighten up.

  1. I think this is a wonderful post designed to take the heavy from the daily work.
    Carry on Terry. You have my vote.
    Those with fragile skins should stay away.

  2. No political intentions intended by this post. Every now and then I come across lists of weird sites so I go to check a few out myself and write about them. The trump one I never even gave a second thought. Now, everybody calm down and go watch the grass grow. 🙂
