Request for a favour: Please inform organisations and individuals of our existence and the fact that we tend to link to people who link to us. I wonder how many of the people on Zyra's Mad Links page would like to hear of us and put in a LINK!
Links last checked 2012/04/02 in Panama, at night. If you find any broken links please put a mention in about them. But if you find any links hijacked by cybersquatters, please put in an URGENT request as we must to stamp out the evil problem. (The problem of cybersquatted links is helpfully explained at Zyra's page about this. www.zyra.org.uk/badlink.htm). Also, we won't put up with any Facebook nonsense either, because Facebook is (in my opinion as a paranoid schizophrenic), an evil conspiracy working to gather information for governments, and is out to enslave us individuals, and it's also against the freedom of the Internet, and guilty of appalling betrayals of personal privacy! Avoid it! Down with Facebook!
Here's an advertisement helping to keep this site on the go now that Rethink have stopped funding us. We are still keeping on going. See our new funding model. See, the ads aren't too intrusive, are they?
