For many years I had been using Firefox and then switched to Google Chrome for my browser. It escaped my memory why I did so, but at the time I was not sorry that I did. A few years went by….

URGENT — A call to action for the WUWT community

URGENT —A call to action for the WUWT community –  This is an archived article. Posted on September 18, 2010 by Anthony Watts I need your help, they need your help. Please read this whole story and consider if you can help. WUWT readers may recall this story: Death of a Feedlot Operator In which the anal-retentive government of West Australia has ‘licensed’ a family farm out of operation due to some shonky science and arbitrary application of the ‘sniff test’.

Wanting a normal, stable, heterosexual relationship

Wanting a normal, stable, heterosexual relationship [Name not shown] wrote: Hey my name is [not shown] and I just wanted to thank you for your website. I only recently discovered it and I’m happy and proud there are people out there who are trying to redeem something from this crap we’re in as men. I’m only 19 years old but I already see how we’ve been sold a lie and everything normal and stable is being destroyed.
