RE: Sites reputation obviously trashed

I suppose it's all relative. No reasonable person here would find that sites dedicated to serving the KKK or WBC are safe for children. Thus the reason that type of rating exists. They may not infect your computer but they can infect your mind.

RE: Help And Stategy For Space Cadet Pinball-Windows XP (Without

Kind of a left field topic for WOT forums...but wanting to play pinball is no reason to stay with Win XP IMHO
