WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Although our site remains very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our ad revenues and, as if that wasn't enough, it has become the target of hackers who don't like what we do and are determined to destroy it. To protect our reviews we moved to a much more secure, and expensive, server and we need your help more than ever. If you think what we do is worthwhile and helpful to you, please consider donating or becoming a member and make sure we continue to publish -- as an extra benefit, members have access to our premium website, which is totally free of ads.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
