  1. Seem this site is just another fake news mill.

  2. To claim that information on this page is fake without actually considering the reference articles that are given to support the judgements means you are giving us your biases not your analysis. If you can’t take the time to read the supporting data then don’t waste our time with your opinions.

  3. No surprise you’re ‘Anonymous’

  4. Those of us with still functioning brains after 4+ years of lies, really appreciate the work your doing.
