You could at least provide links to the viewable reviews. You didn't even provide a link to the main site:

That's a lot of articles to search for, especially when only 3 out of 14 are viewable.

"I'm glad you're here to tell us these things"

I'm sorry you don't appreciate the way I use the internet.  I found it quicker to use a search engine query then the unz.org search system.  So I provided that information.  Anyone can post links to exact articles if they so choose.  You and I share the trait that we couldn't be bothered.  Happy Life Day.

Throw some "we"s in there and I’d have mistaken you for negative1. I’ll be sure to check that out later.
