From the editor

Greetings readers,

We are happy to announce that karipanas has reached "1000" visitors in the first two weeks of its creation. It may be 20 people who have nothing to do but click on the same page 100 times a day, but we still consider it an achievement.

Thank you to all who have come, and commented. We hope that you help us in spreading the word about this newsblog, or if you do not have adequate interpersonal skills, you can kidnap random people on the street to help do it for you. We advise that you release them after that, or at least ensure that they are washed and fed daily.

Some of you have posted links to this newsblog, and we highly appreciate the gesture. It shows that there are people who care about this country.

The second issue is that I want to formally announce our policy on comments.

You can say anything you want, as we believe in freedom of speech.
Quoting Voltaire "I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

It also means that we can say anything we want in response. Racist, prejudiced and downright ignorant comments will not be deleted. We will just tell you that you are a scumbag bastard and that you can rot in hell, or something to that effect.

Happy reading.
