  1. I took the survey and added some constructive criticism about the site. One criticism I will note here is that the front page overwhelms the vistor with a barrage of links, assaulting him or her with an abundance of information.

    1. I think the front page is perfect….All the info and links are there in an easy to read font type and size.

      1. There is absolutely nothing wrong with an abundance of information. The problem is in how that information is presented to the visitor. For example, there is nothing wrong with water, but it would be an uncomfortable experience to be sprayed by a fire hose.

        Another criticism I noted was how the blog is infrequently updated.

  2. I disagree. I hope they don’t change the front page. I also like being able to go back to the previous days front pages.

  3. I agree, the front page is well organized into subject areas and easy to navigate. I rather think it’s useful information presented logically, if I objected to too much information, I’d click over to Fox news!

  4. Well – I can’t donate to this site, since I’m VERY opposed to foreign intervention in internal affairs, but, I love it. This site is something that gives me hope that ideals of freedom and Govt. being for the people do have some chance.

    1. Vassili,
      What sort of “foreign intervention” would you be committing by donating to this site? The themes in this site are applicable to the entire world.

      In Europe we have very similar problems to the US (EU, Sarkozy etc). I donate as I have not been able to find a European site of this high quality.

  5. The best thing about the site is that it is an excellent source of legit news. Please expand on that and try to make it more mainstream in image to the public. We need to entice some of our less informed and stubbornly ignorant fellow citizens to educate themselves about reality rather than let the racists and nutjobs and Fox and CNN pollute their brains with lies and propoganda. Perhaps Antiwar could use a video outlet. i would certainly contribute to make that happen in some capacity

  6. I just had to reinstall Windows, so I don’t want to tangle with the javascript on that survey right now.

    What I like best is when the automated news bots that compile AntiWar.com’s front page post something exactly a year old, thinking it’s today’s news. That has happened I think twice in the last year, that I have caught, and I always send Eric an email about them.

  7. Yes, Eric, here’s a suggestion. Please quit showcasing Glenn Greenwald here. Other than the most conventional, Obama supporting, DailyKos type pap, he hasn’t had anything to bring to Antiwar.com that one couldn’t easily extract from about seventeen authentically anti-system writers that appear here regularly but with less obvious personal ambition.

  8. Just read Glenn Greenwald’s excellent column ( The Real Moral Offense )…So, on the contrary, by all means keep showcasing such excellent work..

  9. Just read Glenn Greenwald’s adultery apologetic (The Real Moral Offense)… So, yes, please, by all means, can hacknied, leftish, ca-ca like this and replace it with articles by writers capable of criticising torture without at the same time shoving their tawdry amorality down our throats.

  10. I think that salon.com is somehow an unhealthy environment, and perhaps given that atmosphere he over-compensates with a certain air of personal puritanism in the way he presides over his own bit of it – look at that picture of him. Those eyes, they follow you around the room.

    1. Rowan Berkeley,

      “I think that salon.com is somehow an unhealthy environment, and perhaps given that atmosphere he over-compensates with a certain air of personal puritanism in the way he presides over his own bit of it …”

      Yes, always a bit oppressive to read Greenwald when he’s dressed up as a kind of Bizarro World Jonathan Edwards. You’d almost suspect that he was pointing to something extrinsic that grounded his sermonizing.

      “… look at that picture of him. Those eyes, they follow you around the room.”

      Maybe he’s looking for Brad Smith who doesn’t read his writing when he doesn’t like it. :-)

      1. John Lowell. Did I say I don’t read his stuff? Or did I say that people should decide for themselves who to read?

        Eric Garris, Pleas keep up the great work and thanks for the chance for us to give you our opinions. I’m sure any changes you make will be for the good.

        Peace!

        1. Brad Smith,

          Given the principle you annunciated – “As for Glen Greenwald, If you don’t like his writting don’t read it!” – and assuming that you take the principle seriously enough to apply it to yourself, one couldn’t feel comfortable reaching the conclusion that you’d not read Greenwald’s writing when you didn’t like it? :-)

        2. John Lowell, don’t assume, you know what that does. I happen to like Glen Greenwald, so I will continue reading him. You obviously don’t like Glen Greenwald, so why waste your time reading something you know you will only put down? Actually I don’t know why I ask questions when I have a good idea of the answer. You seem to take great enjoyment out of putting people down. Whether it’s my English or Glen’s writing, or just about anyone’s politics or thoughts. You might want to take a hard look at yourself to see why you feel the need to behave this way.

          Peace!

        3. Brad Smith,

          You excuse me, of course, if I broach the thought, as for John Lowell, if you don’t like his writing don’t read it. :-)

  11. I hope they don’t change the front page. This is for purely selfish reasons, I don’t want to spend time trying to figure it out all over again. I would however like to comment on more of the articles and I noted that in the survey.

    As for Glen Greenwald, If you don’t like his writting don’t read it!

    Peace!

  12. I think it would be a great idea if we, the visitors, could get some feedback from the editors and webmasters over the survey data.
