Distorted View is Gone

For many years now, I have been fighting the good fight against a podcast known as "Distorted View" hosted by a man who calls himself "Tim Henson." The podcast is juvenile, perverse and sexually explicit. I've heard fans say you need to "check your morals at the door" to listen to the podcast and I find that to be an accurate assessment.

For years I have tried to get the podcast off the air, but have failed. My major accomplishment has been to get the host to stop reading sexually explicit stories featuring the rape of underage children. The "Sextastic Tuesday" skit during which he read these stories went on hiatus for well over a year as a result of my intervention. When it returned he only read stories where all the participants were of the legal age of consent.

Now, the podcast's very web site is no more. loads not the perverse podcast but a search page. The iTunes entry for the podcast no longer updates. DistortedView is gone.

Open letter to Paypal about Regretsy

Paypal recently caved on efforts by the web site "regretsy" to force them to violate their terms of service to allow regretsy operate as a charity when it wasn't one. This is the letter I sent them after they posted their simpering apology to regretsy.

I'm disgusted that you caved on this issue. You let the bullies at Fark stop Paypal from taking a real stand on the commercialization of Christmas. The Regretsy "charity" was advocating the crass commercialization of Christmas, making the holiday about physical gifts and the mystical "Santa Claus" instead of the birth of Christ. By enabling this disgusting behavior you have helped dilute the meaning of Christmas.
I'm not surprised that a man with an Islamic name like Anuj Nayar is doing his best to help dilute the meaning of Christmas.
