    Please stop calling them Ukrainian separatists

    While, forums like this seldom touch on politics I would ask your writers to stop falling for Moscow's line on what is going on in Ukraine. They are not Ukrainian separatist but Russian Terrorists. He is a very good example outlined by a friend of mine in Ottawa a number of months ago.

    “If I run 100km south to the Ontario-New York border with a bunch of guns, cross over, arm some local thugs and gangsters, start shooting and torturing people and then declare a tract of land to be an “independent” republic, what does that make me? At a minimum I’m a FOREIGN invader (even though the land I have invaded speaks the same language as me: English, or American, or Canadian, if you prefer). More than likely, Americans will label me a terrorist. No one will call me a “separatist” or a “pro-Canadian rebel”. That would be nonsense.”

    Technology is something I follow closely, almost as close as politics. I've always enjoyed the insight of many of your contributors. Keep up the great work.
