  1. If the UK had similar laws about “insulting state officials”, then PMQs would very quickly turn into an extended period during which bank details are exchanged.

    1. Their wouldn’t be enough jails in the land, the courts would be too busy to deal with actual criminal activity and the country would implode.

      These laws are only enforced in countries like Russia when there is a political “enemy” to be gotten rid of or the state feels threatened. Pathetic really if they’re so fragile and delicate.

    2. People, please sign the following petition to the Olympic Committee re. taking a stand against Russian homophobia.

      The number of signatures is just short of 300,000. Your signature is needed. Please sign.

  2. For the love of all that is holy get rid of that stupid sliding message.

    If you think people can’t navigate your website without help, then it’s a sad indictment of your site and/or content in the first place.

    1. I agree with you 100%. Many times I do not open an article here only to avoid having to close ads I’m not interested in or having to carefully move my mouse to avoid getting some freakish sound from another ad. Why read it here when I can go elsewhere and read the same thing without the annoying inconveniences with Pink News.

        They usually just crash my browser.

        Advertising only works when you don’t p!ss off the intended target.

  3. Ksenia Sobchak is one of a few well-known people in Russia who are against anti-gay laws and discrimination of LGBT people

  4. The Russian government worries about online “insults” to government officials while turning a blind eye to online celebrations of torture of young gays. Their priorities speak for themselves.
