I have been reading your blog post for a considerable period of time,and I make it aa point to read most of the post on the linkfest,but since last couple of months,I have been noticing a peculiar trend in the amplification style of your linkfest…it is mostly about supporting a particular thought process,earlier most of your linkfest were unbaised,but now like TV newschannels it is hanging onto one side,well there is nothing wrong in having a view point,but then when you are doing such good work,it becomes your moral responsibility also to be as neutral as you can be.Look at today’s linkfest,most of them seem to be pro Russia,like the current maximum support from our country it is getting generated,but we are not talking about the excesses of Russia,the corrupt practises of Russia,the silencing of the opposition in Russia,the stifling of democratic voices in Russia.

These are some of the thoughts,you might not agree with them,and you have the right to the same,but I thought I should put up my thoughts here.
Thanks,keep up the good work
