Here's to the yearly spike in domestic violence, which is made worse by covid!

I know 2020 sucks but do you think this is really the place to post something like that?

We should try to remain positive and hope for a better future.

Merry Christmas everybody.

Merry Christmas! I'm very happy that TechPowerup has kept politics off of the editorial and review page, it is one of the few tech websites left (Engadget, Kotaku, TheVerge, those are not tech websites, just Anandtech is left also). It has been a nice refuge. Cheers :)

What countries are voting right now, out of curiousity?

Agree all the same, but just in case, remember to keep these sort of comments politically neutral. Voting is good, we can all agree. :)
