Oh definitely! That's why I said credit where credit is due. I might not like the site much but I'm not stupid enough to turn down free publicity and I'll thank anyone who's kind enough to give it.

We should avoid getting into the political arena. Its enough with all the diversity in Trek opinions to open another can of worms would be hazardous L0L.

lol Quite true- that's why I went out of my way not to mention the "p" word. So I'll just say that I'm glad for the publicity, no matter what! And a big thanks to Drudge Report for placing Trek on the front page.

Drudge isn't a political website. It's a website that carries links to news stories.

There are a significant number of stories on there now about things happening all over the world that have nothing to do with politics. That's what DR is like every day.

I love Drudge man, but it is perceived by some to be slanted a certain way. Even though I personally don't agree that it is, was all I was saying. Drudges site and some of the news that makes it there doesn't always make it into the general media stream. The site is not the issue its the potential debates that can ensue and I have been in some doozies.

Yeah, I probably shouldn't have said what I said about Drudge. The last thing I want to do is start an argument or something over a topic that's completely irrelevant to Star Trek. So, my apologies for bringing it up.
