DEFYING GRAVITY: An Appeal to our International Readers

It just occured to me that the "World Wide Web" is called that because it's "World Wide" (Well, duh). Now, I'm not assuming that a website called "Republibot" is probably going to have much to attract people from a lot of different countries, most of which are far more liberal than the US, but we *Do* manage to get a fair ammount of international traffic.

For instance, in the last week, we've gotten 178 Canadian visitors to our site, 122 Brits, and 38 from Germany. Not boffo numbers by any means (We've had about 1780 visitors from within the US in that same period), but it's substantial. Canadians make up about 6% of our daily traffic, and while most of our visitors come from "The Anglosphere," we get visitors from elsewhere as well.

"Defying Gravity" has been cancelled here in the 'States, but - that damn song to the contrary - we are *not* the world, and a lot of you live in places where the show is still running.

If you live in Canada, the UK, or Germany, we would *love* to have you review the remaining episodes of "Defying Gravity!"

Why would you want to do this? Well: It's easy; it's not terribly time consuming; you'd be providing benevolent assistence to your poor American compatriots who love the show, but have had it wrongfully snatched from us by the blinkered philistine pig ignorance of our broadcast networks; and on top of that, it's kind of fun to know your words are being read and discussed by hundreds of people you don't know. My review for the episode "Love, Honor, and Obey" has been up for about thirteen hours now, and has been read by more than 150 people. It's a gas, I tell ya'! It's a great way to give yourself an ego boost and feel like you're really special (Even if you're like me, and not at all special)

So who wouldn't want that? If you're interested in doing it, please let us know, either by Email or in the contents here.

Now that I think about it, it really wouldn't be a bad idea for us to have a few foreign correspondents anyway. There've got to be shows and movies and various SF functions that take place in Germany, England, Australia, Canada, Japan, China, and other places that never get any notice in the 'States. It would be good for us to be able to cover some of that.

But for now, right at this moment, we'd love someone to cover "Defying Gravity" for us. Will you be that someone? Please? I promise it won't hurt. You know...much...
