The only thing is maybe leave the main page with a message about a min of silence so people don't think there is a problem-conspericy site and all...

A great number of people don't celebrate Christmas, given this is a global community, we're not likely to accomodate such a "silence" event.
Feel free to express your sentiment in our member holiday thread, however.

it's double standards...being silent for the troops cause we care so much, but we won't even bother to think about whats going on in africa cause it doesnt effect us.

For my Christmas present, I would like all politicians and greedy financiers dumped on a nice windswept island - then maybe the rest of us could live decent lives - whether we are in the USA, the UK, Africa or anywhere else.
