    Wow. Now that's not what I'd call constructive criticism. Harping on "teh hug!" and ignoring the fact that Russia (and other figure skating powerhouses) voted to abolish anonymous judging doesn't add to the article's credibility. I guess he's giving a badly written article for a sport that deserves no better?

    The word kowtow apparently translates well to Korean.
    That's pretty offensive to Korea... and perhaps Asia in general.

    The two leading skating 'journalists' in this country are just lunatics with a seething hate of Russia.

    I can't read it. It says that you have to be a digital member. I did try to enter through twitter but it still request a zip code which I don't have.

    I did manage through FB somehow. I'm sorry that I did bother at all for such a poor article, a snoozefest really.

    What does that word mean?
