I don't know what you are using, but when I use lynx I see the following:

   More items...

   Feedback | Store | News | Support | Product Errata | About Us | Linux
                         Info | Search | JumpWords

and have no problems following the links to the information.

I'm not sure what to do to improve your reading skills, but wget and
websuck aren't going to help.

Specially since none of us have any problem with the page.

As with several other terms, you seem not to understand the concept of
courtesy, although you have a firm grasp of ranking.

As you are a newbee you are allowed an ignorant rant as an introduction to
the group. You have had more than your share. Instead of spending so much
effort flinging your ego about the lists, the rest of us would appreciate
it more if you would spend some time reading and possibly studying the
Debian documents that state our objectives and goals, as well as the
technical details of how we expect to get there. When you understand where
we are, your comments will have much greater value to the group. At the
moment you are wasting everyones time.
