it is a commercial site, nominated in a commercial category of a commercial

-who was this 'progressive' guy who offered a category 'activism' this year for

-why activists are silent about it?
-and what is activism?
-just an art compain based on a political  subject?
-may be to extend next time the art category to 10 nominants or commercial to
-why toywars compain is not nominated?
