re: you haven't been paying attention to the level of intelligence of the general public.
It's not intelligence that means you can understand that, it's just familiarity.
Get over yourself.

Dll hell was caused by multiple apps on the same device requiring different versions of dependencies. As dlls were shared that couldn't be resolved.
Giving each app it's own versions of its dependencies is a way of avoiding dll hell.
I'm not saying this a good thing but it avoids that specific problem.
Hmm. In my case cc used a lot, bcc hardly ever used. Seems like the security focused don't like that convenience.
If you're sending out sensitive emails like this, why not automate the system rather than just using a dumb email client? Why use bcc at all when you can send multiple individual emails with a single valid cc? Why does the email you send to me need to come from an original mail that contains a list of all the recipients?
The solution isn't to change normal email clients, it's to use a mail merge!
The Google Play Store is a commercial venture. If they think something won't make them money they can remove it. Censorship is the wrong word to use for a marketplace, this is business pure and simple.
When they fuss your search results, that's censorship, when they ban an app from their store, that's their prerogative.
It's Google's market. They have complete discretion over what's in their store. If you based your business on them allowing you access you took a massive risk.
They have a Google free one, it's rubbish apparently, not enough Google: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/05/18/review_huawei_p40_pro/
This is pathetic. There's over a hundred and fifty comments on here, most of them badly thought out "polictical correctness gone mad" screeds heavy on "what if I think the allow list is things I'm allowed to deny" bullshit.
Allow list is a list of allowed things. That is clearer than calling it a white list.
Deny list is a list of denied things. That is clearer than calling it a black list.
Hmm, tying yourself in knots here jake. The allow list is the list of allowed things. The deny list is the list of denied things.
Confused? Only if you try really really hard to be.
YourDearOldMum can work it out, don't pretend it's tricky.
Explain to me again how comments get tested? I prove every line i write with tests. How do you alert your users when your comments go out of date?
Oh, you don't? You allow a description that doesn't match the functionality to live in the code? Now that really is bollocks perpetrated by lazy people.
Notice you didn't argue with this bit.
Because you can't. Comments don't have to be updated when code is. When things have to be done quickly because money is being lost then updating the comments doesn't help get the fix into production quickly. The comments will be left, no longer explaining what the code does and that will cost someone lots of time later.
Write your code so it's clear to other readers what it does. The only place comments should be needed is where the business rules are so counter-intuitive you need to spell them out. There the comments merely explain that yes, the code is doing the apparently stupid thing it looks like it's doing because "business".
Code needs to be readable. It's fuck all use otherwise.
I think you've spotted a defect in NoScript when it gets confused between pages, I've just gone to wikipeida.org with NoScript defaults and wikipedia.org is the only script source. I enabled it and refreshed and it's still the only one listed. Clicking through to the English site adds wikimedia.org.
Enabling scripts enables auto complete on the search box so looks like JS is being used exactly as it's supposed to be, to enhance a working page with some extra features designed to make it easier to use.
The internet is full of sites that doesn't function without JS, looks like Wikipedia are doing it right.
