Respect must be earned.
It was not.

Hey look, Whataboutism comes in economy size too!
If you actually look you can see a difference. Democrats admitting they were wrong. The Republicans seem to have forgotten how to do that, in addition to being deathly allergic to the truth.
Are you actually willing to hold Republicans to the same standards?
I think you need to adjust your calibration 50 points to the left.
Multiple attempts were made from within and without our system of government to invalidate the actual votes of the voters in the states, to reject or change the outcome of those electoral processes.
It needs to be investigated, it is being investigated. That you think that it would not be investigated were positions reversed shows that you've fallen for the Republican propaganda hook, line, and sinker.
SecondLife is still going and doing fine.
And has graphics that make the current 'popular' metaverses that are just NFT tie-ins look like toys. Also tons of physics driven vehicles, weaponry, events... SL was doing concerts before Fortnite existed.
For the exchange of ideas. Not for conspiracy to sedition, to promote actions likely to result in injury or death to yourself or others, etc. You are free to say what you want. But you are not free to use someone else's platform to do it. If you break the house rules, don't act shocked to find yourself outside the door.
It's just hilarious how fast so called defenders of capitalism and business and free speech pitch a fit when they discover that breaching a business's rules gets them turfed out. The crying, the complaining. The wailing at the unfairness of it. "Conservatives are being censored much more often!" And they're probably breaching the ToS much more often, cause and effect.
What was that said about snowflakes, and feelings? Act civil. Show some actual respect. Bring some actual evidence. Discuss things on the merits as found by those that actually know what they're talking about, not Dr Oz or Franzie on Facebook.
Ok. How about this?
We'll have a decent conversation when you admit you're actually talking about what Russia's been doing in east Ukraine for almost a decade. And did in Crimea, etc, etc.
Ukraine's legitimate leadership asked for military and humanitarian assistance against hostile invasion by Russia, who happens to be committing a plethora of war crimes intentionally.
Stop the whataboutism.
How about not executing it? Can we all agree that executing stuff in a logfile is dumb and all this stuff that goes into log files should be saved literally and never parsed as code to execute?
Jimmy on a pogo stick, that's all the input sanitization you need. Just literal the write to log and move on.
Before you get too celebratory, consider the following:
1) Apple sells the repair kit. So they get all the profit.
2) If the consumer stuffs up their kit while repairing, it's likely not a warranty item as it was consumer caused damage. But Apple will be happy to sell them a new one, or such.
Well, there's vaccinated and there's not. And until we can scale the antibody testing sufficiently it's really that simple. Worse is the fact that not all develop the same degree of antibody response to the vaccine.
You're trying to make this some multiple option personal choice carousel.
It's public health. Get vaccinated.
"He seems a shifty guy. Rand Paul was taking him to task for comments over funding of the wuhan lab. But then even as an expert his opinion is ever shifting which apparently shakes peoples faith in him. Just as politicians get accused of (UK gov for one)."
Rand Paul has no clue what he's talking about. He's not a epidemiologist, not a virologist, not anything applicable. Fauci took the extraordinary step of stating he was speaking in official capacity, when he said Rand Paul did not know what he was talking about.
Scientists form, modify, discard, or confirm theories based on fresh information and experimentation.
Which didn't involve trying to stop a pandemic with an airborne pathogen that infects others in proximity. I'm reminded of a saying.
Something about one's right to swing their fist ending where another's nose begins...
Don't you just love it when people do things without knowing what they're doing because you tried as hard as you could to suppress the knowledge?
The notion that that this sort of antics is just educating the new generations that something horrible did in fact happen on that date is pretty golden.
I do not recall where it was and cannot find it, but I recall someone offering an actual cupholder you could install in a PC drive bay. I forget if it was motorized or just a pop-out, but it amused me immensely.
Edit: Found it.
Upsides / downsides, there.
I have used the Velop mesh both for my parents and for an even older couple that dad helps out as a thing to do with his retirement. For both there was a need to establish a wifi mesh chain to cover houses. With both installs, I have been able to check the networks and give them needed pokes, and determine when I was going to need to schedule time to go in person (an extended power-off evidently resulted in one node each forgetting how to talk to the network and so needed re-setup). So it has advantages in remote/distributed management point of view.
Very horses for courses, you might say.
I'm sorry, what part of, "I am willing to try DDG's tracker and ad blocking functionality while using my choice of search provider," did you not understand?
ScriptSafe and Adblock Plus manage to offer these things without being grabby about the search box. It was not a restriction that was advertised and made known previous to install. This sort of We Know Better Than You What You Want is the reason I will never buy an Apple product.
So take your condescending attitude and shove it up your ass.
So DuckDuckGo is making a big to-do about their privacy extension for Chrome. What they don't tell you is that when you use it it locks your browser search functionality to DuckDuckGo. You can't choose anything else, you have to disable the extension if you don't want DuckDuckGo hijacking your search bar.
Uninstalled and reported.
Overall, we rate Swiss Policy Research (SPR) a Moderate Conspiracy website based on the promotion of unproven claims. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of poor sources and complete lack of transparency. (M. Huitsing 5/21/2020) Updated (8/26/2020)
There's a big, big but there.
You cannot LIE about the reason for the termination. Google appears to have done that. And like was done with the other four that were fired, there is a non-trivial chance of Google getting annihilated during the Discovery phase.
What's that? Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane!
It's reality smacking you in the face!
I am unsure I understand your logic.
Phones have a limited amount of battery power available to them, and thus having 4 desktop applications running at full trot in the background, even if the processor can quite happily manage it, seems like a 'bad design decision' to me.
Have you seen the Chrome OS, lately? I hear it's a thing on laptop form-factor computers.
If I remember correctly, TrueCaller works by uploading the contact info (names, numbers, etc) on every phone that it's installed on, and using it to build a database of numbers and names. So if your name happens to pop up on someone's phone when you called it's because the app used that permission it was granted to rob your acquaintance's phonebook blind. Oh, and maybe having bought some phone lists too, but definitely the predatory uploading.
Couple things, here.
One, arbitrary and capricious is not an idly chosen term. It's a legal term that implies that there's no reasoned reason for an imposition, no rationale beyond whim.
Second, you need to remember that the tariffs are paid by US consumers, not by anyone in China. The supplier can say 'sorry, no' when asked to drop their costs, and with those tariff amounts it's going to be hard to not have that be the universal answer. And so things get more expensive for US consumers. Maybe the US company goes out of business as a result, and the suppliers in China shrug and continue on because there's always someone else that wants to buy what they make.
This is the cycle of stupidity that this administration is riding, with their fans declaring they are winning when the score has them the losers by far. So very sad.
