And aside from that, their consistent pushing of crypto-currency is what put me off of them

It received the praise and recognition as an anti-parasitic, it's also being used as an animal de-wormer. The yahoos who 'thought' it was the Covid cure, based on contrarianism and Facebook, were mostly chugging apple flavoured oral ointment formulated for livestock
Calling it horse de-wormer in this context is perfectly fine
Not forgetting that they're not currencies either.
Nothing in a normal life is priced in them and you can't buy things directly with them, only cash out of whatever tokens you hold to dirty fiat or have an exchange do that on your behalf.
As they flail around for a real world use it's currently settled on speculative trading based on the Greater Fool theory.
Currency is meant to be spent not hoarded
If you only have cups in a recipe it's easy, just replace them with "1 volume measure of choice", problems turn up though when you have compactable items like flour or brown sugar. Do you sieve the flour first to start at a known state? Do you get the spoon out to press it hard into the measure?
As for measuring butter in teaspoons, that's just stupid if you want accurate measures in any way.
At least metal keys only 'get worn or snap in the lock' (never seen that in 40 years myself) only affect one car at a time.
Even then you'll normally have two keys so you can use the spare to climb in through the passenger door until you can call a locksmith to extract the key.
The Christian Scientists have a document (https://www.christianscience.com/press-room/a-christian-science-perspective-on-vaccination-and-public-health) that gets quoted heavily until they get to the "We're faith healers and have pushed prayer as a solution" paragraph that's quickly followed by the "members are free to make their own decisions" statement.
I'd say it sucks but it's entirely the fault of the lawyers (or their minions) who mucked it up. That's the documentation they presented to the courts, it was their duty & professional responsibility to ensure that it was redacted properly.
As for the point of redaction, again not a lawyer but happy to be corrected, it's not about prejudice it's about controlling the information your opponent sees. They ask for all information concerning X,Y & Z, there's some pre-trial 'negotiating' about what is & isn't relevant and the court orders them to hand over the X & Z information. If they foolishly include Y in the information packet, that's on them. If their opponent doesn't ask for A & B (which is where the juicy stuff is) that's the opponents problem, they're not under any obligation to hand it over or even mention its existence
Luckily our tip has a ReUse shop. If your stuff isn't in too bad a condition you leave it in a flagged spot and they chuck a cheap price tag on it an chuck it in the store.
Also, thinking about it, they have a cargo container for PCs, Monitors & TV panels so they may get sent out for refurb or part picking
I think Free Geek is the best example of how to recycle PCs & components.
I've found the problem to be that a lot of the people who buy them do so because it's an obvious way to show-off rather than for the sound.
If you walk into the office with an expensive pair of Sennheiser\Sony\Bose headphones, most people don't care as they're not up on the product stack. They could be £90 or £9,000 but only like minded people will recognise them.
Slapping on a pair of these and people will instantly recognise them as an iProduct and, at the very least, know they're not a cheap product.
I've never installed it.
First time I would have brought something that did was near it's launch when it still had the "Oh, by the way, by clicking yes you've given us permission to rummage through your hard drive at will. KTHNXBYE" 'anti-cheat' functionality.
That combined with their rapacious acquisition and absorption of good companies (Bullfrog, Maxis, Westwood studios etc.) was the final straw, I've not purchased a new EA game since or any second hand one that requires Origin.
Now Tucker claims that the *only* COPY of the emails was lost on its way to him, perhaps deep state took it to hide the evidence, claims the Fox News liar.
Not forgetting the recent law suit that successfully defended him;
"The judge said that lawyers for Fox "persuasively" argued that "any reasonable viewer 'arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism' about the statements" Carlson makes, according to a court filing."
Doesn't matter, I'm the first line for friends, family and occasional co-workers and the number of times they ask a question then I type the exact same thing into Google and get the correct answer. "Oh. I never thought of that"
People don't want to know how to use computers, have no intention of learning and are enabled by their management. "I'm not good with computers!" is somehow a perfectly fine thing to admit to despite their job involving working on a computer all day because "That's what IT is for"
