I've got news for you. If the US government goes to a US company with a warrant, they too will hand over all your data. And if it goes through the FISA court, then it would be illegal for the company to tell you they did so, and they wouldn't be able to challenge it.

There's so much dumb here I don't know where to start, but I'll try.

Since Forza is banning flags now. Lets start by banning ever flag in Africa and the entire Middle East
You do realize that American's don't have much say in the policies of foreign countries, right? Like this would be impossible to actually do. You get that right?

Everyone of these countries allow and support Slavery and Indentured Servitude TODAY. How about concentrating on countries which are actively allowing the presence and acceptable practice of Slavery!
You know it's possible to actually do more than one thing at a time, right? People can both affect change in their local government while at the same time not supporting the policies of foreign goverments. These aren't mutually exclusive objective or thoughts. Do you understand that?

Watch the lefty authoritarians dance past, side step and backflip by this one with all the grace of an Olympic Gymnast.
That's quite the giant straw man you've created there. Who helped you build that? Now let's watch as the vast majority of lefties say that they are not okay with slavery and indentured servitude anywhere by any government. I'll start. I'm not okay with slavery or indentured servitude by any government. Graceful enough for you?

They were built by slaves ya know.
Actually, they weren't, but thanks for proving my point about the level of knowledge on display here.

Look, if he needs to use more words, then he will.
But he did and he didn't.

Did he really need to add in the words "force of the law" ? Apparently so.
You just contradicted the previous quote.

You guys are hopeless.
You think that it's hopeless that people think that the President of the USA - the most powerful man in the world, who commands the entire US military - should be careful about what wording he uses when talking about going after US citizens? I reject that idea entirely. He has more responsibility than literally anyone in the country to say precisely what he means and not leave room for misintepratation. He deserves every critisim leveled at him for not doing so.

But that's how it's read. They are unwritten words because they're obvious

No, they're not obvious. The obvious reading is what is written, which is that they will be met with actual force. I find it hard to believe that you have completely missed the multitude of videos of police violence against protestors in the past few weeks. The obvious reading is the president is offerring more of what's been happening around the country.

and would otherwise take up space on a maximum limit of message length of the tweet.
What a laughable excuse. Do you actually believe this nonsense? Not only is the twitter limit far larger than this tweet, but the president has shown many, many times that he will tweet sucessive messages to get his message out.

It was an "if-else" tweet that said criminals will be met with the force of the law

You have deceptively added "of the law". The tweet just says "met with serious force!". I'm sure you know this, which means you are intentionally using false information. Why would you do such a thing? Do you really think the membership here is dumb enough to fall for that?

So you think you should have to volunteer to assist the police if you expect them to help you? How fascist of you. Hopefully most other Americans will continue to believe we shouldn't be modeling our policing policies on the Gestapo.

I'll reserve judgement until I see the gameplay, but it sure sounds like they took a less popular part of SW Battlefront and scaled it down even more.

You're overblowing it. This isn't a major change and it won't make anything worse. "Replica" works just fine. In many cases it's a more accurate descriptor as well. We've also been using Primary/Secondary for decades.

It's not desperation or ignorance. It's called "fact-checking" and it's what media is supposed to be doing.

I'm playing through Witcher 1 now, and haven't had any issues with the combat. If anything, it's too simplistic. Click on monster, wait for flaming sword, click again, repeat ad nauseam. Throw in the occasional potion, style change, or sign. I'm dying a lot more than I ever did in Skyrim, though, so it's more challenging combat despite the simplicity.

The Witcher games have been near the top of my to-play list for a while now, so this is perfect for me. Got all 3 for less than $20. That ought to keep me busy for a loooong time.

And how much it would cost the businesses to run their own ordering web site, do their advertising, and hire drivers for delivery?

Bring back SKATE, please. I played the hell out of those games. And unlike a lot of other sports games I didn't feel like a lazy slob for not going out and playing for real, since there's no way I'd be brave/stupid enough to try most of those tricks in real life.

Outlook for the web has been around for over 20 years now, and even 20 years ago it had more features than gmail currently has. I'd love to be able to go back to Outlook, but my company is all-in on gmail.

I'll third Roku. They're cheap, fast, easy, and fairly powerful. Even the medium level sticks will do 4K UHD. I've got them connected to every TV in the house now. I also have a Shield, but the Roku gets used 95% of the time since it's faster to get to the apps.

Okay, I've got it figured out. It always starts in threaded view, so I have to hit one of the flat view buttons first. I thought the threaded button was a toggle, but turns out it only works one way to take you from flat view to threaded view.

I much prefer the old flat view style. Is there a way to set that to default? I didn't see anything obvious in my account settings.

The comment section looks broken to me today. Every comment is its own thread that I have to click on to view. I noticed yesterday that I could switch between separate comments vs. seeing all comments by clicking the icon next to "View", but today that button does nothing for me. I tried it in both Chrome and Firefox, but get the same behavior.

I suffered through the first episode of Tiger King. I found it mostly a depressing story about trash humans I don't care about, and have no interest in. I think the reality TV comparison is apt.
