I had to ditch my old phone as it would not upgrade past android 5 and the state government's QR check in app only supports android 6 and up.
So I bought a samsung galaxy s9.
Frankly I was disgusted with the amount of crap that it comes preinstalled with.
What I was most annoyed about though was that so much of the crap can't be properly uninstalled. I've spent too much time disabling permissions and trying to decypher dark patterns. I've had moderate success getting things into better shape but it is still less than ideal.
If I'd had more time I would've never purchased this phone. But it was cheap and I need the app to move around as freely as is allowed. We are still in lockdown

This is definitely shaping up to be the dumb, intolerant generation in some respects--it must be awful to have to go through life censoring--or trying to censor--every opinion you find personally disagreeable. Sounds like a lot of useless work for no reward except maybe ignorance. Such conduct does nothing to convince anyone of a contrary opinion. OTOH, I often like to hear and read opinions that differ from my own because of the slim possibility that I might learn something, or that they might actually think of something that hadn't occurred to me. In a free society, it is called debate, and if you cannot debate your point of view then censoring someone else's contrary opinion sure won't carry the day. It's called "having an open mind," which seems to be a rarity these days.
Whistleblowing does not equal absolute truth--and I'm surprised that isn't common sense these days. It's a self-evident truth. Too many people are ready to jump on the bandwagon whenever an accuser speaks. Maybe I'm an oddball, but for me, accusations do not equal "evidence"--evidence is something entirely separate from mere accusation. If you set out to hurt someone, then you better darn well have all your ducks in a row and be able to prove your case in an objective sense. We've seen far too much pettiness and narrow-mindedness in the politics of the last five years. Anyone that has to block others from reading opinion articles--well, there's just something wrong with that person, imo. In all of my life I've never seen people more afraid of words, and people who hold strong opinions but are completely unable to support or justify those opinions, who think that censorship is "debate." Censorship is the opposite, the absence, of debate. Debate is healthy, censorship is a disease in a free-speech zone like America.

Sweetie there's no need for you to feel ashamed. But rest assured your ignorance and anti-vaxxer trolling is lame and sad.
People like you are what's wrong w/the world today.
Btw, I thought that was the whole point of calling people with opposing viewpoints anti-vaxxers and grandma killers. To instill a sense of shame and remorse for...well...wanting to kill all the grandmas in the world. We are horrible people, aren't we?
When "other people" stop writing silly #*$& in their taglines maybe I'll remove mine. Until then read it again!
