I was tooling around in the freebie Advanced Escort for a long time. I recently acquired a Fleet Chimera Heavy Destroyer in exchange for just 20,000 fleet credits and a single 500 zen ship module, though you do have to be Vice Admiral rank and your fleet has to have a tier 2 Dyson sphere spire in order to get it. The nice thing is even if I didn't want to spend $5 on the ship module, it really wouldn't take much time to earn/mine enough dilithium to exchange for the zen, I just tend to put all of my earned dilithium into the fleet unless I have a project that needs it, which is pretty seldom.

I'm glad they added ship loadouts. It makes it easy to swap your best gear out between ships so that you can use whichever one you want for a task instead of using one and having seven (or more) collecting dust.

This is how I feel about Star Trek Online. It's not the greatest game, but you can play through the storyline and participate in combat or events without ever feeling like the game is giving unfair advantages to paying players. It's probably one of the most fair systems I have seen in a free MMO and I have spent small amounts over the course of several years on it specifically because I wanted to help support it.

I still don't see a need. I already get unlimited SMS on my mobile plan and those don't eat into my internet quota. I also don't know a single person who uses WhatsApp, but I do know many who use GTalk/Hangouts and Live Messenger/Skype.

If there is something special about WhatsApp, I'm having a difficult time seeing it.

The law isn't black and white. There are degrees of seriousness and police need to manage their time to most effectively pursue the people who are causing real trouble.

I have had police let me go for being drunk or stoned in public before, simply because I wasn't causing problems and they have bigger fish to fry.
