...no more than 2 days without charging is considered acceptable? WTF? Thanks for just providing me with another argument I don't need a smartphone (besides privacy issues, shit update policies, the amount of malware, the fragility of the things, their price, the fact that I don't need at least 90% of what they can do...). My Nokia 2610 can easily go 2 weeks without recharging, so long as I use it as an alarm clock, for texting and a few calls. And then I was worried because it used to take longer before needing to be recharged, and now the battery is kinda old (8 years or so...). No more than 2 days without recharging, unbelievable...

No more than 1 day of active use without charging is considered acceptable. Very very few smartphone models last 2. These are very very different devices from what you would call a "phone". For many users, the ability to make/receive calls and SMS is utterly secondary to all other features.

I haven't even looked, but I bet the comments are full of posts saying something along the lines of "What if I forgot the password?" Unfortunately, this cop-out won't work or if it will, it won't for long. In many countries, the courts have already taken a stance that in such a scenario, it's at the court's discretion whether to actually believe your claim of forgetfulness or not. There is no reason to believe the exact same thing won't happen in the US.

This is not how the world works in the 21st century anymore. Of course, Google does have offices in France, but don't assume they coudn't just close them. The internet is a funny thing, it doesn't give a crap about arbitrary geographic borders. I provided you with content: my reply to your post, do I now "operate" in your country?

When the constitution was ratified, the militia was the only defense that the United States had, and all able bodied men were expected to be ready to serve.

Now, whether the militia is the intent of the second amendment is a question that we have been asking for a long time now. The wording of the second amendment is not particularly clear on that.

It can be reasonably argued that the whole point of the second amendment is to allow citizens to protect themselves from an oppressive goverment. So no, limiting it to only people serving in a federally sanctioned militia would go "just a tiny bit" against the original idea.

Source, google-translated:
The people asked for the ministry that on twitter, laws are broken (insults, privacy laws etc).
Twitter was contacted by the ministry and did nothing, so a court ordered that the only way to preserve Turkeys peoples right is to block twitter.

This is not how the internet works. You don't get to dictate what a service provided by a company located in another country does or does not offer. And the sooner your realise that your futile attempts to "erase" said service from "your internet" by various blocking methods, the faster you stop making a moron deserving utter humiliation out of yourself.
