Seems to me it's not the same, who aside from Moss sends an email when there's a fire or emergency? No you dial 911 or 999 depending on country or 0118 999 881 999 119 7253.

Let's also be clear you could not use a phone to look at porn.

Let's assume this is a good program, now where exactly will the funds come from for these underprivileged people to be able to afford computers? Will these be provided?

This is the straw that broke Perl's back.
