This is totally besides the point.

It's FB wanting to force people to use their real name, so they can identify you to do more stuff they shouldnt with your data.
And now that there's a giant move to Ello, or at least it's starting, they're backtracking.
They are catering to their profits, not to any subset of their users.

Lots of people use fake names, just because they dont want to use their real names. Not because we were all molested.

If we could build a colony on mars, a harsh, deadly environment, why couldnt we just build the colony here if it goes a little worse.

We'll need a gigantic amount of pollution to make earth worse of a habitat then mars, no?
I mean, it doesnt even have a decent atmosphere to protect us from outer space radiation or just space junk flying around...

Why would I have to pay extra because I'm tall? I already have to pay extra for heavy luggage, while a fatty who's short has all the room and takes multiples of my weight on board, while harassing their neighbors with the fat rolls lunging over the arm rest...

Why are the flight prices always getting cheaper while the comfort gets worse, it makes no sense to me, airline comfort was already low.
I can fly from Holland to Greece for 5 euros, but I cant get some legroom if I want to pay 50? I'm not sure these people know maths...
