It only takes a few seconds to find out it's an instant messenger, but I agree it wouldn't have been a bad idea to add those two descriptive words at the beginning of the summary. WhatsApp's popularity AFAIK is largely thanks to the fact it works on cheap "feature phones" as well as beefier devices. I like to keep things simple so I run WhatsApp on Android-x86 which in turn runs in Virtualbox on my desktop computer. :-)

Agoraphobia and anxiety disorders in general can absolutely be disabling and I wouldn't wish them on anyone. Also, where in the world is any disability benefit high enough for someone to buy even one car and enough gas to drive around leisurely? (Unless I misunderstood and your sister only bought the 4-wheelers and the RV after earning the money for them in a truly American way: winning lawsuits :-))

I wonder if people sentenced for "expressing support for the attacks" includes any vocal critics of surveillance or related government actions. Also punishing those who don't readily condemn terrorism sounds like terrifying thoughtcrime stuff; I hope governments heard me condemning the attacks to my dog so I don't get raided.

Real programs don't eat cache.
