...that crappy App that Facebook pulled out of their existing App and which I refuse to install because I shouldn't need a separate app or still another chat client.

In other news, when did people become so lazy that everyone uses chat because clicking on an email app is just too big a hassle?

I'm pretty sure you can use the FB messenger app without having a FB account now. They want you to use it as a standard SMS and phone callinging app. This is why it's a standalone app.

For your tech savvy person sure this can be done. I use to do it all the time. However go to your normal user and say this to them. They won't know what the hell you're talking about. Most people can't do this.. Most people shouldn't do this because they will do something wrong and brick the device.

Anyone able to modify their hosts file most likely has better means to block the app from doing things such as using Xposed. Also the fact that host names can change all the time, it could be a never ending battle. Also what if they use direct IPs? Back to using Xposed for that one.

FOX could probably be sued for issuing a false takedown notice.

I agree they should be but i highly doubt it will happen. FOX and many others know this and thus just throw these takedown notices out as fast as they can print them. Most people won't fight and their content stays offline. FOX then gets to take credit for the content.

I love when people like you feel the need to berate others for buying and using a device you personally hate or feel is a gimmick. Why do you care what others spend their money and time on?

I personally feel what he's using his for is 100% valid and if I had one would use it for the same things. I considered getting one but I just don't like Amazon and I'm neck deep in Google services (which I like) and the Echo does't work with them. I will be looking closely at the Google version and just might get it of not to expensive.
