"Children go to school expecting to be shot"

No they don't. They are about a thousand times more likely to be killed by a car on the school run then they are to be killed by a school shooter.

"Just like I expect them to evaluate the reliability of their sources." In general I agree but this was an 'ongoing' situation which they had strong reason to believe could go lethal at any moment.

"the more trade there is, and the freer it is, the better off - in aggregate - is everyone concerned"

Which is why the customs union is such a shitty idea - it restricts us from agreeing free trade deals with other nations.

This is exactly what Obama's campaign did, and FB provided the data willingly (and enthusiastically).

Why are you fuckwits down-voting this? The article clearly states:

Re: I've been pointing this out for years.

The higher the penetration of EV's get, the less likely it is that a 'normal' user will go through all this. They will expect to be able to plug in whenever they want.

Re: 3 year warranty if you registered online

If you did that and then needed to claim on the extended warranty, I think you will find that providing false data invalidates it.

Re: There wouldn't be such a push to kill neutrality...?

Why do these places only have one or two options? Because the STATE mandates it.

Re: Have they tried...

I agree with most of what you say but '$400 just isn't a reasonable price' is crap. It just isn't a price you are willing to pay. So you won't and you will go elsewhere. And most likely PB have destroyed their business by demanding it.

Re: "I'd bet a bunch of those people would've ponied up for $5-$10/month."

There is no such thing as 'fair pricing' - people will pay what they are willing to pay. PB's pricing scheme is suicidal.
