    Let the business succeed or fail based on how the market reacts. Remember myspace, and how absolutely everyone used it? Remember Sears? The market will always work itself out, unless there's some outside force.

    What constituents hate speech? Similar issue. Censorship is a very slippery slope. But it's their playground and they get to make the rules.

    $12,000 a year for everyone in America making less than $100k a year? Not much incentive to work. The party of "free stuff" is really going extreme.

    But, something has to be done about the address bar on the bottom. It's always present, even as I type this. It should autohide or have an option to put it up top.

    Slightly off topic, but it's weird these are called refunds. It's really change from over-paying all year long.
