Thanks, although I had to look up in Urban Dictionary what a DD/lg relationship meant. Makes me wonder what the author assumes about his presumably conservative adult readership's knowledge of textspeak....Innocent me.

The Internet was a DARPA project. The invention of the black box came from Adolf Hitler.

Sometimes evil things can produce good stuff. Not that I think Elon Musk is evil, just saying that he can do good despite having goofy beliefs.

I don't think this is a concern.

Totally different. Spam is blocked used machine learning where as blocking an IP to a known server is far simpler. I could block all of China from Fish Eaters in 3 seconds.....

Isn't it Church teaching that God allows evil in his permissive will so that better things can result from it?
