this goes to show how fundamentally sketchy private security companies are even if they're normally fighting supposedly legitimate wars

Not sure if you've hand-picked only Biden fans, but I'm fairly certain that you also have Trump supporters who listen. Disappointed you didn't play any messages (maybe no Trump supporters left any?) of how a Biden election impacts Trump voters. Apparently it was foolish of me, but I expected more from all of you.

I remember when I watched Carlos' Strikethrough videos years ago. I thought he was so smart and genuine. I was glad a gay latino man had that space to speak his views, completely ignoring the harassment he was actually living. Thankfully, Carlos is back on Youtube with his own channel and I really hope he will keep getting support for the project to grow, but he is still vulnerable to bullies and trolls. Platforms need to be as strict enforcing anti-harassment community guidelines as they are with copyright, or this will only get worse.

by far one of their worst episodes. Talking about rudimentary app that analyzes words for 33 minutes. And at the end they just say that you need self care and happiness, duh. This show used to be fun, with mystery, drama, talking about cool tech. But now more and more episodes become disappointing.

I recently called a small business's number that ended up being a switchboard with a live operator who asked which business I need to be connected with and wouldn't give the direct number. she said the business's name was "Corporate Offices." I believe she said it was in Iowa? b.s. told her her business seemed mildly similar to a podcast I listened to....

It was just revealed that the factory was a fake and they did not manufacture what they said they would OR hire as many people as they claimed. Foxconn lost their subsidies. I hope ReplyAll does a follow up story.
