    Can the government see what you do on the internet on your phone?

    So my idiot younger brother had my phone the other day and was looking up “teen porn” on my phone. Is that something I’ll get in trouble for?

    What is wrong with my computer? Windows 98 is acting strange?

    My computer has progressively lost functionality working worse and worse over time. 

    A couple years ago AOL quit working to login and I stopped getting the - Welcome , you’ve got mail! Message when I went online in AOL 4.0

    I then had to try and get online another way and was able to get a neighbor kid to install a radio antenna on my computer plugged into the scanner port and connect some sort of box to the phone line and this blue/black box with rabbit ears on it.

    I then called the phone company to set up internet and they told me I couldn’t use aol and how there was outlook and internet explorer which were used instead of aol 4.0

    The internet works like CRAP and most sites still don’t load in internet explorer and outlook 97 doesn’t work with the new email systems very well. 

    It doesn’t say welcome and say you’ve got mail anymore and I can’t get my email anymore. 

    What happened? What could be wrong?

    Why use Chrome?

    I don't see any point in using Chrome any more. Edge is faster, has more privacy and uses the chrome store too.

    What  is the most expensive thing you have bought off Ebay?

    Favourite answer:

    I just bought a Swarovski crystal piece......originally $600.......but now retired, and  most sellers asking over $2000.......but I found a seller only asking $1,100......and talked them down to $900  and she accepted the offer. 

    Alas, when I got it,  easy to see why her price was so low, and so eager to take the discount.....there was a tiny, microscopic pinhead prick on it.... which would have rendered it worthless to any serious collector. 

    But it would be barely noticeable on display, of course......but still, she advertised as MINT, and it clearly wasn't.....so I complained, and she offered another $150  refund......... so,  $750,  seemed fair then.....since the piece can't be had for less than  $1,500,-$2000 these days. 

    I can live with the pinhead prick, since my intention isn't to re-sell, and just wanted to complete the series. 

    so, only $750, with another $50 for postage........so, $800. 

    That's been my most expensive EBAY  buy  so far.  But many others in the $500-$600 range.

    Why is Instagram so stupid and pointless? Should I stop using it?

    Ok so I have like a 1,000 followers on Instagram and I posted a picture of myself. A few hours went by and I only received 4 likes on my pictures and I’m like wait a minute that’s bull crap! I have 1,000 followers how am I only getting 4 likes on a picture??? So I figured out the reason why. It was because of Instagram’s stupid algorithms and Instagram doesn’t show ALL  people my pictures and like that’s so stupid! What is the point in even posting pictures online if more than half of your followers are not going to see them and what’s the point in following people if you know that you are not going to see ALL of the new pictures they post??? So after figuring out that dumb issue with Instagram’s algorithm, I literally had to spend about an hour liking a picture of ALL 1,000 followers just to get all of them to notice and I only received an additional 30 likes back the next day on that one picture I posted? So why couldn’t Instagram do something like this for me and everybody else using this app? Should I really consider deleting it then if it’s going to be that stupid and pointless???

    Is it wrong to torrent all my favorite 90s television, instead of subscribing to 5+ streaming services?

    Yes, I know torrenting copyrighted TV is deemed illegal in the eyes of the law. Do YOU (as in YOURSELF) consider it wrong? 

    I DO subscribe to Netflix, but it doesn't always have everything, and stuff is constantly removed without warning. Is it wrong to simply torrent my favorite 90s shows, instead of signing up for 5+ individual streaming services, or buying DRM infested content that you can't do anything with?

    Recover a banned tinder account?

    I’ve been banned from tinder and found that I can’t use this phone number to make a new account, and I can’t log in on this device ever again, even if it’s with someone else’s account or with a burner number. What can I do? I’m down to use weird websites or hack the system or something to get it back. Has anyone successfully been able to use tinder on their device again after being banned?

    Why can't all websites be country specific?

    Favourite answer:

    Websites can be country-specific if the owners choose them to be. Using a DNS service like Cloudflare, access can be limited. That too can be bypassed by using VPNs that mask the actual IP of a visitor and helps users browse a website from a location where it's not blocked.

    I was posted on a porn site, how to remove?

    I was posted on a porn site called daftsex. It’s not a sexual video, it’s just a video of me - underage, my content that I posted so I could DMCA, posted without my consent. It has my name in and it’s disgusting to me, I’ve contacted them twice months ago and again today but they haven’t replied. Any help?:(

    Why do I keep being sent a message my firefox has crashed. I checked & it's the latest edition.?

    Favourite answer:

    First try what user BigE wrote about the extensions. DON'T delete and reinstall except as a LAST RESORT after trying other minor tweeks. I've been using Firefox for over ten years and it's robust and forgiving about minor glitches. The only time I get regular crashes is when I have too many tabs open in various windows.

    As a school student I said I'm interested because I need job but when I asked what's exactly the job she /he said you'll have to fill this form which requires my name & phone number. They said they can't tell what's the job until i gave my phone number. I wonder why the hell they need phone number to tell what's the job. Why not first tell me what's job & then let me decide if i wanna do or not

    Should sites like PornHub and OnlyFans be banned?

    Favourite answer:

    In my personal opinion, banning such sites is necessary, especially since modern technology reaches everyone, whether adult or young, and watching such sites arouse the instincts of young men and girls, which may lead them to rape or any kind of sexual crime. Personal freedom is required, but it stands at the violation of the freedoms of others, and in order to build a clean, conservative, and respectful society, one must move away from everything that disturbs these morals, including such sites.
