There better be harsh penalties for the insider trading among US congressmen/women and the other wealthy individuals. Given they are in cahoots together, I doubt they'd punish themselves.

I've seen so many people recently use apps to *add* grain to photos. I work so hard to remove as many traces of grain as possible!

(Granted, if there's no color noise, this can occasionally add a 'mood' to a photo -- and I still end up with grain when shooting at high ISOs but almost always convert to b&w as color grain is just too nasty)

Did you need a `Task`-like FFI/port for some code? The creator says maybe you should just use ReasonML or PureScript discourse.elm-lang.org/t/chadt ... Buddy, don't tempt me like that. Alternatives to my issue can't include regular ports because there's no sane way to send `Bytes` or a `File` without conversion to like a string or something inefficient. Other alternatives like the `Porter` lib involve a dictionary and an incrementing counter to handle as a hack to the lack of FFI code that was stripped from us in v0.18. I'm just not sure what to do now. :|

I spoke with some American English teacher in Thailand. They were laughing about marking answers incorrect like "at the weekend". 😂

SMS is not a secure form of OTP. Proprietary in-app QR codes is also a terrible OTP option, not just for people that don't have or want a phone, but since the code isn't open source I can't trust it's not hackable. If you have 2 bad OTP options, why not support one of the 2 good ones like FIDO2 and/or TOTP via something like andOTP where the keys can be independent from a device and are open protocols supported by many other platforms?

Why does the K Bank Android app send tracking data to Facebook and Google?

Why is live chat via Facebook when we all know Facebook is morally-bankrupt and also terrible about privacy? This is a bank so the information needs to stay private

This form and some other forms include Google's reCAPTCHA -- and a) I don't want to solve Google's puzzles and b) I don't want Google having access to anything related to banking. Why are you doing this?
