Just another ploy to get everyone on privacy destroying Windoze 10. My PC won't run it and I'm not buying a new one.

    Uhh... sounds like you have had a problem with IE11. Can't complain about an issue and not attempt to fix it.

    Firefox? Sure, version 79. Updates take about 2 seconds (no exaggeration) when I open it sometimes. Big deal. Plenty of other good browsers like Opera or Vivaldi.

      You should switch to Lynx. Good privacy, and only updated every few years. Sounds perfect for you.

        As cheap as computers are these days, why bother messing with an old one except for when it is needed for those programs and peripherals that require it? I have laptops with Win95 (MSDOS), Win98 (with MSDOS mode), XP, Win7, Win8, and my current machine running Win10. Just use a "burner" laptop for forums, net browsing, and email, and another machine for "serious" stuff. Don't be so paranoid - there is nobody behind that curtain watching your every move and planning to do you harm.

        Machines, computers, and the internet are much like animals:

          Guess what, *everyone* is a data collection platform nowadays. Including your own state, and they sell the info too. And your insurance companies, etc etc etc. And every store that asks for your phone or has some kind of points or loyalty card or rewards, or your credit cards, your bank, etc etc etc.

          I do care about my privacy and security, so I run the latest Firefox on FreeBSD (you won't crack that). Firefox is not sending any info that I don't tell it to -- some computers actually do give you that kind of control and freedom. And BSD (Unix) makes Linux look like a noob.

          Microsoft and Apple don't give you that kind of control or freedom. They exist to please their shareholders, not you.

            If you're so concerned about keeping your life secret, why do you advertise the fact that you carry a concealed weapon on a public forum?

              I don't. How paranoid are you? Are you such an anti-rights fanatic you assume CCW stands for concealed carry weapon every time you see it? It's the initials of my company--Custom Car Works.

                I'd never given any thought to the "like" feature until reading this thread. So by way of experimentation I gave McGyver's post (a few notches back) a "like" to see what would happen. The number (initially 1) did increment to 2, and the thumbs up icon stayed the same, BUT the word 'like" changed to "unlike" ....what's up with that? Is that just giving me a chance to revoke my "like?" Is that "unlike" only visible to me?

                  Yep, that's right. Basically just a way to say that your read and appreciate someone's post.

                    The "Like" button was implemented in an attempt to avoid posts where the entire contents, including images, is quoted, with just a comment such as "Wow", "That's nice", "Attaboy", and "I like that". Unfortunately, such posts still persist. You can give someone a tool, but you can't make them use it...

                      Right. Only you can "unlike" your "like". OTOH, some forums using vbulletin have a "dislike" button. Sometimes I'd like to have that here, but think of the flame wars it'd start. I'm sure George would have no part of such a button.

                      There are no stupid questions. But there are lots of stupid answers. This is the internet.

                        Yeah, that's all we need..... an "I hate this post" button.

                        Push button once..... it adds a "like". Push same button again, it cancels out the "like"..... So they change the button label to correspond with what would happen if you push it.

                        I actually think that change of ;label is more confusing than helpful, but a bit of thought identifies the intent.

                          Likes apply to each post individually. No one likes you, but someone occasionally might like something you write.
                          You can see your likes across all messages in the Message Center.
                          how thats weird? i dont know of any other forum, where it works like that. there seems to be no trace of any likes in the message center (notifications, go to message center). what do you do to see them?

                          also: when i refreshed the page this morning the were 8 notifications. when i clicked on them they changed to 1. maybe they were likes i still cant see, after i adjusted the setting yesteday?
