@Gargron It's the Pokemon company realizing that those of us who grew up with the early Game Boy games are now old enough to want to watch something like this.

Asking someone a question is completely different from looking the answer up. Humans are able to contextualise questions, highlight the important bits and add any info from personal experience, as well as tailor the answer to the the asker and their situation.

"You're almost always a cat."
"It's one of what I am."

The main thing is that I can't figure out how to see different instances or look through things

I'm not joking either, I really still don't get it

Okay, why the heck is this updated privacy policy thing a meme?

And why am I getting the vibe that people think it's a bad thing?

Am I just misreading the situation and people are actually *just* responding to the fact that everybody's updating their privacy policy due to the changed laws in the UK?

I just got this email from eBay asking me to sign this petition...

It really looks to me like a deceptive attempt to get people to go against net neutrality
