I never suggested that all family members and collegues need to do any
such thing, so why should I come up with that secret? 

Is that what this thread is about? I thought this thread was a
Chromebook advertising clownfest, but I see I am wrong! It is actually
about how people are defensive about their compromises to freedom and
want to fight about that.

I have a hard time responding to that question when you don't bother
citing whatever it is you are disagreeing with and instead just top post
on top of what I wrote.

ok, you are probably right, it is just so wrong in so many ways, that I
can't do anything but snipe and run away. So I give up. I can't even
begin to start unpacking what is wrong in many of the things I've read
here, so I give up. 

I'm turning off the internet, everyone out.
