I don't know what's causing it, but while the temperatures have been mild-ish for December and January, the humidity here along the coast has been very high.  Right now, we're experiencing a week of 100% humidity (overcast, sometimes foggy, but little rain).  That's not the usual case for winters here.

Traffic / No politics. No religion.
« on: January 07, 2021, 09:22:31 PM »
I've often wondered if Facebook, Youtube, & Twitter founders ever thought of just how much money, time, and effort they'd have to put into moderating their platforms.  I now wonder if it wouldn't be cheaper to invoke WmW's first rule.

FB, I think, could withstand the impact on traffic. Youtube, too.  I don't know enough about Twitter to comment.  That said, politics & religion have been used as engagement talons and it's my understanding that the political ads have been golden revenue streams.

on behalf of the British government when selling to UK customers

The point at which VAT is collected has moved from the point of importation to the point of sale and online retailers are therefore being asked to register for UK VAT and account for VAT to HMRC. Dutch Bike Bits said that for this service the UK government intends to charge a fee

The EU will introduce similar rules in July – albeit these will of course cover 27 countries and not just one.
