He basically plans to resume NSEER.
All that did for me back in 04 and 05 was take me in another room and fill out ridiculous paper work such as what is my eye color and peripheral questions like that.
it's like being asked on abortion or gay rights, My primary physician works at Baptist Hospital who are against abortions, I think the parents should have every right to decide, both parties male and female should get to decide if they want an abortion however I am not going to switch hospitals because Baptists are against it. I go there because I have an awesome PCP.

Here's another example. Gay people. I had gay friends in Pakistan even though it is officially illegal there. I seem to be coming across good gay friends here. But when I'm hungry I go to Chick-Fil-A. It is an awesome restaurant. I love there burgers.

This thread was about which service is better and discuss the specifics of UI. I agree that we should have the right to our privacy. But I made this thread to really discuss email user interface. So calm down and read something from Twain as Orwell is clearly getting you down.

I hope the Muslim camps have WiFi so you can still post around here, but if not, this is an early goodbye.

I don't understand how either of these examples has anything to do with the subject at hand.

Also, Chick-fil-A doesn't serve burgers, so I'm not sure what you're doing over there...

I doubt you understood 1984. Otherwise you would see that it's not some paranoid fairy tale that doesn't concern you, but that the incidents and the progression in that book are very real, happening right now and you are responsible for that as well.
And you for sure wouldn't piss away your and other's basic rights because some Mexican wanted $2 from you for providing an actual service. The entitlement is unreal.
To think that Snowden is still not pardoned and has to live in hiding, while other whistle blowers were killed, drugged and put into solitary confinement until they went insane, because the public is as ignorant as you are honestly makes me angry, I won't mince words here.
It's not our job to educate you while you say "i don't get it, gmail seems cool, i have youtube on there, too! Stuff's so convenient". If you live in the 21st year hundred with all the information right in front you and all these things happening right in front of your eyes and you still look away and don't think you need to educate yourself about privacy you are absolutely clueless and deserve to be disrespected by the people who are speaking out against you here.
People are dying out there, falsely accused and put into prison because they're telling the inconvenient truth about corrupt people in power and people like your are responsible for it. This is not about your porn subscriptions, wake up! No one's asking you to be a hero and kill some dictator after living in the desert for dozens of yours. Just sacrifice some of your convenience so the public can be safe. In the case of email using protonmail you're not even losing convenience, so I don't know what you're even rambling about, it's ridiculous.

Okay, a lot of passion here.

First of all, basically a chicken breast between buns is what I assumed to be a burger. I looked at their menu and they don't use the word burger. Now what is the difference between a burger and a sandwich. I always thought sandwiches came in toast and burgers came in buns.

Second, the analogy of Baptist Hospital and Chick-Fil-A was meant to illustrate I don't support the wrong things these institutions do, but I do use their products.

I see, our community is very passionate about the issue.

@ Bogglez: Basically you are saying all of us who use gmail and hotmail are making the world a dangerous place. Just like all of us who eat Chick-Fil-A knowing the company owners hate gays are making the world dangerous for homosexuals.

I posted a video earlier on Facebook, how they are using our metadata and selling to advertisers for $12 a person. Darc, I for one know you are on Facebook?

@ Boney: I have no idea what you wrote. I think that is suppose to be urdu but it is just alphabets strung together. They mean nothing. I bet you used Google translator.

A burger is a beef patty between buns. A sandwich is pretty much anything between bread.

Basically you are saying everyone who play iPhone games are women and homosexuals. Just like the truck stop has prostitutes, but I stop off for gas and coffee if I have to. It does not make me whoreman or pimp in a proxy for supporting the market grounds.

This is my analogy for why Windows Vista was underrated.

Now we will get back on topic. Internet Explorer 6 or AOL? Please don't inform me of other web browsers, they are of a different configuration so they do not attract a lot of attention from me.

I really like the text smoothing filter in IE6, but AOL has the IM feature

Currently, I have both.

@ EvilTaco: Funny and accurate.

The analogy was made in an attempt to illustrate just cause I use gmail/hotmail I don't support invasion of privacy. I thought it worked but then again, I think your truckstop analogy works too. So clearly, it isn't coming off as a good analogy. Noted.

@ Darc: Beefy patty between buns only?
Is that the only reason chick-fil-a sandwiches are not burgers.
Cause I've had chicken burgers from countless restaurants across the globe.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burger

I've really poured a lot of time into this, lol.
So i'll conclude that burger is a type of sandwich with a patty between bun.

So Chick-Fil-A sandwiches are burgers.

NEXT

Lastly the Arabic is spelled and translated incorrectly.

Spelling it in English Boney may have tried to say "Asalam Alikhum" which means "peace be - upon you" but the closest think it resembles is, "peace you". The translation is also missing "khum" entirely which makes it make no sense. Now you'd be wondering how I know this when I said I don't speak Arabic.

Well, in school we are taught how to read Arabic but not how to understand it. Second, Muslims like Jews use certain words in their day to day communication from a foreign language. Like Jews say Shaloum

LASTLY

Back on topic tell me does Proton mail have a drive. So I can email attachments over 25MB? Does it have a text editing software so I can open and edit documents online without downloading them? Cause features like those are part of emails now days.

Does it allow to label emails as file as file them in folders like gmail?

Is the interface more like hotmail or gmail?

I didn't translate or spell anything. I just went here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_be_upon_him

And copy pasted from the first line
The Arabic phrase ʿalayhi as-salām (عليه السلام), which translates as "peace be upon him" is a conventionally complimentary phrase or durood attached to the names of the prophets in Islam.
I admit it could very well be wrong though. I remember trying to research Dreamcast homebrew on there once and all the articles were really inaccurate.

I tried Googling it but my wife closed my computer after I started throwing stones at her and shooting the ceiling with an AK47.

I don't know, I guess I was wrong.
I don't speak arabic.
It is hard to make sense of the Arabic words pictured on the right, it's hard reading stylized caligraphy words on top of each other instead of right to left.

Basically I confused it with this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/As-salamu_alaykum
Which evidently translates into the same thing.

No, Chick-fil-A sandwiches are not burgers. However, it isn't out of the ordinary for a burger establishment, that is, a restaurant whose primary business is to sell beef patties between buns, to sell a variety of other meat options and call them "[whatever] burgers." For example, if a group of 8 friends wants to go out to dinner, and they choose to go to a burger restaurant, but 1 of the friends is a vegetarian, there is a problem. For this reason, many burger restaurants offers a "veggie burger" -- that is, a sandwich with vegetables on it. But no one would ever otherwise qualify such a sandwich as a "burger" outside of the context of the burger restaurant offering it as an alternative to a regular burger. Likewise with a "chicken burger," if a burger restaurant offers a chicken patty as an alternative to a beef patty, they might call it a "chicken burger."

But if you went to Chick-fil-A and asked, "Do you sell burgers?" they would say "No, we don't serve burgers."

No, it does not include a drive. It is an email service, not a cloud storage service.
The maximum attachment size is 25MB.
No, it does not include text editing software. It is an email service, not an office suite.

Yes, it allows labels.

@ Darc: The arabic cursing for was Boney.
Didn't read your earlier post.

Thanks for clarifying. Given how much I use Drive/OneBox and text editing are an essential part of communication now days. Proton is a no go, what would be the point of encryption if an emailed document is still in my Google Drive?

Nonetheless, I appreciate you educating me on encryption and showing how you are all passionate about it. I really hope that the big companies get around to it. For the time being I will keep my hotmail and not create a second Gmail. I also hope Hotmail improves their mail filing system.

Back to Offtopic:

KFC disagrees with you
The Zinger Burger, a type of burger made by KFC
We all know KFC only serves Chicken.
https://www.kfc.com.au/menu/burgers/zinger
Key Difference: A sandwich is cooked by generally placing a filling of meat or vegetables between two bread slices (flat bread) while a burger is cooked by placing a filling of meat or vegetables between a bun, sliced into two. The main difference is; sandwich uses flat bread for binding and a burger uses bun for binding the filling.
Source: http://www.differencebetween.info/diffe ... d-sandwich
A patty on a plate (such as often served in Japanese curry places) would be referred to as a hamburger steak. A turkey burger would specifically refer to a patty of ground turkey, which may come with or without a bun. A turkey sandwich would imply the turkey was not ground, but still served between bread.Sep 27, 2014

Most people here in the UK would definitely call them chicken burgers over chicken sandwiches. KFC items are all burgers - Zinger Burger, Big Daddy Burger etc. Although McDonald's do call it a McChicken Sandwich, but I think that might just be a naming thing.

With a couple of exceptions, "sandwich" over here is something between 2 slices of normal bread. If I went to a pub and ordered a chicken sandwich I'd expect cut roast chicken between 2 bits of bread. While a chicken burger I'd expect a circle of chicken meat in breadcrumbs.

Actually...wow. I just checked the US KFC website and there's like no burgers (sandwiches) at all. Very surprising.

I suppose it is an American cookie vs biscuit type situation. I didn't visit the KFC website either, I've not been to KFC here. They don't even have a Zinger on the menu :/. I remember going to Dubai and seeing all sorts of Arabian burgers that weren't offered in Pakistan but I always thought Zinger was a staple of the franchise.

Anyway if you visit the Quora link, Americans are discussing what they call a burger depending on where they are on the map as well. So there is variance in terminology depending on where you are in the country.
