Why is #WhatsApp Popular?

Please share or give references so #FreeSoftware instant messengers can improve and not repeating same mistakes as BlackBerry Messenger did.

Imagine that for one year you can have only one of those. Which one would it be?

P.S.: you know what to do to get a better result 🔁

Just in case anyone is concerned about how fast the COVID-19 vaccines were produced: it is because they are variants of the SARS vaccine, which we've had for more than a decade.

COVID-19 can be treated with a variant of the SARS vaccine because COVID-19 is a variant of SARS. The virus that causes SARS is SARS-CoV, and the 2019 novel coronavirus is SARS-CoV-2.

Because of this, researchers had a vaccine ready for testing as early as January 2020. The COVID-19 vaccine had, in fact, nearly a full year of testing and refinement. It is not by any means "experimental" or "untested".

Request for advice, crows 

There's a crow asleep in my garden. I've gone and checked on them, they're not injured, when I went close they lifted their head up, looked at me, then put their head back under their wing.

What's best to do for them? Are they just away from the roost because they're near death? #crow #corvid #crows

Sind Blutspendeposts jetzt eigentlich schon etablierte Indikatoren für "hetero oder zu lange kein Sex mehr"? 🙊
Dass heute #Weltblutspendetag ist, hab ich erst vor Ort erfahren. Nicht nur an diesem Tag gilt: Weg mit diskriminierenden Spendeeinschränkungen!

The other day I saw someone on here complain about checking in to venues using . I can't remember who it was, but I've just found out about (on ) which mimics the look of Luca and checks in but without any personal data. I'm not sure how to feel about this because people should be using the cwa-warn app not some privacy invading alternative, but I don't know what happens if someone checks in with Lucia and then there's a case...

corona check in apps 

I don't use the luca app, so I had to fill out a paper form.
I really would prefer if stores used the CWA (Corona Warn App) because it's good, it's safe, and you only need one app for everything.

Why is no-one talking about the fact that on entry to the from an "Amber list" country you must buy multiple tests from commercial providers and "NHS tests" are not accepted? Enforcing purchase of tests from a select list is pure . I am living abroad and am travelling to visit my critically ill mother, not a holidaymaker fwiw.

re: Guilty/Onions (Img text) 

Q: What's the kindest thing a stranger has done or said to you?

A: Oh God! I can't even tell this story and not cry.
I used to manage an LGBT bookstore, when bookstores were still a thing. One night, a caller says he thinks he might be gay and is considering self-harm. We were not a crisis center!
But as long as we're talking, he's safe, right?

So I talk to this guy and I answer questions, and I try to be encouraging and I'm maybe sounding a little frantic and I'm definitely ignoring the 4--5 customers in the store, and this angel of a woman puts her hand on my shoulder and asks for the phone.
"My turn, she says".

And SHE, this 50-something lesbian talks to this stranger on the phone. And a LINE FORMS BEHIND HER. Every csutomer in the store knows that call, knows that feeling, and eveyr person takes a turn talking to that man.
That story comforts me so much to this day.
