Quotes

"We didn’t really know any better at the time. We figured that’s what working bands do. You pay your dues, play tons of shows, drive thousands of miles and hope you build some buzz and catch a break. Some of the bands we played with went on to successful careers. But most, like us, eventually threw in the towel. We moved on for the same reason most working artists do; we had no platform to get large-scale exposure."
"They will see a fiery crescent sinking below the horizon, dimmed to human visibility by low-hanging clouds and mist."
"We also worked closely with Microsoft to protect our users' privacy. Apple forwards only commonly searched terms and only city-level location information to Bing. Microsoft does not store search queries or receive users' IP addresses."
"Most fundamentally," he continued, "the DEA's actions threaten the integrity of our community. Facebook strives to maintain a safe, trusted environment where people can engage in authentic interactions with the people they know and meet in real life. Using Facebook to impersonate others abuses that trust and makes people feel less safe and secure when using our service. Indeed, as we have observed at Facebook, such deceptive actions are often used to further harmful conduct, such as trolling, hate speech, scams, bullying, and even domestic violence. This impact is markedly different from undercover investigations conducted in the realreal world."
