Thank You for your informative reply. It is not clear to me why throwing ad inserts into the bin is sabotage. Deliberately and maliciously slowing a PC which can cause harm or even if it does not but merely degrades performance to the detriment of the user must be. As for leaving a paper on the tube it is not obvious to me such is legally stealing as it seems to me to be nothing more than the equivalent of lending to a friend a copy of exempli gratia a book recommended which I assume we all here have done. I am not a barrister nor solicitor nor solicitor advocate nor lawyer but I will be surprised if YouTube is not taken to court re/ this matter. So I conclude Alphabet Inc. is ether stupid or impudent.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
