Thanks Matrix, I would never post anything that wasn't protected by free speech, nor would I seek to disrupt anything for the sake of disruption. Perhaps my feeling of additional privacy is false, however, I've been told otherwise. One reason for VPN (my first reason) is to have access to blocked sites depending on one's location. If you've ever used VPN, you'd be startled over who's blocking what.
I really liked that once I registered, I could immediately post. Pretty cool feature. I really appreciate I'm not blocked right now, because VPN is my default mode.
I can stream video from Russia with no perceivable speed problems. Perhaps not all VPN services are the same.
Anyway, love the BB and thanks to all who make it what it is.
