True. But I don't think most of the rest of the world has a crucial election coming up in six weeks; and I think not everyplace has complicated voting eligibility rules in which depending on what...

Had you used your snopes password on the chromebook before you lost the password, though?

If so, I withdraw my grumble. If not, I don't see how the chromebook got the password in the first place,...

A very good point.

Don't silence Keller. Teach why she said what she did; and why and where she was wrong. It wasn't only Keller, after all; a lot of people made that same mistake for similar...
