It’s mesmerizing how an appeal to human nature can also be an appeal to contradiction itself. Humans operate in perpetual extremes and contradictions — if everyone wants decentralization today, they’ll eventually want centralization tomorrow, and vice versa. Philosophically, it’s an airtight appeal because the contradiction can be anything time/history allows.

There’s this crow outside that insists on plucking coconuts. A while back I was
in a coconut tree (don’t ask), and there it was — a crow setting up its nest.
I assisted by creating more space and since then it’s been obsessed with
plucking coconuts. It’s dropping young and old ones faster than I’m willing to
deal with them.

My favorite way to know if a product/service works as advertised is to… use it. The devil is (usually) in the details, and the proof is in the eating. People naturally identify with the software/services they use, so getting an accurate picture (as an outsider) is tricky nowadays. A TOS can also give insight into a company’s product/service.
