Weird. Were they purchased or taken over?

My wife swears by KV, and I won a KV Pro license by interacting with them on Facebook (I know, I know). I gave it to her. I just use jdownloader2, KV has always been a second rate experience in my book, but they are easy. But I mean, with jdownloader2, you just copy the URL, jdownloader2 catches it, and makes it easy to download. But both jdownloader2 and KV Pro are just graphical frontends for youtube-dl, among others, as I understand it.

I'm morally opposed to all infant genital mutilation, whether it's done to boys or girls. It's a cosmetic procedure that is done for reasons personal to the parents and/or community, so I agree with /u/libre_dev, it's child abuse. Specifically, it's child sexual abuse, since it's abuse of their sex organs. Now, I do realise that female genital mutilation is more invasive and in fact worse; however, both are bad and we should all, those of us who oppose either, that is, stand against all of it as a single offensive practice.

For music, mainly it's Spotify. I got my first iPhone 23 months ago, and while I don't dislike it (I'm a phone guy with no loyalty, never tried Apple before and I wanted to), I don't like how it does music, so I just use Spotify mainly.

Backup is Google Play Music, where I have all my legally purchased music uploaded. GPM works fine on iPhone, only it doesn't have the music store the Android version does (though I can go to it on the web, so FU Apple).

Tertiary is TinyMusic, an app I can sideload music into. It's where I keep stuff that is 100% offline that I can have regardless of data connection.

Video is similar, mostly it's legal streaming through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or Funimation Now (gotta scratch that anime itch). We also have Plex for watching ripped DVDs on the TV.

I simply try to be a better person, not than the next person, but than the person I was the day before. I haven't had to deal so much with bigots who dislike me for being progressive so much as I feel that, as an Atheist, there's a greater expectation of morality. Christians have teachings from the Bible, but Atheists have only Humanism, and somehow that isn't as tangible, so I try to set the example.

I'm not always successful, but I try. I live in the South, so I'm in a hotbed for bigotry. I've just been rather fortunate.
