Did anyone have an issue opting in for McAfee suite at $. 99 per month? They stopped giving it away for free but it says 2.99 when I try to add. Today supposedly the deadline. I called to add & spent awhile having them transfer me to the right department. BTW  I don't see any cheaper alternatives, I have 3 devices and I didn't see anything that would be as cheap as $12 /yr...
I have a one year/3 devices code for McAfee software. I'm not sure exactly which one it is. The redeem page just says McAfee multi access.  I don't need it I can give it to you if you  want.

sorry im late to this thread but if your talking about evolution i have always thought and this would be my response to this thread as well
Don't the same scientist that believe in evolution also believe in global warming and all the other problems we face thru nature ?
if so then why cant they use their own theories to solve their problems - We will just continue to evolve! why worry that the world is getting too hot or cold or anything else they say ...if i believe i evolved to adapt to the changing world around me then why wouldn't it happen again now and continue to happen whenever necessary?
the answer is pretty obvious which should show you they don't really believe in there own theory's and also gives you an idea of how illogical or rather irrational the actual concept of evolution is.

golden rule of science is anything but G-D
Who says humans would evolve more than go extinct?

The science doesn't bother you?
not really. I'm perfectly fine saying that the world was created old with everything in it. As to the reasons why, I don't have any good ones and I'm fine with that too.

Where is it written that belief in a literal 6-day creation is a fundamental tenet of Judaism?

Why would Hashem create the world in a certain way and fill it with overwhelming evidence that it was created in a different way.

Why do we assume that maaseh breishis was written for the purpose of informing us of the specific manner of creation? Can we possibly think that we understand literally how the world was created on the basis of a handful of psukim? Only a fool would think so.

Maybe it was written for a specific and limited reason. (Rashbam for instance says if it were not written we wouldn't be able to understand the commandment of Shabbos.)

I recommend Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan's work on the subject. Stop twisting yourself into a pretzel all the time and give yourself permission to believe in the science. It's liberating.
I find it much more liberating to think that it's literal as opposed to saying that everything was done naturally except that the beginning was caused by God. To me that seems like squeezing God into the equation.

First time voting. I have absolutely no idea who to vote for.

Any suggestions and why do you suggest that person?

I barely know my neighbors. The only neighbors I knew somewhat were the one that I used to play with when I was younger.

I'm fine with it that way. I was never a social butterfly.
I must say one of the main reasons I donít move is because of my neighbors.
Why do you want to move to begin with?
I thought you would find more with the community being so close knit.
Interesting. I'd think so too but from my very limited (and biased) observations it doesn't seem so. I'm not sure why though.

Is anyone paying less than approx $52/month for unlimited usa domestic landline phone service?

keep in mind I have no internet access etc...
Would buying a cheap cell phone plan and using it with a cordless phone that has "link to cell" be an option?

Not gonna lie the thought has crossed my mind before. I was thinking of jokingly ask it when that article was brought up a while ago about that FBI agent undercover as a lady looking for a get.

Just to clarify I don't think he is, just that the thought has crossed my mind.

Go straight to the retention team. Mention Covid if needed...
I got the same offer for 53.99 or 53.49 for 200mbps/12months. Although they didn't offer the autopay discount or give me a credit for this past month.
