    Impressed by your change of position on "policing". Opinionated and knowledgeable works for me
    Be mindful of production content that exposes too much personal excess. We’re BACK.

    If obvious get kicked out of the airspace to make Amazon fuel warm and fuzzy I wouldn’t be surprised if they start building and flying cheap drones to take down the Amazon drones. I wouldn’t do that but I think just about everybody else would LOL…
