    No to datacenter

    A lot of the Turkish applications has same answers and mined/node for same projects. Coincidence?

    Note that the hardware is yours and under your control. Examine the possibility of data center banning. I see enough. I have votes.

    I am not giving a comment on a nation because I dont care from which country somebody is.I was just giving a comment about the application(like the others).

    I am also against data centers.
    If you would run it at home you would have my vote.
