a) First post, open the 'spoiler' tag, read, enjoy.

Of course you find differing information.
The posts where made over a period of two years, not all 3,000+ post are snapshots of what was known back in 7/4/2016 but instead show a changing of the current situation and a changing understanding of that situation.

You can't expect static information on a general topic.

I spent the WHOLE DAY running every possible test I could find thinking I had been Hijacked by something because I kept coming up with that redirect URL! This should be at the top of the page in BOLD until that site is taken down.

I was having problems with my Kindle Voyage and I was searching to see if the Font folder on the Kindle is normally empty of Fonts or was it because I had simply copied all my books to my desktop and then set my Kindle up as "new" again and copied all the books back to the Kindle.
