Yikes! My bad. 'No political posts at all in the regular sections.' Got it.

Notice: I've replied in Basement to 'Riddle' again;
(removed Link).
I hope it will seem fair-minded to post a simple 'Notice' here, but the more substantive content in the Basement 'Riddle' thread, which gives registered DonationCoder members a fair chance to take a whack at solving the puzzle. BTW, it is not political.
What is it? What is 'Riddle' describing?  8)

'Rusty maze' reminds me of core Portal levels, which I absolutely loved.

Probably supposed to be in the 'Interesting stuff' thread ...

On another note regarding the ZenFone 7:
The key selling point and differentiating factor of the ZenFone 7 as opposed to other phones in the market right now is the fact that it employs a full-screen display without any notch or camera cut-out, enabling a seamless screen experience without distractions.

Not much research went into that article:
OnePlus 7T Pro
ASUS ZenFone 6
Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro
Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro
Samsung Galaxy A80
Vivo V17 Pro
Vivo Nex 3
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom
... and probably more.

Crows are nasty birds. The first house I lived in was located in a small village (just below 10.000 people). Yet it had 4 churches. Well, 3 churches and an abbey. and a lot of rural estate outside the village's border limits. So crows were not an uncommon phenomenon. All crows I encountered were nasty, mean and really smart. Ravens (or known in Dutch as: kauw). Much less nasty, less mean and just as smart. These could actually be trained with a lot of effort.

Still, you would encounter at times a nasty raven as well. Cycling is popular in the Netherlands and in some areas you could expect them. My brother was attacked once by a crow and once by a raven. I was actually around when a raven landed on his head while cycling and the raven started to poke him hard on the top of his head with its beak. We kept cycling and the raven draw blood before we could scare it away.

Valuables and other shiny stuff are a real target for those birds. And they were really smart at stealing such items from your house. Not to be underestimated, those feathered bastards.

Your "small village" has more residents than my town.

 :o

Here, villages have 5-100 residents.

Town > 3000 residents
