@Spevacus Post deleted an hour ago, account remains; possibly was deleted only by flags, and not moderator.
 
@Rob CS50 appears to only have one (visibly) active mod. Might be a bit before they sweep it up.

@Spevacus It has no elected or appointed community moderators; the only people with moderator rights are those from the sponsor (edX + Harvard)
 
Oh. Huh.
 
Same used to be for Ask Patents, until very recently
 
Catija was handling spam over there for awhile until a mod (or mods?) was (were?) appointed.

So. My mom's almost brand-new phone is probably hacked. It consumed a lot of data in the form of "hotspot and tethering", even when I don't see hotspot on.
Are there other causes for this, or is my suspicion correct?
Its initial hotspot password was easy, so I guess that's the cause. Is there anything I can do besides a factory reset? Hmm.
Andrew probably knows a lot about Android

@M.A.R. Be certain that you have these settings to disable unwanted Data usage and block APPs.

Q: Diamonds are not forever

Faded GiantI regret to have to inform you that Stack Exchange (SE) has removed my moderator status today. I had been an elected moderator on Chemistry for four years and a pro tempore moderator on another site for more than five years based on the old moderator agreement without any problems. Now SE thinks ...

@M.A.R. well, things change, it's natural that not everyone will change alongside. I don't know that person, don't know the reasoning behind not signing the new agreement, so can't make a good judgement call.
At least it wasn't done in public and while shaming him, that's an improvement.
@M.A.R. anyway as for phone hack, I've heard about lots of cases where people got whatsapp message from a friend asking them to confirm something, and once confirmed, their whatsapp is moved to the full control of the hacker. Not about hotspot, but if hackers can so easily steal whatsapp accounts, surely other hacks are possible too. Reset sounds like a good option.
 
@ShadowWizardWearingMask Observing Faded Giant's online interactions for over half a decade, I'm pretty sure that whenever any policy alienates people like him, it's the policy that needs to change.
. . . Wow, Otto Warburg was such a badass
