I just noticed that #Gmaps are being extra, uhrm, "helpful" these days. The apps I use that utilize their location services now show auto-magically renamed streets.

So, N. Domingo, for example becomes "North Domingo", where the the "N" actually stands for Nicanor.



Truth. I didn't like the "interaction with ticket only". Even for chat. SotM was online, wasn't it? So why to limit the communicatio?
