Facebook halts Oculus Quest sales in Germany amid privacy concerns

Facebook subsidiary Oculus says it has "temporarily paused" sales of Oculus Quest headsets to customers in Germany. Reports suggest the move is in response to concerns from German regulators about the recently announced requirement that all Oculus users will need to use a Facebook account by 2023 to log in to the device.

TL;DR -- Like the stock market, forum threads need some kind of throttle, circuit breaker, maximum capacity limit, or topic expiration dates. 😄

Agreed, but moderation had a habit of closing posts they felt were similar in topic so they end up being conveniently crowded concerning difficult topics.
