The U.S.A.: Unbelievably Stupid Arseholes

I'm not sure any more words need to be minced about them:
I find it seriously hard to believe that anyone sincerely thinks the United States of America are still a great (or even decent) country.
Authoritarianism is for wimps.

Smart people don't buy "smart" devices without very carefully weighing up the risks and benefits beforehand.

My PC: Core i3 4130 on GA-H87M-D3H with GT640 OC 2GiB and 2 * 8GiB Kingston HyperX 1600MHz, 2 * WD3003FZEX-00Z4SA0, Pioneer BDR-209DBKS, Seasonic G-360, Chenbro PC31031, Windows 7 Pro (though I do want to build a second system with GNU/Linux).

Dimplex = Dumbplex
I have ample evidence that for a "reputable" brand (or so they might have been in decades past), they're downright disgraceful now.
You might as well just buy an actual cheapo; at least you'll get what you pay for that way.
