    I guess that's hard to Google? It's actually relevant since the deal has to close very soon or Facebook has to pay $1B to WA for not closing the deal on time. So given that, do you think Facebook would put an unnecessary condition into this deal that can potentially prevent it from closing on time?

    Lawyers: "Hey Mark, this deal doesn't actually need EU approval, but we gonna go ahead and put this as a condition for closing anyway. Btw if we don't get the approval, which we don't need, the deal won't close and you'll have to pay $1B to whatsapp"


    Approval isn't needed, they are getting an opinion, since the deal can close without it. I've shown it to you and you are ignoring it. Also this wasn't a merger, this was an acquisition. If this was a merger it would take longer from the legal and tax standpoint. If you're going to be arguing technicalities at least get that right.

    I guess it's boring when you lose arguments and don't know what you're talking about. iamtim was adult enough to admit when he was wrong, you clearly don't have that in you.

    I'm done, have a good one!
    Also, meant acquisition, stupid news blogs confusing me.
    I don't know, you may have me over on this one so thanks for the explanation.
    However, the point was just to show that Facebook and Whatsapp are independent at the moment,nothing more. That is right, isn't it? I'm tired and this is boring because I don't like business stuff, I prefer philosophy and science :)

    So I presume that the fix has been done as joe is talking in the past sense, and guess we can expect the update in few days. Maybe till Monday ! Andddd I dunno what does his quite soon means! 1 day? 1 week? Or 1 month? ;)

    I know that it could be a little bit late for a change, and I haven't read all the thread to see if someone already said that, but I think that it may be more effective if we use a hashtag that make whatsapp looks like it is been shut down like #GoodByeWhatsapp or #WhatsappIsOver. It will make a lot of non-WP user pay attention to this (fear of lose the app) and by consequence make it a TT.

    Making WHATSAPP IS OVER a TT will for sure draw attention of whatsapp inc.

    this is why we're campaigning: to avoid more people like this
    I did a bit of overdramatic rant there, but joking, never gonna go back to lagdroid. Although this whole situation has been bad for WP.

    I don't understand. Can someone tell me why people prefer Whatsapp than Viber, Line, Kakaotalk, Wechat, and Skype.

    Until I read this thread, I didn't know that WP Central was populated by a bunch of spoiled thirteen year olds. Duly noted.
