The decision comes as Turkey faces increased political and economic pressure to take action. The Turkish lira has been among the most battered of developing-market currencies in recent weeks. Following the central bank’s decision, the lira strengthened in after-hours trading.

interesting news but wrong section.

It is a free for all in here now - no one follows the guidelines and the mods don't care.  When you start following them, then feel free to criticize others in here.

You see someone drop litter on the street so you decide it's fine to start shitting everywhere?

In this case, yes. 1. To make a point, and 2. To encourage people to follow the guidelines by illustrating the absurdity of having them when no one follows them since discussions about it go nowhere.
