dropbox? You can't put it somewhere people don't get doxxed?

I'm afraid I'm not very tech savvy when it comes to alternate options. I heard about dropbox's vulnerabilities, ads, etc. and noticed it stores a ton of cookies. But I don't know where else to look. How about Megasync?

There, I swapped it out. I'm also considering

It was both Jews and Romans.

If Jesus was even remotely Jewish, then that is their affair. They even took the punishment of Jewish insurrection leaders into their own hands.

If the narrative is to be believed, several Roman centurions were sympathetic to his message and earned his respect. If the myth that his father was a Roman centurion holds true, then he had the right to invoke his citizenship as Paul allegedly did.

There's zero evidence that Joseph was a centurion. He is thought to have been some kind of craftsman, and undoubtedly Jewish.

Also, Roman citizens could not be put to death or even imprisoned, let alone crucified. Those punishments were only for the "lessers", the subhumans in the eyes of the empire.

Lol. Yes, Roman citizens could be put to death and imprisoned. Being thrown from the Tarpeian Rock was a common punishment for Romans.

I believe the most that could be done to citizens was deportation. However, most people were not citizens. Only those of high social status or wealth were granted citizenship, along with their children.

Initially, but not during Rome's decline. And what about those who acquired citizenship by means of auxiliary service?

Exceptions were made for Alexandrians, who were the only Egyptians who could become citizens. Only separatist races (Egyptians, Jews) were looked upon by Romans with increasing suspicion. Exceptions were also made for blacks who distinguished themselves, such as Septimius Severus.
