@stick explain to a fellow imbecile
@tho hah, just seeing your note.
The chemical symbol for a proton is H+ (a hydrogen atom that's lost its electron). An acidic solution is one with extra protons (hydrogen ions). To neutralize acid, you add a basic solution — one with extra hydroxide ions (a water molecule that's lost one hydrogen ion). The symbol for a hydroxide ion is OH-. When H+ and OH- come together, they form H2O (water).
@emersion's HYDROXIDE neutralizes PROTONmail, making it standards-compliant.
@tho P.S. — this is all my trying to remember high-school chemistry so I hope I'm not too confusing hahaha
@stick Ahah ! I was bored and needed a name… :P
