Hey Art, clever chat for a "no value" video actually!

My take on the (tired) privacy thing is, I don’t think in terms of “threat levels” (most people either, I gather). What I don't like about this is not the individual impact, “Hey this dude just edited this mp3 file.” It’s that it enables some particular people to know and predict users behaviors, which enables dark patterns, and potentially even more shady stuff. It's just feeding that monster, and I don‘t want that.

@art There was a good thread on Lobster about this where people pointed out there were less than a dozen core developers and all the people complaining in github issues had literally contributed nothing at all. Also, didn't they originally have this as opt-in and change it back after the backlash?
