This feature causes all community members to violate the code of conduct. Bug report:
I have deleted all my Ubuntu installations and replaced them with Debian.
This is a massive shift - never before have I seen an open source project with volunteer contributors go down the route of misleading users for the financial gain of the project founder.
Anyone who cares about open/free software principles should abandon this project unless the system is altered to respect user consent and privacy.
That means - opt in, explicit consent, and if it's not already, open source for the server-side part of this feature, with the option to use third party servers one might be more inclined to trust.
