@DilbertDave @ProtonMail I think the food label is a bad analogy.
You probably wouldn't read the stats on a 2.50$ bag of chips that claim to be healthier. But you probably will read the stats on a 1000$ phone.
Though, that being said I don't think apple users would read this either.
@buildsghost Another reason to include e.g. 🇺🇸 English and 🇬🇧 English is down to locales. Dates and numbers in these versions of English is different.
@buildsghost For a language picker icon, makes sense.
But since there's no "English icon", it just makes sense to use a flag. Here I'd suggest to include e.g. all English speaking countries w/ flags.
@TheBlueMatt I like privacy, so I was using tutanota. But it's UI is meh compared to gmail and is lacking important filtering features.
Recently @ProtonMail has seriously improved their UI and feature set and so a few months ago I swapped to PM.
@TheBlueMatt Every comment here is about spam. But I'd say that gmail's golden feature is its UI/UX. It's got everything most people need in a clean UI. Everytime I've used outlook I've felt lost.
@TimMcDo45599169 @TheBlueMatt I actually have less spam on ProtonMail than Gmail. But part of the issue is that I dont give my email away willy nilly and unsubscribe from stuff before they're annoying.
@ProtonMail not sure when it was updated, but I really like the new mobile client. Feels just like the web client and I'm really satisfied with the service overall.
I'm excited to see how the calendar evolves next.
Would be cool to have something like Calendly integrated.
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak Originally, I just wanted to understand why you used the word you used to describe the situation.
I was wondering if I maybe missed something in the story.
Then I deviated into... whatever. A classic async internet shouting match plagued with race conditions and confusion.
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak Its like you don't even read what I write.
I've probably said it like 5 times now that the ban was justified.
Thats what I'm disagreeing on.
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak CI/CD pipeline failure is not international harm. Its a major fucking inconvenience sure, with a thousand devs solving the same problem at the same time (rolling back faker.js to 5.5.3)
Harm is, services are down.
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak Go over my last tweets in this mega thread and you'll see that they've all been trying to present the situation as it happened, as accurately as I can. I believe what Marak did was pretty shit and the consenquences were just.
I just ask you tell it as it is.
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak I'd argue that, if you're accusing someone of a federal crime, you should use make sure it's the right word.
What marak did probably falls under cybercrime, aka different crime. If you don't know the right word, use Google to find the right word, instead of misinforming people.
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak He violated npm's TOS only.
Github had the right because they have a catch all clause.
But if this is your only complaint, then I can agree with you that both companies are in the right.
I'd rather github didn't have a catch all, but they do so they can.
@GergelyOrosz I'm just waiting for apple to be forced to allow sideloading. Iirc there was some litigation about it and apple pulled another "it's not in our users best interest" again.
@CatMcGeeCode Oh, looks like I got some research to do. Thanks for the leads.
@CatMcGeeCode Why do you specifically not like solana? Did something happen recently that I missed?
@CatMcGeeCode Which smart contract/utility coin do you plan on ever owning?
@blipojones @PerhapsABot @nickfla1 @marak If it's built on a trustless model, all you'd need is a rule where the network needs to agree that what you received is the legitimate copy. This is easily achieved by means of hashes (e.g. Md5)
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak This wasn't an attempt to get money.
Marak was dumb for uploading to npm but I doubt he's dumb enough to think people would trust him enough to pay him after this fiasco.
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak Why is it not extortion? Because no harm was done that only marak could fix. Literally anyone could fix the issue by removing the ^ and ~ from their package.json.
@klayhamn @JoshuaKGoldberg @marak You're mixing up two distinct events that happend over the span of a year. Hence why I asked WHICH one are you talking about.
He asked for money in late 2020. And said to fork the package.
His undeniably malicious npm publish, is not extortion. And is just a major fuck up.
