@datenteiler Sometimes I wonder if we should think ANY telemetry is bad.. If we block even foss programs' data collecting wouldn't it slow down development? And later many people complain about open source/free software as "forever unfinished", "underdeveloped", "unfit for casual users" and chose "beter" corporate products...
Of course I think about technical usage statistics, reading personal data is always awful.
@aladar @chris @madargon @datenteiler butting in, I don't think telemetry is a bad thing by itself as long as the code is open source, you know what kind of data is gathered, the gathering part is transparent about it (i.e. letting users know) and users always have the choice to disable it. In my opinion plasma checks all the boxes
