We have nothing in common for two reasons. Firstly I don’t imagine any of the words I was big words, and secondly I engage with the substance of what people say. Everything about your replies screams of a man disillusioned with the fact that a part of his vocation is enabling the erosion of privacy, on behalf of an industry almost universally hated by folks in all places. You claim people receiving the emails don’t mind, but you silently exfiltrate their data as an alternative of making it opt in.
You claim you love your work but you have time and again pretended to be ignorant to the incontrovertible fact that you’re allowing your clients to disregard the privacy settings of their customers. Far greater than the immorality of exfiltrating sensitive information about users who’re absolutely unaware of what you’re doing and boasting of the “highbrow prowess” of… copying a person else’s answer and randomising the length of the picture URI, just for HEY to make some adjustments which leave your answer DOA just two days later, I find the intellectual dishonesty on reveal here to be hilarious. You appear to trust that “tracking pixels” euphemistic in the extreme: “monitoring pixels” would be better serve some form of customer benefit, but everything about the manner in which you enable them suggests that you know that buyers, if given an explicit choice, would opt out in droves. Users of privacy conscious email amenities like HEY are explicitly opting out of being tracked by spammers and spam enablers such as you. Why are you going to great lengths to ignore their choice?You are boasting of the incontrovertible fact that Superhuman users can opt out of email tracking, but that emails sent with your provider will still be tracked.
Why do you think that’s applicable?In a nested comment above you liken it to a unsolicited mail marketer wanting to grasp even if they should send more envelopes of spam mail to a man’s postal tackle. But behaviour like yours, and the undeniable fact that at no point the twenty or so years I’ve had an email address has any email marketer ever stopped sending me emails as a result of I didn’t open their emails, is accurately the explanation that amenities like HEY have begun to appear: your industry has established repeatedly that it is unable or unwilling to behave with any integrity whatsoever. Cool. Just so we’re clear, you’re linking to an editorial on Medium advising that nobody should give anyone advice, written by the woman who wrote an article called “How to make over $1,000 a month writing on Medium”?Not giving advice is certainly the kind of counterintuitive idea I like, however I guess we want to consider the incontrovertible fact that if we didn’t give advice we’d see a dramatic breakdown in civilisation on an unprecedented scale. Maybe we should always pick a distinct messenger from a blogger?And maybe, just maybe, be sure to be humble and receptive to the comments?A lot of people during this thread are calling you a scumbag.
