Anyone who lies to their users about the security/privacy afforded by their service, so that they can make money from them, is an unredeemable asshole of the first degree. Looking at you, Protonmail.

I hope they're satisfied when their customers are getting the rubber hose treatment because they were lied to about just how private Protonmail was.

The people who need encryption the most are the most vulnerable among us, and it's your god damn responsibility to truthfully inform them about the privacy you're proporting to protect them with.

The people who need encryption shouldn't use email for communication :)
I swtched from "free" megacorp service to paid account only because I don't like the fact my mail provider is selling my data

@tootbrute I've been speaking out against Protonmail for years now. My recommendation these days is Migadu

@sir I've used FastMail for a few years now and had zero issues with them personally. They aren't super encrypted or anything of the like, but AFAIK they respect their users' privacy.

I am ever looking for an alternative to PGP, too, as I've heard it's not the greatest any more for email or anything else. @tootbrute

@greyor @tootbrute my problem with fastmail is that australlia has reprehensible tech security/privacy laws
