It looks like Jitsi thinks it's okay to spy/track their users via third party services (like Firebase, Crashlytics, Amplitude) in the name of 'chasing down malfunctions in software'.

In a pure functional language, all constructs can be expressed as anonymous functions ("lambda functions"). I wrote an article "Everything is a function" that explains how this works.

"[…] I find this deceptive and very concerning. For a number of important reasons, hosting GNU development on a proprietary Microsoft platform should be verboten. And for users to be programatically redirected away from the GNU site to the Microsoft site is ethically criminal, and foreboding institutional death."

It's about time we stopped buying into the propaganda phrase "ad blockers", and started calling user-protection tools like #uBlockOrigin and #NoScript what they are; spy blockers. If I display ads on my website using HTML and CSS, spy blockers won't block those. As far as they know, the text, images, audio, or video that make up the ads could be anything. So what's really being blocked is not ads, but tracking. Thanks to the authors of this site, for pointing this out:
