thanks for the info!
this is a f**king nogo, users must realize now to directly support their coders financialy, otherwhise we loose our freedom very soon... is dead for me.

@pocketvj don't worry, this is free software, someone can maintain a fork if they go through with it. and if you use a 100% free distro your maintainers already remove malware like this for you, like the great people at parabola:
liberapay.com/Parabola

@unfa @zrythm
you are right :)
its always freaking me out that everyone is feeding the tech giants with telemetry and no one cares with the argument they have nothing to hide.

its like saying: we dont need freedom of speech because i do not have to say anything.
