So suddenly there’s a lot of attention around email and it’s exposing how many people in the web community still use Gmail. Like actually trust all your personal information and communication (and that of your potentially marginalised or vulnerable contacts) with Google. 🤮

There are a lot of hard problems and lack of alternatives when it comes to rights-respecting technology. But email (as imperfect as it is) has a fair few affordable alternative providers. Small change, big difference.

@laura Beg pardon, but what is wrong exactly with Google for contacts and Gmail?

@Down10 Respectfully, that may be the wrong question. It's not about any one particular google product. But anyway @laura outlined pretty well one of the problems with google that relates to email and contacts in this thread starter.
