I am both a fan and critic of . But in a time when concerns and discussion of our is probably at an all-time high, this seems quite tone-deaf.

And before folks recommend 3rd party apps: yes, I usually use Apollo. But I also sometimes like to check on what Reddit is doing with its own.

@chartier It is opt-in rather than opt-out. For that reason alone I'd say it isnt tone deaf but rather is acting responsibly towards those concerns.

@freemo Hrm. Fair point. You're right, the app doesn't prompt with a modal pop-up that must be answered. It's just a value proposition and we can take or leave it.
