Installed AFWall+ via , I wonder how, these days, a pragmatic a sustainable business model for funding FLOSS development could look like. AFWall+ apparently advertises a paid "pro" version (which is non-free and thus "bad"). Everything in is free-of-charge, just some apps ask for a donation (which is not something you can rely upon if you want to develop FLOSS but want or need to make a living developing software).

Synapse v0.30.0 just landed, supporting all your GDPR needs. Even if you don't care about GDPR, you might like the Server Notices feature that allows for 'message of the day' functionality.

Interesting... I don't really like this approach. It seems Instapaper (and Pinterest) have successfully prevented dealing with GDPR for the last two years, and both are large enough for that. Yet it's a pretty big player with quite a user base, and it's these events all along with more general criticism about GDPR which, for sure, will make all work of trying to convince people to honour privacy and data protection more difficult rather than easier in a post-GDPR world.

@z428 yeah I do not know. I was always of the thought it was pretty random. Wikipedia has perhaps the most info.

Wo ist die Grenze zwischen Panikmache und berechtigter Kritik?

"Die vorprogrammierte Enttäuschung der Datenschutzaktivisten wird zur Suche nach Schuldigen führen. Verantwortlich für absehbare Vollzugsdefizite werden jedoch nicht die Datenschutzbeamten sein, sondern naive und realitätsblinde Politiker, die mit der DSGVO ein bürokratisches Monster geschaffen haben, das die gezielt geschürten und völlig überzogenen Erwartungen nicht erfüllen kann und wird."
