What the fuck?

Michael Tsai rounds some things up. Including Paul Rosania’s tweet:

The vibe is that it’s probably an effort to snuff out companies that snoop on your email, scraping data out of it for ??? reasons.

I find it entirely obnoxious. Slightly understandable that Amazon (perhaps?) wants to fight against privacy-be-damning email snoopers, but to not tell me why, and instead neuter my experience without any options feels worse.
