@JPEG Great last update. I love how you maintain and extend functionality really often. On a further update I would like to see larger font sizes. And the ability to use the system font size doesn‘t seem to match it. In Mast the size is much smaller.
Mast 1.6.6 is here! It’s a big one. 🥳

Surveillance Capitalists be like,
"I'm going to rob your house tonight. Uncheck these 200 checkboxes representing each item in your house that I am going to take. Any checkbox you fail to check gives us the permission to rob that item. And we can't guarantee the list here is exhaustive, nor that our 1000 partners won't rob your house."
We shouldn't be "opting out" of their violations of our rights. We should be asking what gives them the right to steal our behavioral data in the first place.
@kaniini This is a common philosophy in open-source software, and I have to tell you, it's a bad one. It is one of the big reasons why so much open-source software is just bad.
It is just an axcuse to never commit to anything, never take a stand, and to just leave the hard decisions up to the user instead, who probably have even less of a chance than you to know what the good choice is.
It leaves you with lots of software that is a big mess.
