I mean, as long as their service works and they aren't doing anything outrageous then why switch? If you only buy from organizations without anyone in management who has wack moral agendas then you won't have anywhere to go
Honestly, security-related products require trust in the product. If the company would go after their own employee's religious beliefs, how can I trust that the company won't go after mine?
That’s the type of attitude that allows these types of crazy policies to proliferate, though.
There are probably numerous employees of Bitwarden who dislike the HR policy but keep quiet because they want to keep their job and they don’t like discord.
Likewise there are plenty of customers who would view moving to another service as a monumental pain.
But when customers respond by handing together and voting loudly with their wallets, companies listen because it becomes an existential threat. Only those few with massive profits (like Google) can afford to ignore it.
You could even view it as doing an otherwise good company a favor - coordinated action in this manner which provides a short, sharp shock probably won’t kill them, but it often gives the right-thinking executives a mandate to change their practices.
I wonder if it will be a never ending story. Recently I found a page on Github (this one: https://github.com/nextcloud/providers#providers) where the companies using Nextcloud are listed in a table with a is green or not column. It feels to me like publicly trying to shame someone. Ethically, it's bad. Yet, it's good software. I ended up choosing my pi and samba but can understand people are not willing to change when they hear the first ethically bad news about the company behind a software.
The previous office rule was "no politics in the office." However, wokeism has brought far-left politics into office space.
It makes you wonder why the "no politics in the office" rule only applies to one side to shut down the discussion.
