I really hate organizations that send you emails like "You've got a new message on our dashboard!".

Thanks, but if you have an email service set up to notify me why couldn't just include the message in this email? Instead of wasting my time requiring me to log into your system.

@SuperDicq Pretty sure it's because of bullshit like "We want users to use our system often!"

@lanodan@queer.hacktivis.me That's usually in the case of like corporate social media platforms and such, but there's also government agencies and most notably medical services that I use doing this.

@lanodan@queer.hacktivis.me Well, I know exactly why they do this. They do so for security and privacy. But GPG exists you know?


My bank does this for this reason. But then the message is to let me know that I did a transfer from that same website (duh) and they also sent me the same info via SMS (yay, security indeed)
