They’re using Cloudflare which is a bit weird for a “private” service.
Of all the commercial networks they could use, surely CloudFlare is less evil than e.g. Google
Cloudflare isn’t less “evil” than Google by any means. Both are equally bad and should be avoided at all cost
I would disagree. I understand the issues people have with Cloudflare and how their man-in-the-middle as a service business model compromises privacy and internet decentralization in general, but there’s just no comparison to Google, whose business model is to build personalized advertising profiles for all of their users.
Some may make more money than others, but if they spy on you it means that they spy on you and eventually sell your data. You’re the product. And as someone already said in this thread, you cannot self-host. This appears to be neither decentralized nor private.
IMO if you’re starting with your project is understandable, they seem to have a shit ton of money put on it, thought, so that may make it a bit unforgivable, but things can change.
