That said, you're not wrong about reception.. ugh. This has been building and I was seeing it pop up in places all over the OS. Seeing it in the entirety of Chrome incognito was the straw that broke the camel's back. Appreciate your input.

The fact that I'm this upset about it just further proves how much of a mis-step it is. I'm not interested in being PC about major companies making such enormous obvious mistakes.

, , and others, it would be great if you could cover this and all the places it occurs. You don't have to quote me and my rant, but this is something Google needs to hear from its' customers. This does not aid 'security'.

Imagine any web dev trying to take a not-logged-in screenshot on a site they're making. Shit like this making it into production implies a serious disconnect from user needs. This is the kind of shit people need to be held accountable and fired for. This is dev gross negligence.

For anyone curious, yes, this happens anywhere in Chrome incognito, on the Chase banking app, anyone who decides you're not worthy of screenshotting their app or having access to your own information. Applies to entire apps by the dev simply ticking LayoutParams.FLAG_SECURE.

Little Feedback for , , and . This bullshit needs to leave the browser and OS immediately or I'm done. I'm a developer, and it is none of my business if someone screenshots my app. Even if it were, you should notify me, not allow me to prevent it.

You should also have something to gain from the change. Anita Sarkeesian attacking games when she never plays them, white people self-deprecating and guilting themselves for whatever is popular this week, if the only thing you stand to gain is virtue signaling, quit. Nobody cares

You also need to demonstrate mutual respect if someone is listening to your concern. If you act entitled to whatever change you want, or in doing so seek to destroy something I love (comedy/games censorship), you should respect and listen to the opposing side and their rationale.

My respect is earned, and for you to use my time on bitching, you better have a good reason if you want me to listen or care. You better have a real problem, and have at least one idea for a fix that isn't making me aware of your complaint ("spreading awareness"). Does nothing.

The problem is at some point people who were bitching just to bitch were given validation, and now they're given validation almost universally regardless of how ridiculous they are. People have to be being downright insane for people to speak out against them or dare to not care.

.. since your health comes before everything else, it also makes accepting the role change in the series much easier. Thing is tho, we miss you. If UbiSoft were ever to ask you to voiceover the Blacklist entry, or voice another entry in the Splinter Cell series, would you accept?

Hi Michael, I'm an enormous fan of your work, including Jack Granger (CnC3), Sam Fisher (entire Splinter Cell series), etc. I heard there may have been health reasons for why you weren't in Blacklist and if that's true not only am I glad you made that decision..

How does this compare with something like gitlab?
