Nothing has made me want to cancel more than the condescending, passive-aggressive use of “Oops!” to mean that *I* have to change something. “Oops” means “I fucked up”, not “You fucked up.” Talk to your customers like adults, please.

I've never given Dropbox money, but I migrated off it when they made their free tier worse. A 3-device limit is incredibly user-hostile.

Not a Dropbox fan but complaining about a free tier and calling it “user-hostile” is pretty rich. I’m sure they miss having you.

Apologism for a billion-dollar company is pretty rich. I'm sure you're great at parties.

Imagine pretending free stuff from a private company then going with the old “great at parties” thing, oof

This is the kind of exaggerated outrage nonsense that ruins the internet for me. Come on, really? “Oops” is now condescending and passive aggressive? I’m not usually one to say this, but when did we become such easily triggered snowflakes?

Amen. And someone should be even more careful when he/she is a relevant public figure

Not only Dropbox... many services in this industry especially somehow are using such wording as they are thinking it’s “cool.”

There's a big reason UX writing exists now as a discipline: copywriters being cute when it needs to be functional

Constantly maxing out my CPU(s) made me drop it, even though I was quite fond of it.

That's why I pulled the trigger today and just deleted it from my mac. September is just around the corner and sharing iCloud folders will be the greatest gift of all.

I recently installed the Dropbox app on a new computer and was told I could only have it enabled on three devices (including iOS devices). Felt pretty user-hostile to decide which device(s) could no longer sync to my 10+ year old account before installing it on a new Mac.

At least they don’t use emojis yet... Oops! You’re not connected to the internet 😊

I hate the use of “Oops” for error messages in general. I worked on a project that used it and every time I’d see it, all I could think is “Opps, the app crapped it’s pants!” Which, was sometimes true, but still…
