Hope everyone is enjoying this Mailchimp server outage as a reminder that every link in your inbox is now hostage to a private corporation thanks to marketers' desire to track your every move

@iangreenleaf hasn't it been best practice never* to click on a link in email for a decade+ anyway? I am sort of bemused that it remains so incredibly common.

* I make an exception for emails I requested/am expecting

@lawremipsum why would you click on a link in an email you didn't request and weren't expecting?!
