The important point is that, if you’re able to readily switch to a different app when your current one changes its payment model, then… do it. Just vote with your wallet, and don’t worry about it.

Bothsiderism:

It’s an intentional tactic to disorient dialogue and recast the conversation in a new way. It’s goal is primarily to seek balance after a perceived imbalance has occurred.
