For those that have left FA (and most for good reason), here is Dragoneer's newest dick move.
In their TOS, it specifically states that FA will not participate in link tracking. What link tracking basically is a way to track where you go, even after you leave a page. Some even go so far as to get private information about you (like name, age, where you live, etc). Well, FA decided to start implementing link tracking. Bonus move, they did it without updating their TOS.
Dragoneer's defense for this action is this: We are in the process of updating our TOS to include this change and furthermore, it was a only a test. Really, that is the best you can do after you broke U.S. Law? I'm sorry, but a serious change like that should have been made before the test. My desire to leave FA completely yet grows again. Not only have they done their witch hunt, but now they do this.
On top of that, Dragoneer tries to sell that the service they are using (viglink) doesn't obtain private information. Yet VigLink specifically mentions how it uses private, track able information on a person's habits. Well that's odd, they admit that they gather personal information yet Fuckoneer says they don't.
Really, if Inkbunny can convert a couple of the big name artist to transfer over, I think FA's days will be numbered.
