Google removes yet another FOSS application from the Google Play store because it links to its website which links to its Patreon https://github.com/language-transfer/lt-app/pull/44
Walled gardens strike again
@cwebber How... how many levels of indirection are allowed? What if you do a google search for the app, and their alternate payment shows up? Is that allowed?
@cstanhope then at least Google feels like they were included in your middle step and won't go cry in a corner
don't use DDG though that'll make them upset and angry and sobbing and throwing chairs
@cwebber As if we weren't having enough trouble funding our freesoftware development!
Who other FOSS would be questioning Google's rules?
@cwebber "We have a Patreon to support the development of this app! Please look for it online, as we are not allowed to link to it, or a page that links to it, anywhere on this page." ~ index_google.htm
@cwebber "UPDATE: The app has been reinstated! #45 reverts this PR."
