    What happens when they reach the point of “enshittification”?

      They don’t have shareholders to please and don’t seem to be hungry for money right now.

      Once that changes, sure, they’ll go downwards.

      Word of advice for you, if you have this attitude towards everything you won’t enjoy anything in life anymore.

        It’s a fair question these days but I probably deserve the kick back. 😀

          Honestly, I don’t even think it is a fair question. What about asking “when they reach enshittification” gives any options on the answer? They become shitty, like everything else.

          The problem is a lack of context, you post an innocent question but people reading it can’t tell if it’s a troll or what. You’ve got to be careful about wording stuff online, but also just ignore the imaginary internet points.

            Yea it can come off as sealioning but also it’s a bit of a daft question. If it gets enshittified then we move on to something that isn’t shit? What other answer do they expect from a tech forward community.
