'No, open source Audacity audio editor is not “spyware”' by Jim Salter
@packetcat arguing that audacity now has similar telemetry to firefox, which i also do not trust, isn't a very compelling argument

...still, I long for the days when I used to manage things via ZoneAlarm, like 20 years ago, on Windows. 😆
I loved the idea of granting explicit access to apps, only when I chose. Apps like Audacity, for instance? I would've never let them access the internet, even if I didn't suspect them of doing anything nefarious, simply because what I used them for didn't _need_ internet access.
